Video: Watch Toyota Rub Salt in the Wound by Showing Off Its GR Yaris

The grass may only seem greener on the other side of the fence, but when it comes to the GR Yaris—sold nearly everywhere but North America—we think it actually is.

Thankfully, a Gazoo Racing version of the Corolla hatch looks to be in the works, and it's destined for our shores. In the meantime, though, we'll be watching this video on repeat and thinking about what might have been.

Like what you're watching? We rely on your financial support. For as little as $3, you can support Grassroots Motorsports by becoming a Patron today.

Neat car but that camera work makes it unwatchable.

They are clearly using a steady cam mount but are intentionally moving the car in and out of frame. I realize this is to give a sense of speed and exhilaration but it comes off like bad crash zooms on a persons first youtube video

Ugh, it's small, light, nimble, playful and engaging. Everything lacking in the US market.

I thought this car was in the $40-$45,000 range. Did I read that wrong?  Awesome car but how much if they did send it?

In reply to Datsun310Guy :

Fine, fun cars under 3000lb are slim. Fun cars over 3000lb aren't really fun, they're merely using forward thrust to compensate.

Ah, the old Gunma Cycle Center. Do people still ride bicycles on that track or is it now used exclusively for filming cool car videos?
