Toyota has good news for the European customers who don’t have chances to welcome home the limited-edition Toyota Yaris GRMN. The Japanese car maker has revealed the Yaris GR Sport.

Of course, it cannot reach the similar level of performance like the limited edition but it is still a hot hatch from Toyota. The 5-door hatchback will make its debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show on Oct 2 before hitting European dealerships sometime at the end of the year.

The Toyota Yaris GR Sport 2019 is supposed to be an apprentice of the GRMN with the suspension improved thanks to attempts to work on the mechanical focus. Toyota also works wonders by replacing the standard hollow piece by a firmer anti-roll bar. Upgrades include the Sachs Performance shocks as well. These result in a lower ground clearance (0.43  inches or 11 millimeters)

The changes in its suspension pave a way for a more aggressive look.

The Yaris Sport 2019 runs on a set of 17-inch wheels that are covered by sporty Brifgestone Potenza RE50 tires. It puts on a black coat over the top besides the rear spoiler painted black as well.

To make sure everything goes in harmony, the car maker decided to scatter black elements onto other parts as well. Those are the foglight surrounds, mirror caps, grille, and door moldings that all comes in a layer of piano black trim. Car buyer can opt for the choice of red decals to pop up under the grille and above the rear bumper.

The interior of the Toyota Yaris breathes the airs of sporty atmosphere with sport-styled seats in the white Ultrasuede and black combination. Lighting up the look are the satin chrome trim and a black headliner. It is the 3-spoke steering wheel on the Toyota 86 that we can witness its appearance here on the Yaris GR Sport.

According to the latest car news, the Toyota Yaris GR Sport 2019 comes equipped with a 1.5L hybrid 4-cylinder engine instead of picking the same 1.8L supercharged 4-cylinder like the GRMN.
