It's time for a Japanese hot hatch showdown!
Mat's in what many consider to be the king of Japanese hot hatches - the Honda Civic Type R! And given what it's packing under the bonnet, it's easy to see why it's regarded so highly, as its 2-litre turbocharged engine can put down 320hp & 400Nm!
The question is, how will it fair against one of the most hotly-anticipated hot hatches of 2020 - the new Toyota GR Yaris! It may be down on power, with a 1.6-litre turbo pumping out 261hp & 360Nm, however, it does have one major advantage over the Type R - it's all-wheel-drive!
What do you think - does the FWD Civic Type R stand a chance in these wet conditions? Or will the lighter GR Yaris race to victory? There's only one way to find out - LET'S RACE!

  • They need to make the Yaris GR engine an option in the Toyota 86.

  • Stock 2002 US model Subaru WRX’s we’re running high 13 second quarter mile times almost 20 years ago and cost 26k USD with tax out the door (sticker price). As of today’s date, the Yaris appears to cost close to 48k USD with tax. Clearly not available in US, but if it were, and as cool as I think it is, think I’d pass on it at that price tag.

  • Racing in real world conditions, dirty, wet, everyday streets where fwd with any kind of power just spins the front wheels. Try another test with winter roads and it would be no contest. Honda did better than I thought it would.

    to Gto G10 päivää sitten
    • It's a £34k AWD built from the ground up road legal rally car and they did the test in the wet, in the dry I think the results would be a bit different. The Yaris GR is a brilliant car and it's praise is well deserved but AWD will always beat FWD in drag races so comparing that is pretty pointless. What is interesting is that it's quite a bit slower around the Nurburgring than the CTR. The GR did it in 7 mins 56 seconds, the CTR did it in 7 mins 43 seconds... that's quite a big difference.

    • @T M i just told you that. With sign he didn't mean actually a sign. It was a metaphor for the grind you hear

      Παύλος ΣιδηρόπουλοςΠαύλος Σιδηρόπουλος6 päivää sitten
    • @Παύλος Σιδηρόπουλος I'm not trying to act tough with a hyundai lol. Hyundai hasn't updated the G4GC engine transmission since 2003. So it's very old for a 2010. What I'm confused about is why would the power steering light come on if he missed a gear? Never heard of that in any car.

      T MT M6 päivää sitten
    • @T M ahh ok I understand the problem. You didn't get the meaning of "sign". The guy with the comment with the phrase "it gives you a sign" meant that grind that practically warns you you are doing something wrong. And just because you asked only thing I have driven in my life is older manuals. Don't play the tough guy with a Hyundai. I have driven for the fields a Volkswagen Taro now last three years we got a ford ranger 2011 also driven sometimes an old mercedes "semi truck" and the not for work car a Volkswagen Passat 2004 I think maybe it was 2005. In Greece we only drive manuals my man.

    • @Παύλος Σιδηρόπουλος my 2010 Hyundai elantra is a 5 speed manual and if I miss a gear I just get a grind no warning signs saying my power steering failed wtf. Have you driven an older manual not the new ones that babysit you?
