00:00:00,160 –> 00:00:17,920
[Music]

2
00:00:14,920 –> 00:00:17,920
ready

3
00:00:19,070 –> 00:00:28,240
[Music]

4
00:00:25,920 –> 00:00:30,880
okay so let’s bring the toyota yaris

5
00:00:28,240 –> 00:00:33,280
cross out for a drive

6
00:00:30,880 –> 00:00:34,399
again this is my first time driving this

7
00:00:33,280 –> 00:00:37,680
car

8
00:00:34,399 –> 00:00:41,520
so i’m not sure what to expect

9
00:00:37,680 –> 00:00:44,320
but just my first impression okay

10
00:00:41,520 –> 00:00:46,640
i didn’t adjust this seat that much

11
00:00:44,320 –> 00:00:50,000
because i mean i’m comfortable in this

12
00:00:46,640 –> 00:00:53,440
driving position and

13
00:00:50,000 –> 00:00:55,760
i have to say that it feels taller than

14
00:00:53,440 –> 00:00:57,840
i expected it also feels bigger than i

15
00:00:55,760 –> 00:00:59,840
expected

16
00:00:57,840 –> 00:01:01,440
because this car is based on a yaris

17
00:00:59,840 –> 00:01:03,199
right so

18
00:01:01,440 –> 00:01:04,879
yaris is not it’s not a big car it’s a

19
00:01:03,199 –> 00:01:08,400
small hatchback

20
00:01:04,879 –> 00:01:10,000
how much bigger can it get uh if you

21
00:01:08,400 –> 00:01:12,240
base something on the irs

22
00:01:10,000 –> 00:01:14,000
right so yeah that was what i had in

23
00:01:12,240 –> 00:01:15,520
mind and yeah this car feels bigger and

24
00:01:14,000 –> 00:01:17,759
taller than

25
00:01:15,520 –> 00:01:19,360
they actually is as in from the outside

26
00:01:17,759 –> 00:01:21,759
it doesn’t look that big

27
00:01:19,360 –> 00:01:23,520
or that tall but inside yeah i feel like

28
00:01:21,759 –> 00:01:26,560
it’s quite

29
00:01:23,520 –> 00:01:28,159
i know for sure that i’m in an suv okay

30
00:01:26,560 –> 00:01:30,079
[Music]

31
00:01:28,159 –> 00:01:32,479
and let me just bring the car out on the

32
00:01:30,079 –> 00:01:35,680
road and we can take a look at

33
00:01:32,479 –> 00:01:37,920
how how it drives how it feels and all

34
00:01:35,680 –> 00:01:40,240
that

35
00:01:37,920 –> 00:01:41,119
okay so first of all steering is very

36
00:01:40,240 –> 00:01:43,200
light

37
00:01:41,119 –> 00:01:44,960
okay it’s really very light very easy

38
00:01:43,200 –> 00:01:47,119
for you to drive

39
00:01:44,960 –> 00:01:48,079
this car around actually maneuvering

40
00:01:47,119 –> 00:01:50,079
this car overall

41
00:01:48,079 –> 00:01:52,000
i have to say it’s actually quite easy

42
00:01:50,079 –> 00:01:54,560
because the windows are all

43
00:01:52,000 –> 00:01:55,520
quite i won’t say they’re super big but

44
00:01:54,560 –> 00:01:58,079
they are

45
00:01:55,520 –> 00:01:59,520
big enough and because the this car has

46
00:01:58,079 –> 00:02:01,920
the front and rear

47
00:01:59,520 –> 00:02:04,399
parking sensors with the like

48
00:02:01,920 –> 00:02:06,159
demarcation of how close or how far you

49
00:02:04,399 –> 00:02:08,560
are to the objects around you

50
00:02:06,159 –> 00:02:10,160
so that’s very useful and you know even

51
00:02:08,560 –> 00:02:12,800
a beginner can jump into this car and

52
00:02:10,160 –> 00:02:14,330
drive off no problem

53
00:02:12,800 –> 00:02:16,239
so yeah steering is very light

54
00:02:14,330 –> 00:02:19,760
[Music]

