Now..moving on to the interior....

The car has frameless doors...huge frameless doors.

The dashboard is straight out of the standard Yaris.

Stepping in, you are greeted with a pretty old fashioned mechanical cluster. Some people do not like it and wants it to be a fancy digital one similar to what is found in the high spec standard Yaris. I like it...it is simple, straight forward...has a very functional feel to it. Took a while for me to figure out how to adjust its brightness as there is no scroll switch...

A little tag that only few cars can actually claim it and stand behind it as well..

Then there is the Button of Joy with a chucky gear lever...

The dashboard being straight out of the standard Yaris does not work out too well at times. The location of the USB port makes sense in the standard Yaris as there is a huge cubby hole to leave your phone and other connected devices. Obviously this isn't possible in the GR Yaris, which leads to the phone getting kept on a storage deck under the TV screen with the USB cable running in front of the AC controls and the phone sliding off at times. Alternative is toput the device behind the cup holders behind the hand brake, which leads to the cable running across the gear lever.

Its nice to see a manual hand brake in cars these days. This particular one has been setup for cornering by setting up the GR Four AWD's coupling system to fully open when the hand brake has been pulled. No...I have not tried it yet :D

Premium Sports seats which comes only with the RZ High Performance (and equivelant grades) with the red stiching and perforated dots.

The rear seat is not the most practical for passengers. My wife who is about 160cm easiy fits in the back with me driving. Its hard to expect an adult anything taller than 165cm to be able to comfortably sit back there on long journies.  A child seat can be fitted in the back but harnessing a baby or toddler in there would not be that easy. It works for my kids as they can buckle them up themselves


I hate the fact that only the front passenger side seat has a seat pull-out leaver to pull the seat forward in one go for the rear passengers to get out.

The speaker for the Active Sound Control..comes standard in the High Performance variant or with the upgraded audio system. There are two on top, one on top of each front passenger seat. It is to pipe in pseudo-fake engine noise. I say pseudo fake as the actual sound is induction noise that has been filtered and then piped in to the car. So it is not fully natural...nor is it fully fake. The exhaust tone is quite appaling so at least this keeps things interesting.

The trunk is good for week's grocey or a medium sized suitcase and a backpack.

Ha ha ha !!! 

May be an image of odometer and text that says 'TRACK Outside 12℃ 11:14 20 10 DistancetoEmpty 81km km Total Average 4.4km/ 7 80 60 40 8 000 min Hold OK toR toReset REAR ODO 11 49km km 20 XPITR'

Granted this was with just 50km. Now it does about 9 :) (better fuel than the Corolla Wagon ;) )

FOr now the only mods I thinking of is just the exhaust....the stock one sounds like ..wel..it doesn't sound like anything. Our Singer electric sewing machine sounds better. Do not like the TRD one and still waiting for other after maker options that are not too drastic.

Look at those frameless doors! *salivates*

What's the suspension like iRage? Does it have like adaptive suspension and stuff like that? I'm assuming they won't because the Rally car has to be simple to fix as well :)

No...just standard suspension. The RZ High Performance has stiffer coils and dampers than the RZ variant.
