Toy­ota Yaris GRMN

Ja­panese firm turns to Ga­zoo Rac­ing for its be­spoke hot hatch, but it comes at a price

Auto Express - - Road Tests -

THERE’S no skirt­ing around the sub­ject of the Yaris GRMN’S price, but that’s partly due to the im­pres­sive spec and the fact it’s lim­ited to a pro­duc­tion run of 400 cars for Europe – of which only 80 will make it to the UK. This in­evitably bumps up the cost of each model when com­pared with the Peu­geot, which is pro­duced in higher numbers.

Still, th­ese ve­hi­cles are about the thrills and in­volve­ment they de­liver from be­hind the wheel, as well as cater­ing for those need­ing ev­ery­day us­abil­ity rolled up into one en­ter­tain­ing pack­age. With sim­i­lar specs and an ap­proach that, up to now, only the 208 has re­ally of­fered, does the hot Yaris GRMN de­liver?
