Neither of these threedoors is that practical, but Yaris beats 208 by one litre (VDA), with its 286-litre boot. Chunky front seats and small body mean it’s more cramped than the GTI in rear.
It’s a shame the range of adjustment for the Toyota’s wheel isn’t greater; it compromises the driving position ever so slightly. Those sporty bucket seats hug you in the bends, but you sit a little too high. However, along with the seats the GRMN gets lots of standard kit, so sat-nav, DAB, Bluetooth, climate control and a reversing camera are included. The Peugeot matches it, though.
