2023 Toyota GR Corolla Review // DRAG RACE + LAP TIMES

The brand new Toyota GR Corolla Circuit Edition ($53,900 in Canada, $42,900 in the US) is here to make a bold all-wheel drive statement. It shares the same 1.6 L 3-cylinder turbo engine as the rally-homologated GR Yaris. But it has even more horsepower due to its improved exhaust backpressure. And is finally available for North American buyers.

On paper the GR Corolla looks unbelievably tantalizing. A 300 horsepower all-wheel drive turbo hot hatch, with dual-LSDs and a manual transmission. But will it live up to its mighty expectations? And will it be able to stand out against its ultra-competitive rivals in the hot hatch category? Thomas and James aim to find out! We hope you enjoy the episode. Thanks for watching! SUBSCRIBE!

A huge thank you to Toyota Canada and VW Canada for being game to make this test happen.
And to our Subaru owner for letting us feature his WRX STI!
