Not on board the hype train? Do you count yourself among the uninformed who brush this off associating it with the familiar vanilla runabout? We have just the cure.
If you’re having trouble buying into the GR Yaris as among the most intriguing driving propositions arriving locally this year, Top Gear’s Chris Harris will change that for you. Watch:
Chris Harris drifts the Toyota GR Yaris
Crappy internet? Basically, you have three main things to look forward to here: 1) That immense 1.6-liter three-cylinder turbo with 257hp and 360Nm of torque, 2) magnificent grip, and 3) sliding around in a hatchback. If you can, find a stable connection and press play on the video above.
As Harris puts it on camera, “You know what? This brings out my inner Colin McRae.”
We already know how much it’s going to cost here, too, as TMP has already announced a P2,650,000 price tag. If the video above is an accurate depiction of what we can expect, it appears that every peso is going to be worth it.
So, tell us, are you looking forward to this hot hatch’s arrival or do you still require a little more convincing?
