Toyota Yaris GRMN Can Be Yours For €29,900



Frankfurt’s annual motor show is where enthusiasts go to see the best cars, concepts, and debuts. This year, Toyota has decided to reveal the final specifications for its Yaris GMRN hot hatch at the show. An abbreviation for Gazoo Racing Masters of the Nurburgring, fans have come to expect exceptional performance from models wearing the GMRN and they won’t be disappoint with the Yaris model.

Powered by a 1.8-liter supercharged inline-four engine that was rumored to exceed 205 hp, we now have word from CarScoops that the actual number sits at 209 – 212 on the metric scale. Combined with 184 lb-ft of torque sent to the front wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential, the hot hatch can sprint to 62 mph in around 6.3 seconds and hit a top speed of 143 mph.

Toyota claims the Yaris GRMN has “the best power-to-weight ratio in its class,” and we believe them. The whole car weighs in at just 2,502 lbs, which is impressively light for that much power.

Then there’s the beefier anti-roll bars, bespoke Sachs dampers, 275mm brake discs with 17-inch alloy wheels, and the suspension sits 24mm lower than your standard Yaris.

Though all this won’t come cheap as the Yaris GMRN has a quoted market-dependent sticker price of €29,900. But we’re sure Toyota won’t have any problems offloading all 400 vehicles in Europe. When a model’s production is capped in the three digits, buyers aren’t usually too bothered with high prices.

Seems like it's priced too high just by the specs alone. Even the Fiesta ST costs only $22,015 and it's only lacking 3 hp compared to the Toyota Yaris GRMN.

I was wrong to assume that people would hold back based on its price. Car And Driver says "All units were spoken for well before the end of the reservation period despite a mandatory down payment of about $1200." So even if you want one now, it's too late to get your name on the list.

Just look at how people respond to the Fiesta ST and Focus RS, now Toyota is coming on the scene, so its very natural for all models to be called for unless it was set to be mass produced.

Such a shame that Toyota is producing so few units of a popular model, those in the UK will have to fight over a scat 100 vehicles.

Its just to test the market. They have enough money to produce a lot of these, lose money on every single one and still not lose much of their overall cashflow, but smart moves always pay off. We will just have to look out for what they willl do next.

Well, if people can't get the yaris grmn and still want to stick with the Toyota badge there's always the toyota 86. I think it's even faster than the Yaris, perhaps even the fastest model Toyota offers in Europe.
