Toyota’s GR badge is now on more models than ever. However, not all cars with the logo are created equal, as the automaker offers the less powerful GR Sport line on various offerings around the world. This badge adorns the hatch of the Agya on a new variant of the city car now available in Indonesia.
The Agya GR Sport differentiates itself from other model variants with unique exterior styling touches. The sedan features a new upper grille color, GR front bumper spoiler, 15-inch machined alloy wheels and LED headlights. Toyota offers the model with two two-tone paint options and four other color choices.
The automaker has also added a GR aero kit which further enhances the styling. Up front, the tailgate has sportier faux air intakes, while aero extensions adorn the bumpers and side sills.
Inside, the Agya has an 8.0-inch infotainment screen with a rear view camera. It also has wireless charging. Toyota embellishes the cabin with red stitching and GR branding throughout the cabin, including the steering wheel and seats. The stitching contrasts nicely with the otherwise all-black interior.
Toyota offers the Agya with just one engine option across the range – a 1.2-litre three-cylinder engine. The mill produces 87 horsepower and 83 pound-feet of torque and pairs with either a five-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission with paddle shifters. Although Toyota didn’t upgrade the Agya GR Sport’s powertrain, it did tune the suspension and change the steering setup.
Options available for the sporty hatch include a dash cam DVR system and a premium horn. The Agya also goes on sale with modern connectivity features such as find my car, roadside assistance, help desk access and more. It starts at 237,500,000 Indonesian rupiah ($15,366 at today’s exchange rate).
Toyota doesn’t offer the Agya in the US, so we won’t see the GR Sport variant here. The American automaker’s entry-level model is the Corollawhich now offers a powerful GR variant for the 2023 model year. It’s a lot more than $15,000but.
