Toyota GR Yaris vs Litchfield GR Yaris: DRAG RACE *results of a £640 tune*

ავტომობილები & ტრანსპორტი

Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s time for a Toyota GR Yaris showdown! We’ve brought in the regular GR Yaris to take on a Litchfield-tuned GR Yaris.
We all know by now that the regular GR Yaris is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and that it’ll produce 261hp & 360Nm. However, the Litchfield edition has been fitted with a Piggyback ECU along with a special air filter, and as a result, it now produced 302hp & 390Nm!
So the tuned car seems like the clear favourite on paper, and when you consider it only cost £640 for the upgrade, we’re wondering whether a visit to Litchfield is the obvious choice for any GR Yaris owner?
There’s only one way to find out for sure - LET’S RACE!
Thanks to Litchfield for lending us their GR Yaris -

    Compare it with a car that it is at a same category and price ,like the mini gp, how much money Toyota give to all of you to not compare it with a car that cost the same? Good marketing from Toyota, because if someone see the Toyota get destroyed by a car that cost the same, they don't buy this palstic scam

    What's the point of this car? Overpriced, unpractical hot hatch, it's quick because it's small and light. Interior looks old and cheap, gauges are low resolution. For the same money you can buy Civic type R, GTI, Megane RS, Focus RS, the list goes on..

    Practicality and interior are two things that are utterly unimportant in a performance car like this - if you want those you can but a Ford Focus, Audi A3, Honda Civic etc, but they are in no way comparable to a homologation special
