The 2022 Toyota Yaris GRMN has been revealed ahead of its official launch today at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

Photos from the set-up day show what is believed to be the 2022 Toyota Yaris GRMN alongside a rally version of the car.

Both vehicles are wearing GRMN display plates.



Snapchat user “Dino_Dalle_Cabonare” – contributing editor to enthusiast publication Speedhunters – published blurry photos of the limited-edition “GRMN” models, as well as other surprises.

It appears he may have been walking past – or driving past on a motorised buggy – when taking the images.

One of the GR Yaris models is sporting an exposed carbon fibre bonnet, but it is unclear if this is road-going part or designed for motorsport homologation.

A large rear wing – as seen in numerous spy photos – can also also be distinguished.

Overseas reports claim the 2022 Yaris GRMN is set to offer a 200kW/390Nm engine tune, new differentials, and carbon-fibre-reinforced parts.