55
00:02:16,239 –> 00:02:22,800
wow engine very responsive

56
00:02:19,760 –> 00:02:24,210
very very responsive for 1.5 liter three

57
00:02:22,800 –> 00:02:32,610
cylinder

58
00:02:24,210 –> 00:02:32,610
[Music]

59
00:02:32,720 –> 00:02:36,480
okay the lane departure warning works

60
00:02:34,720 –> 00:02:38,500
because i was like slightly

61
00:02:36,480 –> 00:02:43,200
outside the line so it started beeping

62
00:02:38,500 –> 00:02:46,000
[Music]

63
00:02:43,200 –> 00:02:46,000
suspension

64
00:02:47,040 –> 00:02:52,080
compliant okay it’s comfortable

65
00:02:50,160 –> 00:02:53,760
it doesn’t feel stiff like you know like

66
00:02:52,080 –> 00:02:55,599
a honda vessel

67
00:02:53,760 –> 00:02:57,120
yeah it doesn’t feel like that okay this

68
00:02:55,599 –> 00:03:01,200
is uh

69
00:02:57,120 –> 00:03:04,000
compliant now my question is how do i

70
00:03:01,200 –> 00:03:07,360
ensure that the

71
00:03:04,000 –> 00:03:10,560
parking collision system

72
00:03:07,360 –> 00:03:14,000
works because

73
00:03:10,560 –> 00:03:15,680
uh i wanted to test it but the car in

74
00:03:14,000 –> 00:03:16,319
front of me is a rolls-royce just to

75
00:03:15,680 –> 00:03:20,319
show you that

76
00:03:16,319 –> 00:03:33,840
there really is a rolls royce

77
00:03:20,319 –> 00:03:33,840
in front of me okay

78
00:03:34,400 –> 00:03:37,519
okay i didn’t feel the car breaking for

79
00:03:36,159 –> 00:03:41,120
me he just chimed

80
00:03:37,519 –> 00:03:44,239
i’m gonna try the collision assistance

81
00:03:41,120 –> 00:03:47,840
this time on an ester martin

82
00:03:44,239 –> 00:03:47,840
okay so

83
00:03:53,840 –> 00:03:59,360
okay i i don’t know whether

84
00:03:57,760 –> 00:04:00,959
the car i don’t think the car break for

85
00:03:59,360 –> 00:04:02,799
me i think it just

86
00:04:00,959 –> 00:04:04,400
beeped okay it didn’t break because i

87
00:04:02,799 –> 00:04:05,840
didn’t feel it breaking i had to break

88
00:04:04,400 –> 00:04:08,799
myself

89
00:04:05,840 –> 00:04:10,879
so um i need to stop testing this system

90
00:04:08,799 –> 00:04:12,560
on expensive cars

91
00:04:10,879 –> 00:04:15,439
yeah pick up for this car is actually

92
00:04:12,560 –> 00:04:17,140
quite good i’ll have to give it that

93
00:04:15,439 –> 00:04:18,639
it’s very good

94
00:04:17,140 –> 00:04:21,680
[Music]

