Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
Mat has got his hands on yet ANOTHER car… But we have to say, this might be the most exciting one yet!
That’s right, his new long-termer is the carwow Car of the Year 2021, the Toyota GR Yaris! After reviewing it last year, Mat pretty much fell in love with it on the spot - so he just had to get one in for a few months!
Now we know he loved it when he got his hands on it to review, but that was only for one day! So how will he find it when he’s living with it as a daily driver? Will the love hold strong? Or will he miss his RS6 or A45 S?
You'll have to keep watching as he takes you through what he loves, likes and hates with the new GR Yaris!

    • Omg I so love this car. I'm so tempted to buy one for myself but finding it really hard to convince my wife since I've already got two cars for myself (s-type and cayenne s). I'm sure she'll come around after a test drive though 🤭. Oh and I love your videos by the way (although I don't necessarily agree with all your comments) 🙂 I turn to your reviews for genuine advice on specific cars after watching the silly Top Gear episodes.
