Toyota GR Yaris v Mitsubishi Evo VI - DRAG RACE *Tommi Makinen Showdown*


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!
How’s this for an old school vs new school drag race!
We’ve got Mat in his all-new Toyota GR Yaris, and he’s going up against Yianni in the Mitsubishi Evo VI Tommi Makinen Edition! And even if there’s 20 years between these two competitors, they’re actually more closely matched than you may think…
First up we have the GR Yaris. Powered by a 1.6-litre 3-cylinder turbo petrol, it can produce 261hp and 360Nm, while it also comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox. As for the Evo VI? Well it has 2-litre 4-cylinder turbo petrol, which can produce 276hp and 373Nm! And of course, no surprise to hear that it’s a manual as well.
So they're pretty similar, right? What’s more, they’re both closely connected to legendary rally driver Tommi Makinen! While the Evo VI we have here is the Tommi Makinen edition (due to him previously winning the WRC in an Evo VI), he was also Team Principal for the Toyota Gazoo Racing, a rally team currently leading the WRC!
So what do you think - an easy win for the GR Yaris? Or will the classic Evo take it?

    Yianni has been overrevving, late shifting the TME. The moment you shift past 7k rpm on those 4G63Ts you will lose a lot of torque through the next gear. I reckon the TME would beat the GR with a proper driver

  • Edward Ching
    Edward Ching11 dager siden

    I don't see the need for such a race. Evo had it's glory but it's like almost 20 years old. Losing to the latest technology is nothing to shame for, but why insist to do it again and again until finding a way to win but damaging the clutch or gear box? On top of that, both machine prove themselves ON THE TRACK but not to do drag race like teens. Is it the way to enjoy or to drive a car with strong blood link to rally race? Guess not.

  • Daniel Long
    Daniel Long11 dager siden

    You're gonna want to launch the evo at 5400rpm or its gonna bog down. AWD turbo cars need that very hard aggressive launch or you're better just not trying and just gasing it.

    Making the comment before watching. If this Yaris doesnt just drag the evo I will be let down. This is coming from a guy who owns 2 evos. I mean one is a 25 year old car now.