95
00:04:18,639 –> 00:04:23,680
for a small three-cylinder engine it’s

96
00:04:21,680 –> 00:04:25,199
bigger than i expected it’s taller than

97
00:04:23,680 –> 00:04:27,600
i expected

98
00:04:25,199 –> 00:04:28,400
or power is adequate even though it’s a

99
00:04:27,600 –> 00:04:30,960
small engine

100
00:04:28,400 –> 00:04:33,280
if you think you know small engine then

101
00:04:30,960 –> 00:04:35,600
you will be

102
00:04:33,280 –> 00:04:36,639
straining the car you do hear the

103
00:04:35,600 –> 00:04:38,720
engine’s training but

104
00:04:36,639 –> 00:04:40,160
you know power is there when you need it

105
00:04:38,720 –> 00:04:42,400
of course right now i’m alone in the car

106
00:04:40,160 –> 00:04:43,759
so of course the car can pull easily

107
00:04:42,400 –> 00:04:46,320
now i want to point out that this car

108
00:04:43,759 –> 00:04:47,199
also rides on the tnga platform okay

109
00:04:46,320 –> 00:04:49,840
toyota

110
00:04:47,199 –> 00:04:50,800
new global architecture platform which

111
00:04:49,840 –> 00:04:54,080
you know

112
00:04:50,800 –> 00:04:55,280
just looking at the details of this tnj

113
00:04:54,080 –> 00:04:58,000
platform

114
00:04:55,280 –> 00:05:00,160
they kind of like promise better

115
00:04:58,000 –> 00:05:02,960
handling cars more fuel efficient cars

116
00:05:00,160 –> 00:05:06,000
more user-friendly cars stuff like that

117
00:05:02,960 –> 00:05:09,120
and i can say that for this car you do

118
00:05:06,000 –> 00:05:12,400
feel a bit of difference

119
00:05:09,120 –> 00:05:16,160
as compared to a regular

120
00:05:12,400 –> 00:05:19,120
toyota suv or toyota crossover

121
00:05:16,160 –> 00:05:20,400
okay because this is not a dull car to

122
00:05:19,120 –> 00:05:22,560
drive

123
00:05:20,400 –> 00:05:24,880
there’s a bit more character in the car

124
00:05:22,560 –> 00:05:27,440
rides over bumps better

125
00:05:24,880 –> 00:05:28,400
it’s not dull to drive okay it’s

126
00:05:27,440 –> 00:05:30,240
actually

127
00:05:28,400 –> 00:05:31,840
of course it is not a sports car okay

128
00:05:30,240 –> 00:05:35,520
this is not a grease

129
00:05:31,840 –> 00:05:39,039
but it’s relatively

130
00:05:35,520 –> 00:05:42,240
um satisfying to drive

131
00:05:39,039 –> 00:05:44,000
yeah and body roll in the corners

132
00:05:42,240 –> 00:05:45,840
yeah i couldn’t even i couldn’t even

133
00:05:44,000 –> 00:05:47,440
feel it of course i wasn’t going like

134
00:05:45,840 –> 00:05:48,720
super fast or anything but

135
00:05:47,440 –> 00:05:50,960
yeah i couldn’t really feel the body

136
00:05:48,720 –> 00:05:54,240
roll as well so

137
00:05:50,960 –> 00:05:55,360
you know tng good job um this is not the

138
00:05:54,240 –> 00:05:58,400
first tnga car

139
00:05:55,360 –> 00:06:00,479
i’ve driven of course but yeah just uh

140
00:05:58,400 –> 00:06:04,080
tnga cars right now

141
00:06:00,479 –> 00:06:06,479
they feel better than previous toyotas

142
00:06:04,080 –> 00:06:08,319
uh riding on the older platform so

143
00:06:06,479 –> 00:06:11,440
overall what are my thoughts on this

144
00:06:08,319 –> 00:06:14,560
toyota yaris cross um first of all

145
00:06:11,440 –> 00:06:15,520
i like the way it looks pricing i really

146
00:06:14,560 –> 00:06:19,199
i have no idea

147
00:06:15,520 –> 00:06:20,240
i’m guessing around 110 120 but now cohe

148
00:06:19,199 –> 00:06:21,680
just increased so

149
00:06:20,240 –> 00:06:24,080
maybe slightly higher than that i’m not

150
00:06:21,680 –> 00:06:27,199
sure it feels taller and bigger than

151
00:06:24,080 –> 00:06:28,800
it actually is which it’s

152
00:06:27,199 –> 00:06:30,560
this is quite personal okay to some

153
00:06:28,800 –> 00:06:31,120
people that’s a good thing some people

154
00:06:30,560 –> 00:06:33,759
it’s not

155
00:06:31,120 –> 00:06:35,039
