Another air-conditioned affair Americans can’t have. Everyone collectively blow with me.
I’ll get this, the catechism that’s acutely popped into your mind, out of the way first: It’s awful absurd this is advancing to America. The 2021 Toyota GR Yaris (GR is the abridgement for Gazoo Racing) fabricated its advancing admission on Friday and my, oh, my, it’s absolutely the able hot hatchback.
Let’s alpha with the powertrain. There’s a brand-spanking-new 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-three agent onboard. From those three cylinders and turbo, this little dude makes a whopping 268 horsepower. That, friends, is appealing nuts. Routing the ability to all four auto is a six-speed chiral transmission, and that’s the sole advantage here.
Why would Toyota go through all of this agitation to anatomy a analgesic hot hatch? The World Assemblage Championship. The Japanese automaker will booty the almighty affair to the WRC alongside Tommi Mäkinen Racing. In fact, the chase aggregation had a lot of amplitude during the architecture and engineering process. Truly, this is a homologated assemblage car for the road.
Speaking of engineering, let’s dive into added of the nitty-gritty details. The GR Yaris is a three-door anatomy appearance fabricated from carbon-fiber polymer and aluminum to accumulate weight off. In fact, it weighs a rather airy 2,822 pounds, which helps it accomplish a actual advantageous power-to-weight ratio. Each of the 268 ponies has to move aloof over 10 pounds. Toyota said 0 to 62 mph will appear in aloof 5.5 seconds, and befitting the accelerator to the attic will acknowledge a top acceleration of 143 mph.
Underneath it all is a MacPherson strut arrangement in the front, and a double-wishbone abeyance at the rear. This different bureaucracy comes from accumulation two Toyota platforms: the automaker’s GA-B and GA-C architectures. This Frankenstein move accustomed for the different animated bureaucracy and the new all-wheel drive system. Speaking of the AWD system, it can accelerate 100% of the torque to the advanced or rear wheels. So, yeah, this can be a abreast rear-wheel-drive hot bear with three driver-controlled settings to breach the antithesis accordingly.
As I mentioned, there’s acceptable aught adventitious of this advancing to America. The platforms acclimated for the car aren’t begin in the US, as we accomplish do with a rebadged Yaris archetypal here. It’s about a Mazda2. In sum, “The GR Yaris is based on the European-spec Yaris and there is no plan to action that agent actuality in the US,” a Toyota adumbrative told Roadshow.
Those away will absolutely be in for a lot fun, though. And if any of you appetite to bang it up a notch, Toyota will alike advertise a Circuit Pack that adds a limited-slip cogwheel on both axles. Paired with Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires, this affair is activity to rip.
