The all new Toyota Yaris Cross is a compact crossover that fits just below C-HR in brand’s lineup. For adding more excitement, Toyota is launching a sporty GR version into the range viz. the Yaris Cross GR Sport. Pre-sales will start in the third quarter of this year, although no details regarding price are available.
The GR Sport version will offer some slight performance upgrades, whereas GR and GRMN models have more significant tuning. So, don’t underestimate this Yaris Cross.
