New Toyota GR Takes On Honda Civic Type R in Thrilling Drag Race

Get ready for a Japanese hot hatch showdown!

There is nothing quite like watching two metal bodies racing at their top performance to be the first to cross a set finish line. It is thrilling, exciting, and bound to have you on the edge of your seat, so it is easy to understand how YouTube channel carwow has been so incredibly successful.

In this video, carwow wrote, "It's time for a Japanese hot hatch showdown!" The hot hatches in question are the Honda Civic Type R and the Toyota Yaris GR. The former has been a leading force on the roads since its release; however, it now has a new competitor that is challenging it in every aspect. Having the cars to play with, Mat Watson from carwow naturally wanted to see how the two fair against one another in a track showdown. 

In wet conditions, the two cars go head-to-head in a quarter-mile drag race. We won't tell you the details, but know that it was a very, very close match. Who do you think won? There is only one way to find out!
