WILL THE TOYOTA GR YARIS BEAT THE FORD FIESTA ST AND BMW M2 CS ON THE TRACK?

We have determined that the Toyota GR Yaris is a small and fast machine. We’ve seen other high-performance hot hatches in drag racing. Especially against the Honda Civic Type R on wet and dry surfaces.

Carwow’s Mat Watson uploaded a battle track between three different but similar cars to test it. The Toyota GR Yaris proves its track pedigree against the Ford Fiesta ST and the BMW M2 CS.

But before you watch the video, let’s write down the numbers here for the black and white comparison. Toyota GR Yaris is powered by a 1.6-liter three-pot engine that produces 257 horsepower (192 kilowatts). 266 pound-feet (360 Newton-meters) of torque. Pulls all the 2,822 pounds (1,280 kilograms) of weight. The number is sent to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual transmission.

The Ford Fiesta ST delivers 197 hp (147 kW) of power. And 214 lb-ft (290 Nm) of the 1.5-liter EcoBoost engine. It is sent to the front wheels via a 6 speed manual at this ratio of lap times. It weighs less than the Toyota GR Yaris at under 2,600 pounds.

The German competitor, the BMW M2 CS, is the most powerful with a 3.0-liter engine producing 444 hp (331 kW). And a 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) bend is sent to the rear wheels via a 7- speed dual-clutch gearbox. It’s significantly the heaviest, though, it weighs over 3,500 pounds.

It’s Japan versus America versus Germany for this video. You’ve seen the numbers. Now watch them fight on the track. AWD vs FWD vs RWD. Take your choice.
