Toyota announces the opening of pre-orders for its revamped GR Yaris. Presented a few days ago, the sports city car received numerous developments: even more aggressive front end, new rear light strip, more powerful engine, specific dashboard, new automatic transmission… The opening of pre-orders therefore means that the prices are known, with a (half) surprise in store.
The GR Yaris is now priced at €46,300 in its six-speed manual gearbox version. An increase of almost €10,000 compared to the previous version, which cost €37,400 in the Premium Pack finish (disappeared from the catalog) and €39,400 in the Track finish. The additional cost was to be expected due to the many changes, which make it even more efficient. But that’s not the only bad news. Due to its CO2 emissions displayed at 190 g/km (subject to approval), the GR Yaris suffers a significant ecological penalty, almost equal to its price. According to the 2024 grid, the tax is €45,990! That’s a total cost of €92,290, even before adding options…
The automatic transmission suffers the maximum penalty
This update also allows the bombinette to benefit for the first time from an eight-speed automatic transmission, for those allergic to the clutch pedal. This starts at €48,800, but… it is even more affected by the penalty! Its CO2 emissions are estimated at 210 g/km, which exceeds the threshold for triggering the maximum penalty: €60,000. And since the penalty is now uncapped even for the cheapest cars, the 280 hp Japanese city car well exceeds €100,000 including the tax. Its total cost reaches €108,800 excluding options.
Two options are available in the catalog: 18-inch forged Track rims offered at €2,500, and a Techno Pack (front and rear parking sensors, blind spot detector, rear traffic alert, premium JBL 8 high-speed audio system). speakers) who asks for €1,200. Five colors are available in the catalog, including the new Platinum Gray.
Toyota specifies that the French market is entitled to only 300 copies for these pre-orders. You will therefore have to act quickly, since these should go like hot cakes despite a top price! Deliveries to the lucky ones are planned before the end of 2024. For the moment, the prices for the Ogier and Rovanperä special editions are not yet known.
