Updated: Toyota centres host UK debut tour of new GR Yaris

Following the success of the initial ‘summer tour’ of Toyota retailers by the GR Yaris, our new thoroughbred performance hatchback, a host of additional dates have been revealed.

The interest shown in the car at the initial four dates in Guildford, Edgware Road, Woodford and Milton Keynes has prompted the tour to be expanded until October, with two cars being made available.

The displays give potential customers and those who have already reserved their car the chance to take a first close-up look at the model ‘in the metal’.

Each Toyota Centre is operating a personal appointment service, so everyone will have plenty of time to take in the detail and learn more from the specialist sales teams about the GR Yaris’s performance and equipment specifications.

The tour begins on 25 August and runs until October.

The cars are pre-production models and will be on static display only. Details of driving opportunities in production-ready cars will be announced at a future date.

    1. Hi Rodney,
      Thanks for getting in touch. We’re pleased that you’re a fan of the GR Yaris!
      The touring car is a pre-production prototype designed to give people a chance to see what they are ordering, and therefore it is not expected to be 100% perfect.
      We apologise for the condition and appreciate that this not an ideal situation, but we can assure you that the full production models will be of the high quality expected from Toyota.
      These are being produced at Toyota’s famous Motomachi factory by highly skilled Takumi technicians with a method of working that ensures both high rigidity and accuracy and exceptional craftsmanship.
      We hope you’ll love your GR Yaris when it arrives.
      Thanks.

  2. Hi guys, any further dates yet? My brother has ordered with Motorline (Bristol North) and was wondering when he could see the car?
    Thank You

  3. I signed up for email updates about the car, and I’ve preordered one, but I didn’t get any notification of this. Sad!

      Thanks for getting in touch. It’s great to hear you’ve got your own GR Yaris on the way!
      The GR Yaris Centre tour has currently only been promoted by the centres participating in the tour, meaning that you would only have received an email if you were on of the participating centre’s contact database.
      However, as more centres and dates are confirmed for the tour, notification of the locations should be emailed out to all those that have signed up to receive GR Yaris updates.
      To ensure you receive these emails as and when they are sent out, we are happy to check for you that your contact details are within our database. We will email you directly to discuss this further.
