At a reported £36k plus it's not competition for the i20N it's much more a second car for those that can afford one or those that only need a car for pure fun. There are lots of people out there happy to buy a car like this judging by the way the GRMN sold out before release.Might go test drive one when its released....the temptation may to be too much to swap if it's that good. The i20n needs to step it up to be at least the 2nd best small hot hatch because this will clearly lead the pack.
Can you share where you saw it reported at £36K? I'm genuinely really into it but 36k would probably be a bit too steep for me. If it's priced in line with the i30N then i may be tempted.At a reported £36k plus it's not competition for the i20N it's much more a second car for those that can afford one or those that only need a car for pure fun.

I'd love one if I could make it work for us as a daily, light weight, a properly designed 4wd system with no drift mode gimmicks, good performance figures but not so outrageous your licence is at risk every time you let it off the leash but I expect it's size may rule it out sadly.
Okay, I heard whisperings of a 28K base price but I guess nobody really knows yet!I think it was Auto Express I can't recall now but it was an estimated price. Current Evo mag has a review of the GR and all they got from Toyota was 'it will be a competitive price TBC'. Considering the GRMN was £26,250 in 2018 and regarded as outrageously over priced at the time for a junior hot hatch, it will really depend on what Toyota view as the competition. If it's the Golf R/S3 or even 4wd mini JCW they start at £36k with no options. Maybe it's aimed at the now gone Audi S1 circa £32k which is closer in size but much lower specs as far as the 4wd system and brakes on the GR.
My hope is it's closer to £33k but then again I hoped the new Supra would be around my price range but it starts at £52k
Strictly speaking, they have to produce 25,000 in one year, but they don't have to sell that many. Though I doubt even Toyota have the cash to burn to do the former without planning on doing the latter.Exactly but that also means they have to sell at least 25.000 of it and hence it can’t be overly expensive.
Thanks for that. And agreed. Be interesting to see how the "watered down" version is priced here in Australia. I still probably wouldn't take one on - I don't have much of an ego, but having my arse handed to me on a plate by a Yaris...Quick wrap up about the price from that German video
JP: "tell me price"
GR: "not fixed yet"
JP: "under 50k?"
JP: "even under 40k?"
GR: "hmm *stuttering noise* we will see"
So I guess the price will be around 40k-45k.
And I don't think there will be much space for discount.
Too pricey in my opinion.
