Pricing has been confirmed for two newly introduced Toyota Yaris models — Y20 and GR Sport – in a revised line-up for 2019.

There have been a few tweaks here and there to specification on the regular Yaris models, but nothing spectacular. The Yaris also remains the only supermini currently on sale that is available with a hybrid powertrain.

Yaris Y20

Introduced to celebrate 20 years since the Yaris was first launched, the Y20 trim brings a high level of specification to the hatch and badging to mark the occasion. Standard-fit items include a bi-tone paint finish, rear privacy glass, 16-inch alloy wheels and Toyota’s Touch 2 infotainment system.

There will also be an exclusive gold-painted variant, mimicking the launch colour of the original Yaris, with 100 units earmarked for the UK.

   

A choice of four powertrains are on offer for the Yaris Y20 —namely 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre petrol units paired up to a manual gearbox. The latter is also available with a CVT automatic. Alternatively, there’s also a 1.5-litre petrol-electric hybrid setup on offer. Pricing for the Toyota Yaris Y20 starts at £17,465.

Yaris GR Sport

Those looking for a racier edge can opt for the Yaris GR Sport, which draws inspiration from last year’s limited-run GRMN hot hatch — and even uses some mechanical items from that machine.

Suspension upgrades lifted from the GRMN come in the form of Sachs Performance shock absorbers, while an anti-roll bar has been fitted at the front of the car to improve rigidity. It also sits a centimetre closer to the ground than the standard Yaris.

Black 17-inch cast alloy wheels are wrapped in Bridgestone Potenza RE50 tyres for improved grip. Other aesthetic changes include black painted trim pieces on the car’s exterior, along with an optional red decal set and model-specific headlights. Inside the car, GR-branded sports seats feature along with a steering wheel lifted from the Toyota GT86.

The GR Sport is available exclusively with the 1.5-litre hybrid powertrain, developing 100hp and 111Nm of torque — resulting in a 0-60mph time of 11.8 seconds and a 103mph top speed. Now on sale, the Toyota Yaris GR Sport is available from £19,835.
