The Take-Five Review: Toyota Yaris GRMN 2018

Tue 13th Mar 2018

It’s a Yaris, but like we’ve never seen before. The small and sweet engine of the Toyota mini has been supercharged with a 209bhp engine, a Torsen differential and much more.

The GRMN pays tribute to Gazoo Racing Meisters of Nurburging, the team behind the rally-winning Yaris WRC.

If you want to own a brand new one, you’ll be expected pay in the region of £26,295, which seems a bit steep for a Yaris on steroids, but what do the critics think? says: ‘Outrageous as Toyota’s pricing strategy is, we’d understand the logic of anybody who shells out. In fact, we’d applaud it.’ says: ‘In short, it’s a lot of fun on challenging roads, with a distinctive and old-school charm.’ says: ‘It’s expensive, yes, but the Yaris GRMN is a proper little hot hatchback to drive, with enthusiast appeal by the bucket load.’ says: ‘An endearing effort with much to appeal to the enthusiast driver. Flawed, yes, and undoubtedly expensive, it’s still a promising start’ says: ‘The Yaris GRMN reminds us what hot hatches used to be about – unfussy, uncomplicated machines.’
