Toyota’s impressive new hot hatch, the Yaris GR, will cost £29,995 when it goes on sale in November .
The GR Yaris has been developed by Toyota Gazoo Racing and uses experience from the firm’s involvement in the World Rally Championship.
It’s powered by a turbocharged 1.6 litre petrol engine producing 257bhp.
That’s enough for a 0-62mph time of 5.5 seconds. All versions are four-wheel drive which, coupled with its light weight, should mean it handles beautifully.
UK customers will have the choice of two versions – GR Yaris and GR Yaris Circuit Pack – priced at £29,995 and £33,495 respectively.The latter comes with a limited slip diff on both axles, performance suspension and 18in alloy wheels.
