    In Europe at least, that doesn't come as standard, you have to spec the R Performance Pack to get the fancy rear diff that enables the drift mode.

        People pay $100k+ for an RS3 or AMG hatch. Crazy times.

          Haha oh the number of times you would crunch second as you try to smash the change to keep it in the supppper narrow gearing band.

          They were a heap of fun to drive though.

          These will sell - not sure why we are shitting on any company in 2021 building a non EV hot hatch. Good on them.

              Because that brings us to another great point. the Toyota GR Corolla will be cheaper than the Yaris. At least, worldwide. It remains to be seen what the Dutch price will be (CO2 slurp tax has to be tapped here), if the car comes to the Netherlands at all.

              In terms of price, you should roughly think of the Hyundai Veloster N or a Ford Focus ST. That would still be around 50 grand in the Netherlands, roughly the starting price of the GR Yaris.

                  So ... it took me a while to realise that someone hadn't rendered an image to look as though it were printed in a magazine ...
                  Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

                      +1 If it looks exactly like that and can be had for a discounted ~$46k D/A, I'll have to grab one. That bonnet vent gives me Evo9 vibes.

                        I think I prefer my Corollas not looking like they're wearing puffy pants ... but if they drive goodly I can probably get over the trying-really-hard appearances.

                          If I didn't have the yaris, I'd be keen on that.

                            Like it. Similar(ish) side profile lines to an STI hatch.
