Toyota Yaris GR - Chiptuning tested by Sport Auto
The Toyota Yaris GR is the powerful small car that excites the motorsport scene. With a 1.6-litre three-cylinder engine, "Gazoo Racing" (GR) brings the hot hatch to 261 hp at 360 Nm. The all-wheel drive and the power-to-weight ratio of 4.9 kilograms per horsepower give the small car a maximum speed of 230 km/h and enormous acceleration power. Toyota has thus created the first race-strong hot hatch, which motivates a multitude of racers and tuners to push the performance to the limit. In order to determine the most powerful tuning, Sport Auto subjected the tuned Yaris GR to a comparative test. The DTE engineers worked together with the in-house development department and the tuner 7mod to make the Toyota Yaris GR even more powerful than before. Already with the first performance upgrade, the DTE Toyota Yaris GR cracked the 300 hp mark, now the DTE Yaris GR impresses with even more hp power and performance.
In the big tuning comparison test, the editors were not only impressed by the appearance of the DTE 7mod Yaris, but also by the lap time of the sporty hot hatch: the DTE 7mod Yaris was the only candidate to break the two-minute mark. "7Mod has pushed the combination of an Eventuri intake and the DTE PowerControl box to perfection [...]. The revved-up three-cylinder [pushes and turns] around the course so energetically that it ends up at the top of our hit list - at 1.59.3 min, an incredible 4.5 seconds ahead of the production car," Sport Auto praises the modified Toyota Yaris GR. Furthermore, Sport Auto highlights: "[...] how finely the extra power weaves itself into the rev bands."
