In partnership with Stereo. Download Stereo and join me for my next live show here: stereo.com/u/r21686FPvo0jZ21

My next show with Yianni will be at 18.30 GMT Tue 6th April.

In this video I wanted to see which was the easiest and most fun car to drive on a short technical circuit - rear-wheel-drive, front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive. So I lined up the new BMW M2 CS, Toyota GR Yaris and Ford Fiesta ST edition. And of course I also launched them to see how quick they are from 0-60mph and over the quarter mile.

This video perfectly explains the performance car segment from entry level Fiesta to sweet spot Yaris and to the beast of a bmw

So you are saying bang for the buck i could purchase 2 of the Toyota Yaris and have money left over for hookers and cocaine OR i could purchase a BMW M2 and beg my friend to let me bang his mum and drink cough syrup because i cannot afford a pint at the Pub ! Sign me up for the Yaris x2 !

This guy rather dies than saying something positive about a ford.... and comparing a fiesta and Yaris with an M2....🙈
Bradboy73 28 days ago
Hardly a fair comparison.... Money talks here. If the Fiesta had a map and over 300bhp, different ball game.
Zorkki 28 days ago
You could have at least got a Focus ST instead of a Fiesta ST to make it a more even fight, why you gotta do us Ford fanboys dirty like that :(

Prices in Greece : Yaris gr from 40k Fiesta st from 22k , bmw m2 from 100k.... the st is the best for its prize

Hello there Mat! Now that you have driven the GR4 for a while... how is the maintenance schedule? how often do you service your car? how much does it cost? Would really appreciate a video with a complete long term review about the GR4: how is it living with it? Servicing? Etc. Cheers!

I've been waiting to take my coffee to enjoy this video and seing the M2 take the sweet deserved revenge after you made fun of the old timer 328 vs the Yaris GR. Props again to the e36 328i btw to have been able to get a draw on the rolling race vs a car 20 years newer and with 50 hp more ;)

The fiesta goes well. It's just so ugly. I hate the upswept rear window deign and the headlights are an abomination imo.
pvtjoker73 3 months ago
The most telling part of the video, was that you had a permanent grin on your face whilst driving the Fiesta.

Hey look mat can you do a m240i review or track time? I know you are getting lots of comments and I am NOT saying I'm the most important comment 🙂 But I want to buy my car through carwow and I think you should listen to every comment. And I only want you to read and reply to this comment if you do the m240i review it is is less important. It would be appreciated 😊!

The ST is a good car, it's just so hideous to look at. The way the back windows slope upwards is dreadful which leaves a chunk of metal between the bottom of the window and the wheel arch.

How are you getting along with your RC car Mat? Nice to see you branching out for yourself with your own channel and having a bit of fun instead of just reviewing new cars to plug carwow. You need to get yourself a Traxxas Xmaxx 8s and the Felony 6s. 😉

Nice video as always. What's the mode you select on the timing gear for 0 to 60? Do you use the rolling one as your times are always better than the manufacturer quoted times ?

hey Matt! I just applied to a job posted by Car wow on LinkedIn. located in Madrid. just wanted to let you know im a big fan of both of your channels and working with you would be a pleasure. I love the automotive industry and I know how important and troublesome it is to buy a car and carwow actually makes people´s lives easier when it comes to the final choice.
