GR Yaris too expensive? Here's a cheaper, track-focused Toyota Yaris Cup Car

Over the past couple of weeks, the Toyota GR Yaris stole much of the Internet’s limelight and rightfully so.

The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated heart of the 2019 Toyota Yaris is a familiar unit. The 2NR-FE engine is one that powers the Toyota Vios and has been in use since UMW Toyota gave the sedan an update in 2016. Back then, UMW claims that the new engine was an effort for better fuel efficiency, and the Yaris definitely proves itself to be a fuel sipping car. Mated to a CVT with seven sequential gears, the Yaris’ engine produces 107 PS and 140 Nm, 13 PS less than Honda Jazz.
