Yaris GRMN embarrasses a Renault Clio RS

There are plenty of automakers who are attempting to mirror what Toyota has accomplished with the GRMN Yaris, but most of them are coming up short. Cars.co.za recently set out to see how the new Renault Clio RS compared in the 1/4 mile and the results speak for themselves.

While I do really like the looks of this Clio, I knew that it was going to have a tough time against the GRMN. These cars aren't really meant for drag racing however, and I would have preferred to see how they compared on some hot laps.

I don't think there is another compact hot hatch that can directly compete with the Yaris. When Gazoo racing gets hold of a vehicle, they usually set a pretty tough benchmark to follow.

Until we see another compact hot hatch that has a supercharger, I doubt think that's going to change. I believe Fiat had an Abarth 695 Ferrari edition that was supercharged.

The Ford Fiesta if offered as a 2 door could have been a direct rival but very soon it'll be on its way out according to Ford, not happy about that choice.

The Fiesta ST 3 door would probably be a much better candidate. Cant help but think that Ford was just starting to hit their stride with that and the new Focus.

Haven't seen sales stats for myself but when catering to the masses who are not enthusiasts, the priority goes to them.
Its unfortunately, we'll be left with just a few options once all is said and done with the new era of Ford.
