It’s time for a Japanese hot hatch showdown!
Mat’s in what many consider to be the king of Japanese hot hatches – the Honda Civic Type R! And given what it’s packing under the bonnet, it’s easy to see why it’s regarded so highly, as its 2-litre turbocharged engine can put down 320hp & 400Nm!
The question is, how will it fair against one of the most hotly-anticipated hot hatches of 2020 – the new Toyota GR Yaris! It may be down on power, with a 1.6-litre turbo pumping out 261hp & 360Nm, however, it does have one major advantage over the Type R – it’s all-wheel-drive!
What do you think – does the FWD Civic Type R stand a chance in these wet conditions? Or will the lighter GR Yaris race to victory? There’s only one way to find out – LET’S RACE!
