Toyota Yaris GRMN Engine Specifications

The Toyota Yaris GRMN will be coming with a 1.8L Supercharged engine. Direct specifications haven't been dropped yet but from what I've been reading, it is said to be "more than 207hp"

The standard Yaris makes 106hp so coming close to double that, we should see some impressive performance out of this. A lightweight vehicle, sitting on BBS 17" wheels wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE050 sounds extremely capable.

The 1.8L Supercharged engine will be mated to a 6-speed manual LSD transaxle.

How much power do you think it'll produce?

The typical 1.8L these days on its own can get around 150-170 in some case easily. So with forced induction breaking well into the low 200 range is possible. I don't see it getting past 225, I will be surprised if that's the case.

For a vehicle this small and light, that type of power is more than enough. If 200whp is there, it'll be real fun. Especially banging through the gears. Add a tune and squeeze somewhere like 220whp and it'll get real crazy real quick.

Probably the biggest problem we will have with that level of power is grip. From factory they run Potenza's which have been know to be sticky. Toyota hasn't really been known for offering sticky tires, FRS/BRZ was one good example of that.

Oh heavens yes, the tires on those were terrible but it was for a reason. They wanted to make it universal in the sense that you could drift it or do some light tracking with it. The wheels sucked for tracking lmao.

Potenzas should be good though, worst case scenario if you're going to bump up the power, bump up to some AD08 R tires and you'll be perfect.
