The Toyota GR Yaris is the latest vehicle that was subjected to the moose test by Km77, and it might just be the one to have aced it, after a long string of disappointments.

So, how did it do? Well, the hot hatch passed it with flying colors, with the best attempt being at 80 km/h (50 mph), 3 km/h (2 mph) more than the required minimum speed.

As the Spanish YouTube channel noted, the GR Yaris did not lose momentum as the driver swerved to avoid the cones and brought it back to the initial lane one second later, as the car handled the test like a pro.

Review: The Toyota GR Yaris Circuit Pack Is A Proper Rally Car For The Road

Presented over a year ago as the latest entry to the subcompact hot hatch segment, the GR Yaris is built on a custom platform that uses the front end of the GA-B architecture, which is shared with the regular Yaris, and the rear end of the GA-C, which is used in the automaker’s compact models. The implementation of all-wheel drive was thus possible, and the car also features exclusive suspension and uprated brakes.

The optional Circuit Pack, which was fitted to the car tested by Km77, adds a performance-tuned suspension, front and rear Torsen limited-slip differentials, and 18-inch forged wheels with 225/40 Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires.

The GR Yaris is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that puts out 257 HP (261 PS / 192 kW) and 266 lb-ft (360 Nm) of torque in Euro-spec, rocketing it to 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than 5.5 seconds and up to a 143 mph (230 km/h) top speed.

 


While Volkswagen is betting big on the ID.3 all-electric compact hatch, the venerable Golf is still going strong and several versions have received electrification, with the range topper being the all-new Golf GTE.

Urban Motors has tuned the hybrid hot hatch, giving it a new set of wheels, a lowering kit and a custom wrap. The GTE now rides on Barracuda Project 3.0 rims from the Ultralight Series that measure 8.5×20 inches, are shod in Continental Sport Contact 6 235/35 tires and sport a black milled finish with the spoke edges wrapped in blue, complementing the partial wrap applied to this car’s gray body.

The plug-in hybrid hot hatch has also been fitted with a lowering kit. Signed by KW, the coilover Variant 3 set has lowered the ride height by around 45 mm (1.8 in) at both ends and has allegedly improved the car’s handling.

The powertrain has remained stock, meaning that this Golf GTE is powered by a 1.4-liter turbo-four petrol engine rated at 147 HP, mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and a 112 HP electric motor, backed up by a 13 kWh battery. Total output stands at 242 HP and the car has a combined torque of 295 lb-ft (400 Nm), for a 0 to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) of 6.7 seconds and a 140 mph (225 km/h) top speed. In all-electric mode it has a driving range of around 37 miles (60 km), at speeds up to 81 mph (130 km/h).

日前 Toyota 傳出有意打造 Crown 休旅車,取代目前的旗艦轎車,車名方面預計會採用 Crown Kluger,日媒《Creative Trend》近日更掌握到這款全新休旅的專利設計圖,以及疑似從產線上流出的車身側面照。

日媒公布 Crown 休旅車的專利圖,與 Toyota 新 Highlander 幾乎相同。

根據日媒公布的專利圖來看,整體外形類似 Toyota 新一代 Highlander,但車頭 Logo 明顯是 Crown 車系經典標誌的造型,搭配上最新的家族化設計以及魚眼式頭燈組,下方則是垂直進氣口,車尾則與 Highlander 幾乎相同。

另外還有一張疑似產線流出的照片,據傳是 Crown Kluger 的車體,針對 Crown 的休旅車,預計會從現行專為中大型後驅房車所開發的 TNGA-N 底盤,改成 TNGA-K 平台打造,也就是和 Toyota Highlander 相同底盤。

動力系統方面,日媒預計會搭載 2.0 升渦輪引擎,擁有 245 匹最大馬力與 35.7 公斤米最大扭力,另外還有 2.5 升油電混合車型,具備 226 匹最大綜效馬力,最後則是 3.5 升 V6 油電混合動力,可繳出 359 匹綜效輸出。

日本經典房車 Crown 即將退出舞台,改為休旅車型。

已經來到第 15 代、銷售長達 65 年的 Crown 房車,因為房車市場遭 SUV 擠壓,銷售表現逐年下降,因此將轉型成休旅車,目前日媒推測 2022 年才會問世,而且除了亞洲市場之外,也會進軍北美,有望成為新的全球戰略車。
