Step Up: Those who were laughing at Toyota Yaris will soon longer afford it after these changes

Once a joke among car fanatics, Toyota Yaris has stepped up not only proving critics wrong but also making sure that those who were laughing at it will no longer afford to buy it. The 2022 version will be competing among the likes of GTI leaving its peers like Ford Fiesta eating its dust. So in this article, we are going to review it.

Toyota hot hatch has a three-cylinder 1.6-liter turbocharged engine (257hp, 360Nm), all-wheel drive, Brembo brakes, BBS wheels, and a carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic roof. And it only comes with a manual gearbox. In other words, this is a car nut’s dream car made real.

Toyota also didn’t scrimp on the electronic nannies. The GR Yaris is equipped with active lane assist. Drive over a well-painted lane marker and the steering wheel will nudge you into the lane.

On the Safety

It certainly hasn't been left behind on the safety front, the Rallye, with six airbags, blind-spot monitoring, a head-up display and a reversing camera. The tech then steps up, with Toyota's Safety Sense system including AEB, intersection assistance, adaptive cruise control, lane trace assist and road-sign assist.
