On paper, both the Toyota GR Yaris and the Honda Civic Type R are hot hatches of a similar price, at least in the UK, but the difference in size and powertrains make this comparison more of a conversation topic than anything else.

Perhaps choosing the much more expensive and exclusive Limited Edition of the Civic Type R for this comparison with the special Yaris isn’t the appropriate pick; that would be the base Type R, which starts from £32,820 in the UK and is pretty close to the £33,495 GR Yaris fitted with the desirable Circuit Pack.

Watch Also: Can The Toyota GR Yaris Keep Up With The Honda Civic Type R?

The Civic Type R has managed to set the standard when it comes to front-driven hot hatches, as it’s devastatingly fast on the track and manages to communicate with its driver in a clear way even during daily driving. It offers a level of sharpness and focus you usually find in sports cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 – and that’s perhaps the highest of praises.

The GR Yaris, on the other hand, comes from a different world, even if it’s still a hot hatch. The three-door body, with the lower center of gravity, increased rigidity and wider tracks, was purpose-built to homologate a WRC rally car (which unfortunately will never race), while the three-cylinder 1.6-liter engine was chosen to homologate the R5 rally car.

It also features Toyota’s first original all-wheel-drive system in 20 years, and one that’s actually sending most of its torque to the rear in Sport mode. What the GR Yaris lacks compared to the Civic Type R in outright sharpness, it compensates with its exceptional balance and grip when you start driving it harder.

In the end, picking between the two is always a matter of personal preference, but the GR Yaris feels the more special of the two.

 

 


Fiat has revised the 500 for 2021, making it bigger, more stylish and, more importantly, all-electric.

Looking like an evolution of its predecessor, the zero-emission small hatchback starts at just under £23,000 ($30,765) in the UK, excluding the £3,000 ($4,013) car grant for the version equipped with the 24 kWh battery that powers a 94 PS (93 HP / 70 kW) motor.

This model takes 9.5 seconds to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill, has a 135 km/h (84 mph) top speed, and can travel for 185 km (115 miles) on a single charge on the WLTP cycle. Fiat also offers a 42 kWh battery option with a 120 PS (118 HP / 87 kW) electric motor which shaves half a second from the acceleration time and has a top speed of 150 km/h (93 mph) as well as a 299-320-km (186-199-mile) range.

Comparison: New Fiat 500e Vs. Honda E – Which Small, Trendy EV Would You Rather Have?

Despite the premium flair, some of the materials used inside feel quite cheap. On the plus side, you will find plenty of storage spaces, actual buttons for the HVAC controls rather than having to fiddle with the infotainment system to adjust the temperature, and a digital instrument cluster. The rear seats are pretty cramped, but boot space is a tad larger than the Honda e’s. However, the rear seats do not fold flat, leaving quite a big step that makes loading cargo a bit more difficult.

Due to its small footprint, light steering and reduced turning radius, the new 500 is very easy to drive around town and maneuver in and out of tight parking spaces, yet pulling out can be more difficult due to the thick rear pillars that obstruct the visibility.

Since the car is notably heavier than before, the suspension is also stiffer, and this makes driving on B roads a rather unpleasant experience. It doesn’t feel as nimble as the old 500 either and there’s noticeable tire noise.

These were only some of the aspects pointed out in the first drive reviews of the 2021 500. For the rest, you will have to watch the videos down below.
