If this thing comes in at $30k decently equipped, with 300 hp and AWD, I'll be impressed. At $35k+ I'd rather have the R for the nicer interior and better looking exterior, probably. Ford really knows how to make cars like this handle well though.
You're smoking crack, son.
If and when this does come to market, this will compete with the STi, R, and (soon to be dead) Evo. We're looking at a $35-40k price tag.
2017 is too far away
A used Corvette and a used GTI or something just seems way better to me than a $37k Yaris.
