The understeer is not surprising - Track version is so much better. Best version would be Rear wheel only. Waiting fof the rallye / track version but not at $60,000

The Yaris is a very nice piece of kit, but I suspect that some of the hyperbole written in comparisons to other hot hatches had a lot of "one night stand" infatuation about it.

Now that journos have had a chance to see it in the cold light of day I don't think there is a much depth there as you get with other hot hatches. There is only so long fond nostalgia for AWD homologation specials that hark back to 90s can last ...

Easy come easy go, at least with automotive journalism. The next best thing is right around the corner. Never content with what's here but the need and desire for what's coming. That's simply how it works in the automotive industry and especially with indirect manufacturer paid journalists.

When you have to live with one everyday, things change vastly from the original hype..:)

I had a test drive in the type R before I bought my N. What put me off were not only the challenging looks and the fact you had to delve into the infotainment screen to change the heating and ventilation controls, but the killer for me was the constant exhaust drone. Very wearing.
With the N though, select normal mode and you can take your grandma out in it.
