Toyota’s glorious GR Yaris has already proven to be well-equipped for racing tracks and rally stages, and the clear comfort in a number of settings extends to one of the most difficult and specific situations ever developed: the moose test.
The famous moose test, a high-speed turn out of the way of an oncoming threat and back to the driver’s original lane, is designed to test both the car’s stability and high-speed turn functions in a relatively common crisis situation. A safe car will pass the test without losing control or rolling over; a sharp car will go through without losing peace at all.
KM77.com regularly drives performance cars through the moose test. A few months ago, they managed to get GR Supra through the test at 48 mph (which converts to the titular 77 kmh) after some trial and error. It was a car built for performance from scratch, and clearing the bar at 48 km / h still took the driver.
The GR Yaris, which the group tested earlier this month, came through the test at 50 mph. It did more impressively while maintaining complete tranquility. The driver still took several attempts, and failed in his first race at 48 km / h, but they eventually became comfortable with the car to run a little faster and still get in a beaten cone to complete successfully.
The difference in speed may not look impressive, but the ability of a car like the GR Yaris, based on a subcompact commuter, to remain stable under such extreme conditions is really rare. Unfortunately, it will be even more rare in the US, where Toyota still does not seem to have any future plans for the GR Yaris. It may be more exciting than the new Supra, but American drivers will not get Toyota̵
