The compact, all pepper has high power and low weight (power to weight ratio of 4.9 kg / Hp, empty weight of 1,280 kg) with a platform and an engine completely new, new suspension, lightweight construction with elements made of carbon fiber (roof) and aluminium (bonnet, doors and tailgate), an aerodynamic and refined a new system of permanent all-wheel drive GR-Four.
The sporty look of the three-door is characterized by the roof lowered by 91 mm compared to the standard version, the solution that gives you a silhouette to the coupe, while the doors without the frame of the windows reinforce this image.

The performance of the car can also count on the new all-wheel drive system, the GR-Four, is simple and light, designed to optimize the driving force of each wheel.
The driver has a selector switch for mode of operation of the four drive wheels: Normal, with distribution of torque front/rear, 60:40; Sport, which moves the torque to the rear, with an allocation of 30:70; and Track, with a 50:50 for the driving on the circuits.
report then the new platform-specific, the mix between the GA-B front and GA-C rear, which allowed it to adopt a new design of the suspension (independent double wishbone at the rear, and schema MacPherson at the front) and the all-wheel drive system, the GR-Four.
Also, the braking system has been realized ad hoc in order to adapt to the performance the most exuberant of the car and has front discs grooved by 356 mm with four-piston calipers painted red.
For those in search of sensations still more sporty, the Toyota makes available, as an option, a Performance Pack that includes a Torsen differential limited slip both on the front axle, on both the front and rear suspension with adjustment even more sporty and alloy wheels-forged 18-inch with tires Michelin Pilot Sport 4s 225/40R18.
