Toyota GR Yaris vs Litchfield GR Yaris: DRAG RACE *results of a £640 tune*

…………………………………………………….

It’s time for a Toyota GR Yaris showdown! We’ve brought in the regular GR Yaris to take on a Litchfield-tuned GR Yaris.

We all know by now that the regular GR Yaris is powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine and that it’ll produce 261hp & 360Nm. However, the Litchfield edition has been fitted with a Piggyback ECU along with a special air filter, and as a result, it now produced 302hp & 390Nm!

So the tuned car seems like the clear favourite on paper, and when you consider it only cost £640 for the upgrade, we’re wondering whether a visit to Litchfield is the obvious choice for any GR Yaris owner?

There’s only one way to find out for sure – LET’S RACE!

Thanks to Litchfield for lending us their GR Yaris –

Hi Mat here: do you wish I'd stop going on about the GR Yaris. Or do you want more content on it?

I love the idea. Sure a lot of people would appreciate you testing the big youtubers tuned cars against stock versions, to see if the extra money was really worth it. Be a few downsides to it but would be interesting

These videos are so much better with sound off… Though watching Mat's unfortunate gear changing does take away from the visual experience.

From what I've seen here the tune isn't worth the money and loss of warranty.

So, £160 for every 1/10 of a second on a 1/4 mile. Is it worth it? Do you ever look at Dyno graphs to see the best time to shift?

Ridiculus tuning just for….loosing the validation of factory Garantee ! The performance seems only +10/12Hp but not even 1 horse more! Very bad effort and I' m suspecting to be fixed an extra chip case product like ''ChipTuning'' just connecting to the main c.b.u and giving pure tuning data

Mat Watson always raves about the cars a manufacturer lends him.
He is literally the worst reviewer about. Biased to say the least.

Without this channel I would not know of a Yaris or a GR Yaris. I don’t make a lot of use with this knowledge though. With all the money in the world – this car wouldn’t be in my garage.
