THE hot version of the Toyota Yaris will be priced from under £30,000 when it arrives later in the year.

Powered by a new 257bhp 1.6-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine, it is expected to deliver 0-62mph acceleration in less than 5.5 seconds.

The GR Yaris will be priced from £29,995 or £33,495 for models fitted with a so-called circuit pack.
