UPDATE: GR Yaris now available to order, 160 cars allocated for the next 12 months

A lull in the storm of supply and demand has opened up a fresh allocation for Australian hopefuls looking to get their hands on a 2023 Toyota GR Yaris, the company has confirmed today.

As noted in our earlier coverage below: "In order to support the delivery of the first batch of GR Yaris, Toyota Australia made the decision to place a temporary pause on orders from July 1, 2021."

It's not all good news, with just 160 examples available to us for the next 12 months – but, on the bright side, pricing is unchanged.

That means buyers can order a standard GR Yaris from $49,500 and a GR Yaris Rallye from $54,500 – both before on-road costs.

Toyota adds: "The number of orders able to be taken by dealers will match their given allocation over the next 12 months".

"Customers are advised that not all dealers will have a vehicle available for order and that expressions of interest can be made for this in-demand vehicle."

In related no-news, Toyota has yet to confirm reports of an eight-speed automatic to join the GR Yaris range.

Likewise, the torque-boosting engine tune announced in August remains a Japan-only option.

July 2021: Toyota Australia suspends GR Yaris sales due to high demand


  • Around 1700 examples of the GR Yaris sold so far
  • Price increases haven't deterred buyers
  • No confirmation on when orders will resume

Toyota Australia has temporarily removed its GR Yaris from sale due to high demand, choosing to fulfil existing orders before taking any more bookings.

Since its launch in November 2020, Toyota has sold around 1700 units of the three-door pocket rocket, with 1100 of those coming before it had even arrived Down Under, exhausting Toyota's initial allocation.

The arrival of the uprated Rallye variant in April hasn't seemed to slow the base model's popularity – even an increase from the original base pricing of $39,950 drive-away to $49,500 RRP didn't deter potential buyers.

Vice president of sales, marketing and franchise operations for Toyota Australia, Sean Hanley, said the demand for the GR Yaris is a reflection of a desire in the market for vehicles like it and it has increased brand recognition for the Gazoo Racing arm.

"The GR Yaris is a fan favourite with enthusiasts and we are pleased that we have been able to ignite the performance-car market," said Hanley.

"This vehicle continues to exceed expectations and we look forward to continuing our momentum with the GR brand in Australia."

Featuring a 1.6-litre, turbocharged three-cylinder engine, the GR Yaris develops 200kW and 370Nm, putting power to the ground through a six-speed manual gearbox and all-wheel-drive system.

Improvements to the Rallye include front and rear limited slip differentials, a tweaked suspension setup, Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tyres as well a range of interior tech upgrades, justifying the $6000 price jump from the base GR Yaris.
