a few have complained about missing features that the EU model has

Out of interest, what features are missing compared to the EU model? I have seen lack of heated seats as a option mentioned in a few places & never understand why companies do this as it's not exactly tropical in the UK in winter.

I wonder if it is to do with weight and emissions? Even on the standard Yaris hybrid, if you get the glass roof you loose out on a spare tyre 😕

Lots of manufactures don't offer the cold pack in the uk

 

I can't find the thread atm, a lot of people order the GR go for the Circuit pack

 

Yes that's It, it's the "Convenience Pack" that is missing - the euro ones get heated seats and the intercooler spray too

Saw one in my local dealer the other day. A very small car. Not my thing. Not sure if they do 4 door models as this was a 2 door. Liked the styling but probably very expensive. I'd go and buy the Corolla Touring Sports as like Hybrid/Auto.

What I would like is a Hybrid hot hatch. Lexus RX 450h engine in a tiny Toyota!

Is the new GR engine a Toyota engine or from another manufacturer?

Was due to test drive one today but obviously now in Tier 4 so that isn't happening.

The engine has been designed & built by Toyota and is unique to the Yaris GR. It sits on a 4WD platform that has been designed for World Rallying & pushes out approx 260 bhp. Nothing like this has been around for a long time & with many manufactures throwing all of their money in to electric car development, I take my hat off to Toyota for having the balls to design, develop & build a car like this that won't have been cheap to produce.

I am a whisker away from pulling the trigger on ordering one :thumbup:

This is a pure Toyota by all means and best car of 2020 from all car categories. There is no one negative review or complain, and when you see the journalists driving it you can tell it’s true what they are saying, it is so much of a fun they just can’t hide their smile. This is probably the only car that I can buy without even seen it in person and I don’t care what colour is, they are all great. It’s amazing car, a reborn legend, very much look like evo x even under the bonnet. Very sensible priced too. I would buy this car over anything else that’s called a sport car. £30k WRC car. 
Happy new year to all 🚗👍

Have to agree with this ^^ 

It’s great to see that despite a focus on Hybrids over the last 20yrs, Toyota still has the knack to build a fantastic AWD rally special (albeit with a bit of support from Gazoo). 
 

I bet it’s immense to drive!

Here is why people are buying Yaris GR, snow driving is the most excited and relaxed driving experience you can ever get, all you need is car ready for it, and snow 🚗❄️👌
