TRD Accessories for 2024 GR Yaris

Author: |

Toyota has introduced a wide array of TRD (Toyota Racing Development) accessories tailored for the 2024 GR Yaris in Japan, coinciding with the imminent commencement of local sales for the updated rally-inspired hot hatch. Among these TRD components are various accessories designed to enhance both the aerodynamics and visual appeal of the hot hatch.

At the forefront of the enhancements is a more prominent front splitter aimed at augmenting downforce over the front axle. Complementing this addition are distinctive side skirts and a bold new rear diffuser. Not only does the diffuser contribute to the car's aesthetics, but it also enhances downforce, although specific details regarding the degree of improvement haven't been disclosed by Toyota. Additionally, a newly developed rear lip spoiler and shrouds on the side windows have been introduced.

Further enhancing the GR Yaris's exterior are newly designed 18-inch forged aluminum rims featuring 15 silver and black spokes. Optional red and black stripes running along the car's sides provide a finishing touch to the updated exterior appearance. Several other enhancements have been incorporated, including new front and rear stabilizing dampers to refine handling, as well as upgraded GR brake pads for improved track performance without compromising street driving capability.

Interior customization options include a selection of carbon fiber accents, such as dashboard trims, air vents, and door handles, offering a sporty and premium feel. TRD has also introduced a carbon fiber license plate frame to further enhance the car's aesthetics.
