A bit funny bit in video, how rear view mirror was turned sideways, to at least partially fix reduced visibility . Still, car seems enjoyable when pushed beyond available grip.

A refreshing reversal of the movement towards electric parking brakes, then. Not something you'd expect a manufacturer to bother about on a production car - hard to imagine it's a vital part of the homologation process.

They actually went out of their way to do it on the GR - the regular Yaris has an electric one!
