Toyota set to re-open order books for GR Yaris

Toyota Australia will resume orders for its GR Yaris hot hatch on 10 November, with availability having been paused since 1 July 2021. The motorsport-derived model is expected to again generate huge demand.

An additional 160 vehicles have been secured for Australian customers, with the Japanese car maker again expecting them to be snapped up quickly.

“When we first launched the GR Yaris, we believed it would generate plenty of interest but even we were surprised at the phenomenal level of customer demand,” Toyota Australia VP of sales, marketing and franchise operations, Sean Hanley said.

“We have worked hard with our parent company in Japan over the past 12 months to secure these additional 160 vehicles,” he added.

“Together with the GR Supra, recently launched GR86 and forthcoming GR Corolla, we have the most exciting family of performance cars ever available in our line-up.”

The GR Yaris range will retain the same pricing as before, with the standard GR Yaris priced from $49,500 plus on-road costs, and the more track-focused GR Yaris Rallye priced from $54,500.

Along with the reintroduction of the GR Yaris to the Australian market, Toyota has made some minor specification changes, including broader access of external colour choices for the GR Yaris Rallye.

Glacier White, Tarmac Black and Feverish Red joins the existing Frosted White pearl finish, but the individual numbered build plaques that were fitted to the initial Rallye examples will no longer be applied.

Using experience and technology derived from motorsport, the GR Yaris delivers exhilarating performance from its 200kW/370Nm turbocharged 1.6-litre three-cylinder petrol engine and GR-FOUR all-wheel-drive system.

Alongside the GR Yaris, Toyota has announced that the long-awaited GR Supra manual will also be available from 10 November, marking the first time the performance coupe has been offered with a three-pedal option in its current generation.

The intelligent six-speed manual transmission offers smooth shifting and greater driver engagement; and starts from $87,000 plus on-roads for the GT – the same price as the automatic version – with the range-topping GTS priced from $97,000.

Both vehicles, along with the upcoming GR Corolla and the just-launched GR86, will be on display at the Repco Bathurst 1000 from October 6 to 10, giving motorsport fans the first chance to see the GR Corolla ahead of its Australian arrival in the first quarter of 2023.

Toyota Australia dealers are currently taking expressions of interest on GR Corolla, with 500 units secured for the first year of production. If you’re keen to own a new GR Yaris, or any of the other GR vehicles, and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
