The Toyota Yaris GR is outclassed by this affordable Lexus

Nine points as a report, not many test cars get that on Autovisie. The new Toyota Yaris GR managed to impress again at the Jarama circuit. Yet the little Japanese can be outdone by the affordable Lexus model.

If you want to drive a new Lexus for as little money as possible, then you’ll end up with the Lexus LBX. However, this special edition will be very cheap.

Toyota Yaris GR-compatible

The Toyota Yaris GR also cannot be compared to the regular Yaris in terms of price. However, for less than 60 grand (price in 2021) you get it best driving car of 2021. In terms of power, Yaris is surpassed by Lexus LBX Morizo​​​​​​

That Lexus has like for Toyota 1.6 liter turbocharged cylinder. In the LBX, the power source produces 305 hp and 400 Nm of torque, 44 hp and 10 Nm more than in the Yaris.

The engine in the Lexus is also mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and power is distributed to all four wheels.

Whether this Lexus LBX is more fun to drive than the Toyota remains to be seen. The brand still doesn’t know much about the suspension and chassis settings.
