Toyota Yaris GR factory upgrade package


Toyota’s Kinto program has just released a package to improve the performance of the Yaris GR model. Changes were made to the drivetrain and chassis, and the three-cylinder turbo engine was moderately boosted.

Kinto is a separate entity within Toyota that deals with car sharing service, factory refresh of used cars and personalization of Toyota models. In the case of the Yaris GR, the package is currently only available in Japan, but it is not excluded that it will be extended to other markets.

The most significant change is the increase in maximum torque by 17Nm, to 387Nm in the range from 3200 to 4000 revolutions. The extra power is unleashed by recalibrating the ECU, and there’s the option to tune other systems, including throttle response mapping, front-to-rear torque distribution, and steering assistance tuning.

Based on the personal preferences of the vehicle owner and in consultation with him, Toyota will install one of 27 different settings. There is also an option to collect data through special driving training organized by the GR garage.

If the Yaris GR was purchased through the Kinto program, the torque increase is free, while private owners of this model will have to pay around 1000 EUR.
