Jeremy Clarkson chose the best car of 2021


Former Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson chose the best car of 2021 at the Motor Awards organized by The Times and Sunday Times. According to the shocking presenter, the hot hatch Toyota GR Yaris became the main discovery of this year. The organizers of the award opted for the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossover.

According to Jeremy Clarkson, the original Toyota GR Yaris did not impress him with anything. The ex-Top Gear presenter believed the hot hatch would be ideal for “newly widowed old women who need a car to travel with their girlfriends to the bridge club.” However, after a personal test drive, the showman’s opinion changed dramatically. The expert was impressed by the balance of the chassis, as well as the handling of the model, regardless of the road surface.

The Motor Awards, in which experts chose the best car of 2021, was organized by the British editions The Times and the Sunday Times. Unlike Clarkson, the jury recognized the Ford Mustang Mach-E electric crossover as the best model. Among other cars, the expert committee noted Land Rover Defender, Hyundai Ioniq 5, as well as Opel Corsa and Tesla Model 3. Lotus became the best manufacturer in the opinion of the British. As for the Toyota GR Yaris, the jury awarded the model first place in the Best Hot Hatch category.

Toyota GR Yaris was presented in January of this year. The “charged” hatchback was equipped with a 1.6-liter turbo engine with a capacity of 272 horsepower and 360 Nm. Together with the unit, the model received a six-speed “mechanics” and an all-wheel drive GR-FOUR transmission with a multi-plate clutch in the rear axle and two Torsen differentials. The hot hatch accelerates to “hundreds” in 5.5 seconds. The maximum speed is 230 kilometers per hour.
