Gazoo Racing expands their portfolio yet again with the unveiling of the Toyota C-HR GR Sport. But bad news enthusiasts, because this car is only available in JDM-spec variant and only sold in Japan. 

The GR Sport version of the funky crossover is based off the recently updated version of the C-HR.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-1685525140735-0'); });

So the C-HR GR Sport gets mechanical revisions of a new centre brace to boost body rigidity, muscled up coil springs, shock absorbers and stabilisers along with a modified steering feel for better direct response.

19-inch alloy wheels are exclusive to the GR Sport and a sporty body kit featuring a new front bumper, giant lower grille, a quad exhaust system with a scattering of emblems on the front and back.

On the inside, the performance division has replaced the standard steering wheel with a smaller one covered in leather and silver stitching that reminds the driver it’s a GR they are driving.

Body hugging front seats are unique to the C-HR GR Sport along with aluminium pedals and a GR-branded start / stop button.

2 variants are on offered with the C-HR GR Sport, a 1.2-litre Turbo engine paired with a 6-speed manual transmission and spicier 1.8-litre hybrid version paired with a CVT.

There isn’t a time in memory that doesn’t involve staring at cars. After discovering the excitement of watching Schumacher vs Hakkinen, Formula 1 became a major part of life. The love for cars and F1 ultimately led to a job with CAR Magazine. The untimely death of the magazine meant a hiatus from cars at lifestyle women’s magazine Marie Claire before another opportunity came knocking again.
