The folks over at Best Car are reporting that we could see a more potent version of the Toyota GR Yaris as a 2024 model and we are not complaining.
They claim that sources close to Toyota have mentioned that the little 1.6-litre turbocharged engine will be massaged up to 300 hp with the torque figure coming in at 370 Nm (272 lb-ft).
If the source is indeed accurate then the updated GR Yaris will also be getting a freshly developed eight-speed automatic transmission. This is not all that surprising to be fair as we did see a prototype of it back in March last year.
The styling will be slightly updated with some new bumpers and possibly a larger rear spoiler and the interior will likely come direct from the GR Corolla.
Production is reportedly slated to commence at the beginning of next year.
