    So it would be a GR Yaris GRMN, to go alongside the Yaris GRMN? The GRGRMN. Are Toyota OK?

    I wonder how much better this car is going to be compared to the GR.

    With better I mean, power, handling maybe a new 2x2 RWD setting?

    Here's how the GR Yaris compares to some other hot hatches on a wet track:

    Dropped off my work ute. One is owned by a salesman, the other is prepped for a customer.

    I really like that bi-tone Coral color.

    TOM'S Racing body kit for the GR Yaris, all it needs is a Castrol livery :cool:

    This afternoon I went to a local Toyota dealer to look at a standard Yaris to find out how a GR Yaris would look like. I really hope that the GR Yaris looks much better IRL than a standard Yaris. If not this car is not a car that I would be interested in. Eye candy is as much important to me as the driving experience and a standard Yaris is lacking big time at the eye candy department.
    Supringely I find the interior to be a nice and good looking but simple interior. A nice place to be in.

    Other than the chopped top, another difference is the front bumper. That really transforms the front from the standard car. I've seen three so far, at the same dealership. Trust, it's all that and then some.

    Everything except for the lights and mirrors has been changed so it should look quite a bit different from the regular one! unit-one's photos above really show just how much is different between the 2.

    The front-end is beautiful and makes it a different car but the rear-end though is too similar to call it a beautiful car. Granted the driving experience is what counts but I like my cars to look very good as well.

    Agreed...

    Yet, for some very weird reason, I really like how the GR is able to end so mean and purposed built, despite having practically an identical ugly rear end....

    I am almost forgiving its ugliness for its performance....
