Toyota Yaris WRC hits Germany

Following its victory in Finland, the Toyota Gazoo World Rally Team will be travelling to Germany to partake in the Rallye Deutschland. Last year Toyota came just one place away from the podium, and are hoping to make it to the top three this year. The event kicks off on August 16th.

I like how easy it will be to bring some WRC styling to the Yaris GRMN because a lot of those splitters can be bought as universal parts then trimmed to perfect fitment.
Anyone here planning to take styling up a notch? I would be too tempted if a GRMN was in my ownership

Just a heads up on this event, that Ott Tanak won first place in his Yaris. The current standings are as follows :

WRC standings after SS18 -
1. Tänak 3h 03m 36.9sec
2. Neuville +39.2sec
3. Lappi +1m 00.9sec
4. Ogier +1m 34.5sec
5. Suninen +2m 02.9sec
6. Mikkelsen +2m 13.8sec

The next stage will take place on September 13-16th.

Impressive but it makes you wonder how far off from production versions it is. Subaru benefited a lot from its Rally involvement, which lead to success of the Impreza.
Toyota, if they bring consumer products out with enough of what Subaru did, could see a similar response from consumers.

A bunch of videos have started dropping on YouTube, which show highlights from the event for any who may have missed it. It's worth watching as there are a bunch of crazy crashes. No one could touch the Yaris.

Toyota should look into displaying one of their spare rally cars at some of the upcoming autoshows this year and early next year. Couldn't be a better time with the GRMN brand slowly launching and the Yaris GRMN being the first of many to come.

Really looking forward to the next leg of the competition, and good find with that compilation. And I don't know if you guys have heard but Toyota is apparently mulling the idea of a Corolla Cross, which is meant to be a more off road oriented model.

I was pretty surprised to hear about this too, and I really wish there wasn't so much focus across the industry on crossovers. It looks like thanks to the new tariffs imposed by the Trump administration that Ford has had to cancel the Active for U.S customers, so its surprising to see Toyota taking a similar approach.

Essentially what Trump is doing will bet a small set back for these companies as they take time to reevaluate their business models but over the long term we should see more interesting models.

Already we're seeing that take place, car makers have been creating more market specific products.
