Obviously, Toyota wants Bottle that GR Yaris magic And sell them in as many permutations as possible.According to reports, the engine and drivetrain package inspired by the rally will enter the larger Corolla as a more mature and robust competitor Honda Civic Type R.
We are waiting with bated breath to see what the hot hatch will look like, so the resident Photoshop wizard Theophilus Chin made a few renderings of GR Corolla, which is a good job.The result is a fairly delicious-looking machine that adds a threat to an already aggressive appearance Five-door base.
The front end from the recently announced GR 86, With a huge downward-sloping lower grille and vertical corner air intakes.There is also a fairly large Subaru WRXType hood scoop, although don’t expect the actual car to have it, because GR Yaris is also not sporty-the latter’s G16E-GTS 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, which Corolla may share, has a front intercooler.
Move to the side and you can see GR Yaris’ beautiful eight-spoke alloy. They are installed in the exquisite flared fender, which is consistent with the rumor that the GR version will be 20 mm wider than the stock Corolla. A large rear diffuser with dual circular exhaust pipes, another design clue from GR Yaris, can be found at the rear, flanked by a pair of (probably fake, unfortunately) bumper vents .
The real GR Corolla should have enough firepower to prove the juicy aesthetic prosperity-the GR Yaris engine produces 272 PS and 370 Nm of torque in Japan (other markets, including Malaysia, Get slightly lower output of 261 PS and 360 Nm).
Sadly, the larger, heavier Corolla is not expected to gain more power-the mill is already very tight-so it may be at a significant disadvantage compared to the Civic Type R. It is hoped that Yaris’s all-wheel drive system can transmit up to 70% of the torque to the rear wheels, which is enough to make up for the difference. The six-speed manual gearbox should be the only gearbox provided.
