Are you sure about the red?

Yep, absolutely. Black or Solid White. Funny observation, in most of the videos the presenters expresses surprise that the hood weighs so little.. what are they expecting, it's a small hood... note, I did not use the correct name for the hood...

Let me try this again.
I am disappointed by the lack of colour options but I don't really care.
It's just that I notice the lack of variety of colour when I look at cars in a car park. 95% are either white,silver, grey or black.
Oh, gotcha. Yeah, I do agree, that color options given by manufacturers these days is very limited. Fortunately for me, I do like white, as long as it's a pearl white.

Would be nice to see more colors like the nitro yellow they offer on the A90 Supra.

The steel hoods on my both my previous Yarii (sedan and hatch) were stupid light. But like you said, they were very small hoods.

I like that: the plural of Yaris.

At 4:52 this shows some kind of bodykit. Don't know what's up with it and if you are actually able to buy it but I really like the look of it. Especially the diffuser with the 4 exhaust pipes makes the car look even meaner.

It really squirts out of the corner when he gets it right. Seems to rotate pretty well.

What makes you think it rotates well? I didn't watch all of the track video, but the bits I did see look and sound like it understeers terribly.

Not the best option to test a rally based car on a race track. A closed uphill road or gravel would be a better option. There are other videos on gravel.

A rally based car? Let's be clear about this. It is a street car, plain and simple. The marketing department may frame it as something else, but it is designed to be a street car from the very beginning.
That being said, legitimate rally cars would rotate much better than what I saw in that video on the track.
