Some owners of Toyota’s new GR Yaris are surprised, as they pass their little car on the bench, that its engine produces more power than advertised.

In the automotive industry, it is not uncommon, when putting a car on the bench, to find that it develops less power than what is advertised by the manufacturer, even on new vehicles. Obviously, for the Toyota GR Yaris, this is not the case, since some videos show us that the small city car develops nearly fifteen more horsepower than what is announced.

First of all, remember that the new GR Yaris is the spiciest variant of the Yaris, and probably the most boosted city car on the market. Indeed, its small three-cylinder 1.6l displacement is announced at 261 horsepower and 360 Nm of torque, without the use of electricity. In parallel to this totally delirious engine, Toyota has equipped the little bomb with an all-wheel drive worthy of the last big overpowered sedans. In other words, the GR Yaris shoots a 0 to 100 km / h in 5.2 seconds, while being very fun to drive.

In this video, we can witness a passage to the dyno of the model, which, after testing, displays a power of 275 horsepower, 14 more than announced. The company behind this video takes the opportunity to recall that the tested model is original at all levels and that it runs at the 98.
