My new Toyota GR Yaris daily driver: what I love and don't love about it!


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!
Mat has got his hands on yet ANOTHER car… But we have to say, this might be the most exciting one yet!
That’s right, his new long-termer is the carwow Car of the Year 2021, the Toyota GR Yaris! After reviewing it last year, Mat pretty much fell in love with it on the spot - so he just had to get one in for a few months!
Now we know he loved it when he got his hands on it to review, but that was only for one day! So how will he find it when he’s living with it as a daily driver? Will the love hold strong? Or will he miss his RS6 or A45 S?
You'll have to keep watching as he takes you through what he loves, likes and hates with the new GR Yaris!

    i drove the car and i have to say that i really like car except one that is very important for me is safety and this car is C Builded causing for the driver less view around when you are driving, for example is not a car that you would get use to drive in one day, it for more than a second for me to look around for example and i feel sorry for toyota because i really like the car ,actually i had the yaris old model and its still a great car to drive

    Seeing such a good car with the steering wheel on the right side is like seeing a beautiful, stunning woman, only to watch her walk away, limping and using a cane. Yes, when it comes to the position of the steering wheel, right side is the wrong side. There, I said it.
