recently, we knew the Toyota Yaris WRC, the racing car with which the japanese brand returned the World Championship of Rallies. And it seems to be that the good news does not come alone, because you also made clear the intention to create a Toyota Yaris a more sporty inspired by the WRC. Last month we showed a sketch of how it would be and now finally we can see in all its splendor.
This new vehicle will serve to give a face to all other models sports segment B, such as the Opel Corsa OPC that we tested recently. You will have the DNA team Toyota Gazoo Racing of the WRC and therefore expect great things from this model. Will be a new step between the range of the Yaris and the spectacular Yaris WRC competition. Intentions are not missing, as it arrives with a power of 210 HP.
As expected, this model of high performance is based solely on the three-door body. Still have not been given more details and we do not know its specifications, but the brand tells us that have carried out technical modifications to improve the ride comfort and the feel of driving. Seeing their rivals, you might expect a acceleration 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds.
In any case, we’ll have to wait to confirm. His debut is scheduled for the Geneva, which will take place from the 9th to the 19th of march. This Toyota Yaris of 210 HP descend along with the Yaris WRC that will be coming soon on the Rally Monte carlo. The arrival of the new version will also strengthen the Toyota Yaris Hybrid, which is currently cup 40% of sales of this model in Europe and over 50% in Spain.
