Launched very recently in Malaysia is the rally-bred 2020 Toyota GR Yaris. It is probably the most exciting car of 2020. While previously Toyota has mentioned that the the number of Toyota GR Yaris in Malaysia is less than 200, the exact number is still unknown, at least until today.
The exact number is 127 units as confirmed by an Instagram post by Mutiara Motors - one of 5 GR Garage dealers allowed to sell the GR Yaris. Malaysia receives the highest allocation in the SEA region. Thailand only gets 71 units.
Powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder engine (261 PS @ 6,500 rpm, 360 Nm @ 3,000 - 4,600 rpm), the Toyota GR Yaris was designed to annihilate rally stages.
The Toyota GR Yaris features several driving modes. In Normal mode the torque split for the Toyota GR Yaris is 60:40 front to rear, in Sport the torque split is 30:70 while in Track mode, the torque split is a perfectly balanced 50:50 distribution.
If a manual hot hatch by Toyota has always been the stuff of your dreams, here is your chance to 1 out of 127.
