Toyota managed to take the world by surprise in 2020 by launching a fully bespoke, rallying homologation car that not only ticks all the right boxes for competition, but is also one of the best handling cars of the year.
But even with a bespoke 3dr body, AWD system and 3-cylinder turbo engine, the GR Yaris still has to be all things to all buyers, so the suspension is great but built to a budget, the engine powerful but still not all it could be.
And don’t get us started on WLTP regulations making sure there’s barely any exhaust sound.
So step forward legendary tuner Litchfield, who have developed an ECU tune that takes the GR Yaris to ‘over 300bhp’ and 383Nm of torque.
They’ve also developed a Nitron suspension replacement kit that not only ties the car down better in corners, it rides better and makes the car look better thanks to a 40mm drop.
To correct the sound issue, we’ve added a JCR Developments Titanium exhaust and your choice of alloy wheels.
The GR Yaris, but better. Get some tickets now!
