AutonetMagz – With a sweet victory of Toyota WRC team in the opening session of WRC, Toyota Yaris WRC manage to get a good result for the brand and they are promise that they will apply all their research and technology on the WRC to be transferred to their cars and make it more fun to drive. For starts, the Yaris 2017 will become the rat lab.
Surely Toyota Global tends to be more serious in designing a more fun to drive cars, as they will introduced the Toyota Yaris Hot Hatch under the GRMN moniker, which stands for Gazoo Racing Masters of Nurburgring.
This new model will be introduced at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show and available only in 3 doors version with a maximum output of 205 hp or bigger than its rival such as Peugeot 208 GTi, Renault Clio RS, and Ford Fiesta ST.
But a more interesting things came from the output, as if all those three competitors apply a 1.6 liter turbo, Yaris Hot Hatch prefer to apply a 1.8 liter supercharger engine.
With a 1.8 liter supercharger and 205 hp, Autocar said that the car could accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds. Will it came to Indonesia? we doubt it.
