    Small hot hatches in general are really the best fun cars you can buy for reasonable money. The GR Yaris is probably the pinnacle but really a Fiesta ST or Clio 200 with some mods are fantastic as well without being costly or you having to worry about them.

      K20 civics and swaps were the absolute peak of obtainable shitbox fun, especially when you could get them for $3k + some simple mods

        hondas have always been and will continue to be expensive in the used market due to autists. plus, cheaper civics are slow as shit.
        a clio rs 172/182/197 can be had for next to nothing and is fast enough as is, plus is 10 years newer so won't have holes in the floor.

        Yes. The GR Yaris is 70k in Australia, not that far off Supra money. Looks like an awesome car, but affordable is not in the chat.
        Same with civic type r

      People have been using that phrase since homologation specials have been around. Everyone knows rally cars are technically road legal and race on public roads, but the meaning of that phrase is clear and sensible to anyone capable of abstract thought (rare on DA)

      G16E is a frickload stronger than EJs were with their brittle pistons and the car drives better than any STi did. STis also have no problem starving the oil pan on sticky tires with right hand sweepers blowing the motor.

        Yeah you could get them with AWD and a manual. You could even get dealer installed turbo kits for them.

          Handbrake decouples the rear axle when used so you can keep the throttle planted on a handbrake turn. It works so well and hasn't gotten old yet.

            Some later evos also had this feature. Not really about keeping "the throttle planted", but it allows you to do a handbrake turn without having to declutch

            Ah cool
            I wasn't trying to compare a $50k road car to a $500k+ rally car, what OP means is a rally inspired/oriented performance variant. And some of these, like older Subarus or this current Yaris then only need a few changes to do just fine in rallye events.
            In case of the Suzuki you only have the two extremes: An AWD warm hatch and a full WRC rally car, but for others you also get a whole spectrum in between.

      They developed the engine for rally homologation because the engine in the road car has to be the same as in the race car.

        Well those go with a hybrid power unit. Couldn't they make a non-moronic version with a bigger, less explodey engine?

          Anonymous

          They were developing the engine before the rule changes in Rally1, now they run in Rally2 if I'm not mistaken, don't quote me on that. There's benefits to a 3 cylinder engine over a 4 cylinder of the same displacement, and it's been out for 4 years now and no one's reported anything serious issue apart from the valve springs.

          TL;DR they already had the engine developed but they changed the regulations so they released it anyways instead of spending more money on R&D for a new engine.

        Doesn't the actual rally Yaris have a 4 cylinder?

          Anonymous

          The Rally1 version is forced to use a 4, yeah. In Rally2 they get to use the 3 cylinder. Rally1 regs are kind of absurd, at least they're planning to ditch the hybrid.

        • 2 months ago
          Anonymous

          In Rally1, because everyone in Rally1 is supposed to use the same engine called the Global Race Engine, be it Hyundai or Toyota or Ford. It's a 1.6L direct injection turbo 4 cylinder. Toyota was developing the G16E before the new regulations dropped, so they wanted to go with a 1.6L direct injection turbo 3 cylinder instead. Their Rally2 car however DOES use the G16E because the rules allow for it.

      Nothing much changes, the number of cylinders has no effect on durability like you think it does. If you see the engine in person, the block is thick as can be. Its fine.

            AWD would ruin it. The whole point of little turbocharged hot hatches is they're a bit scrappy and you drive them on the front end, lift off oversteering and going round corners on three wheels. With AWD you'd get drivetrain losses, added weight and push-on understeer for a marginal gain in 0-60 and wet traction.

            Those are some good points. And I doubt I'd benefit much from AWD with the way I drive anyway, other than in snowy weather on long trips.
