    DaveGordon:

    Looks-wise, the Mini wins hands down. Seems like the Yaris is a great drive though.

    power and speed might be frustrating on the Ring but perfect place to test the chassis, specially if it slippery and rainy

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    I'm considering this and the Abarth 595C to replace my daily drive. Will depend on what the lease company says about it

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Congrats Pentium on your purchase! Mine doesn’t come till April/May. In Australia the only ones being delivered now is the base model without the circuit pack (to be called Rallye in Australia). But you can’t even order the base car in Australia now as Toyota has closed the order book for now until they secure more cars from Japan for second half of next year. The first 1000 cars sold out in one week which Toyota expected to take 12-18 months. Toyota Australia then  offered another 100 at $5k more which also sold out quickly. We like small fast cars!

    I am 100% with you on this one. There are better alternatives out there.

    I had a GP2 as a daily too at one point. Having driven the Yaris it’s not compatible between the two! Yaris is a waaaay faster car. More civilised too and ride nicely. 


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    I wonder if the production is capped at 20k? Seems like they might sell that number quickly.

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    They were originally going to build 25k cars to meet the homologation requirements. But Covid meant that Toyota couldn’t test this new car much so they are retaining the old car for the 21 season. There is a rule change in 2022 so they can’t use this Yaris anymore. Therefore, there is no longer a requirement to sell 25k of the GR Yaris so they may well curtail production if they lose money on them. This is just me speculating. I have no insight at all. 


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    Thank you guys. The car had zero km; maybe it was schedule to be a Demo car but I moved quickly smiley

    Last Friday they were 25 cars available for delivery online. All with the Performance Pack. Monday they were only 7 left. Red was the minority color, which incidentally makes me very happy.

    Today they are only 5 left.

    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    We have a 5 month waiting list but demo's available and German market also has a lot available right away. I think after the buzz quiets down a bit, supply will be more than sufficient.

    I am still tempted, the Yaris GR reminds me so much of my Lancia Delta HF Integrale time...when I was younger. Smiley

    Yes I agree Christian. Do it! What’s the lease like over there on them?


    Re: Toyota Yaris GR

    WAY:

    Yes I agree Christian. Do it! What’s the lease like over there on them?

    370 EUR monthly incl. tax, 48 months, 10k km per year, no down payment but dealer would be willing to accept 350 (not much of a difference though). Problem is: This car would be driven by me only (wife and daughter do not drive stick, son is a big question mark but this car would be too fast for a beginner anyway) and we just don't have enough room in the garage (four cars inside, one car outside). Tough decision. If this car had DCT, I would have already signed the contract. Smiley

    Leave it outside. That’s where my M2 comp and the family car S4 wagon sits these days! Not every car needs to be garaged.
