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!
How’s this for a hot hatch drag race line-up! Mat’s sat in the carwow Car of the Year 2021, the Toyota GR Yaris, and it’s going up against the MINI GP!
First up we have the GR Yaris, which is powered by a 1.6-litre 3 cylinder turbo engine to deliver 261hp 360Nm. As for the MINI GP? Well, it’s up on power, with a 2-litre 4 cylinder engine providing 306hp and 450Nm of torque!
However, power isn’t everything! The track’s pretty wet, and while the MINI is only front-wheel-drive, the GR Yaris is all-wheel-drive! Will that be enough to push Mat through to victory? Or will the manual gearbox in the Toyota ultimately lose out to the automatic MINI?
There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    • @Ryan Wilson Mini is for sassy people, Yaris GR is for tough guys

    • Good comparison, but if we track them all day long from 7 to 7 in one day, I doubt Mini can past lunch time without breakdown

  • When comparing two vehicles, we take as a reference two vehicles with the same displacement, power and above all both automatic or manual gearboxes.

  • MINI sounded the best, c’mon.

  • Did you think a lighter, more powerful and automatic Mini was gonna lose to the GR just because the GR has better aerodynamics, lol? It would be interesting to compare them around a racetrack, but in a straight, seriously?

  • 1.6 3 pot vs 2L 4pot. 4wd vs 2wd. It’s not really a great match up is it. Already ~40bhp between them on paper. Wait a few months until some proper remaps have been developed & see how the Toyota gets on running similar power to the Mini...

  • Toyota should be more fun... If you are ready to completely trash it on wet dirt road. Talking about weight 1300kg is not really light car. 260 HP not really all over the place for that weight. It's small but all crash test regulations and exhaust filters completely removed all fun from cars. Exhaust from pistons gets thru double blade turbo than huge mesh filter than pre catalyst than catalyst than they try to make noise in rear cooling exhaust muffler... Good luck with that. Only SHSHHSHSHS sound is left. Chassis have front collision at 64 kmh, offset collision, side collision, rear collision, 3 stage airbag( steering wheel looks like they installed one but from Kim Kardashian in the middle). Roof is so thick that car top heavy. Glass is thick. Fun nimble road legal cars are history.

  • It didn't really pick up any better did it - there's delay in the signal being given by one car and received in the other. Guaranteed if it was the other way around, the Mini would jump six inches first before mullering the Yaris.

  • A lighter car with less weight should be faster overall. However, in Australia the mini would cost around $80,000 new and we are told that the Yaris will have a starting price of just under $40,000. I will take the yaris over a pretend mini thanks.

  • La mayoría de las pruebas de aceleración que hacen son muy dudosas por las condiciones climatológicas que hay en su país, porqué los autos a la hora de acelerar pierden mucho tiempo porqué patinan demasiado que trae como consecuencia que los tiempos de aceleración se vean afectados asi como los resultados de las demás pruebas de aceleración y frenado; como sugerencia deberian de hacer todas sus pruebas en condiciones más estables y sobre todo en seco

  • Next time, run this modified GP against the modified GR - GP running 320 in this vid vs the GR 260. GP at 320 and GR at 320 will be a fair test, and one which we can all call the winner 😎 (spoiler alert - it wont be the BMW)
