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.

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.
