Toyota GR Yaris Selected as One of the World's Best Performance Cars


In a move that will certainly increase its street cred even more, the Toyota GR Yaris has been selected as one of the Top Three finalists for the World Performance Car of the Year 2021, beating the BMW M2 CS and X5 M / X6 M in the process.

The just-confirmed-for-the-Philippines hot hatch finds itself in good company since it’ll be competing against the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Audi RS Q8.

The 93-member panel made of automotive journalists across the world also announced the Top Three finalists for the most coveted award: The World Car of the Year. Here, the jury selected the Honda-e, Toyota Yaris (the GR Yaris’s “ordinary counterpart”), and the Volkswagen ID.4.

When it comes to the World Urban Car of the Year, the Top Three are the Honda-e, Honda Jazz/Fit, and the Toyota Yaris, while for World Luxury Car of the Year, the Top Three are the Land Rover Defender, Mercedes-Benz S-Class, and the Polestar 2.

Finally, for the World Car Design of the Year, the Top Three finalists are the Honda-e, Land Rover Defender, and the Mazda MX-30.

The World Car of the Year will be announced on April 20, 2021.
