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