the gr yaris is no hot hatch this is a genuine rally car for the road the engine is only a three-cylinder turbo petrol but it’s the most powerful one in the world right now and it’s crammed full of motorsport technology but it’s strong and then there’s the brakes the brake pedal has immense feel it’s so good and they are powerful but what really sets this rally yaris apart is its four-wheel drive system and the way it works with the rest of the chassis to pin the car to the road that short wheelbase those wide tracks those sticky michelin tires i reckon he could drive around the outside of a bmw m3 on any roundabout it’s that grippy unless of course you put it in sport mode which tells it not to be accelerate and even better when you yank the handbrake it disconnects the rear axle so you can do proper rally style handbrakes you know what this brings out my inner colin mcrae flick it around [Laughter] that is ridiculous