okay this one is very personal for me i

156
00:06:33,759 –> 00:06:36,319
like it okay

157
00:06:35,039 –> 00:06:38,080
because i feel like i’m getting a bit

158
00:06:36,319 –> 00:06:41,440
more car when i when i

159
00:06:38,080 –> 00:06:42,560
get this car okay um power is adequate

160
00:06:41,440 –> 00:06:44,319
always adequate

161
00:06:42,560 –> 00:06:46,639
infotainment and everything is very very

162
00:06:44,319 –> 00:06:48,080
easy to use it’s very straightforward

163
00:06:46,639 –> 00:06:50,080
right now after driving i’m getting

164
00:06:48,080 –> 00:06:52,240
about 15.3

165
00:06:50,080 –> 00:06:54,479
kilometers per liter okay after driving

166
00:06:52,240 –> 00:06:54,479
around

167
00:06:57,919 –> 00:07:03,120
what i dislike about the car

168
00:07:01,199 –> 00:07:04,639
i think there’s only one thing which is

169
00:07:03,120 –> 00:07:07,919
probably the choice of

170
00:07:04,639 –> 00:07:09,039
materials that toyota chose to use in

171
00:07:07,919 –> 00:07:11,919
this car

172
00:07:09,039 –> 00:07:13,680
because you see right now um even if you

173
00:07:11,919 –> 00:07:15,440
look at the new avante or you look at

174
00:07:13,680 –> 00:07:18,000
the new kias

175
00:07:15,440 –> 00:07:19,680
or mazda you know mazda is like kind of

176
00:07:18,000 –> 00:07:20,720
like the japanese benchmark right now

177
00:07:19,680 –> 00:07:22,479
for interiors

178
00:07:20,720 –> 00:07:24,000
they are their interiors are getting

179
00:07:22,479 –> 00:07:26,160
very very

180
00:07:24,000 –> 00:07:27,680
nice okay they actually you can tell

181
00:07:26,160 –> 00:07:29,360
that they are putting more and more

182
00:07:27,680 –> 00:07:31,919
effort into making the interior

183
00:07:29,360 –> 00:07:33,280
a more comfortable place to be more

184
00:07:31,919 –> 00:07:35,919
satisfying to look at

185
00:07:33,280 –> 00:07:38,000
um toyota you can tell they are a bit

186
00:07:35,919 –> 00:07:41,280
still a bit more conservative with their

187
00:07:38,000 –> 00:07:44,000
design and materials and whatnot okay so

188
00:07:41,280 –> 00:07:46,319
this car um yeah it still feels very

189
00:07:44,000 –> 00:07:49,599
toyota in the sense that the materials

190
00:07:46,319 –> 00:07:51,840
that they choose to use and all that um

191
00:07:49,599 –> 00:07:53,680
so if for people who are very particular

192
00:07:51,840 –> 00:07:56,800
about interior

193
00:07:53,680 –> 00:07:59,520
uh this may not be that attractive

194
00:07:56,800 –> 00:08:00,800
okay but in every other aspect this car

195
00:07:59,520 –> 00:08:03,280
actually performs quite well

196
00:08:00,800 –> 00:08:04,000
in terms of practicality in terms of

197
00:08:03,280 –> 00:08:07,280
driving

198
00:08:04,000 –> 00:08:08,879
fuel efficiency compliance yeah so

199
00:08:07,280 –> 00:08:10,319
though that’s probably the only thing

200
00:08:08,879 –> 00:08:13,280
that um if

201
00:08:10,319 –> 00:08:14,240
you know i had to point out i would say

202
00:08:13,280 –> 00:08:16,720
the choice of uh

203
00:08:14,240 –> 00:08:18,479
interior materials could be a bit better

204
00:08:16,720 –> 00:08:21,520
just to make this car

205
00:08:18,479 –> 00:08:23,360
that more competitive in in the segment

206
00:08:21,520 –> 00:08:25,759
okay compared to your other

207
00:08:23,360 –> 00:08:26,720
rivals from other japanese car makers

208
00:08:25,759 –> 00:08:28,160
but other than that

209
00:08:26,720 –> 00:08:30,080
you know it’s a toyota it’s gonna be

210
00:08:28,160 –> 00:08:31,599
reliable

211
00:08:30,080 –> 00:08:32,959
um every year like i mentioned every

212
00:08:31,599 –> 00:08:33,839
other aspect this car actually performs

213
00:08:32,959 –> 00:08:36,240
quite well

214
00:08:33,839 –> 00:08:37,200
you know it’s a satisfying car to drive

215
00:08:36,240 –> 00:08:40,800

217
00:08:40,800 –> 00:08:43,839
