Yaris WRC wins at Rally Sweden
After months of intensive testing, the all-new Yaris WRC rolled down the Monte Carlo start ramp in January ready for a gruelling rally calendar. The car proved its mettle with a superb victory for Jari-Matti Latvala at Rally Sweden this February, giving Toyota Gazoo Racing and the new Toyota Yaris WRC their first World Rally Championship win. The result also marked Toyota’s return to the top step of the podium for the first time since Rally China in 1999.
Under the body to get the adrenaline pumping is the all-new 1.6-litre turbo-charged, direct-injection engine that produces around 380hp and a chassis tuned through advanced simulation, testing and production techniques.
