For fans of JDM (Japanese domestic market) cars, watching Best Motoring is almost like a ritual, as Best Motoring is perfect at capturing the essence of the quirky Japanese car culture.
For this particular episode of Best Motoring, six of Japan’s finest race drivers got behind the wheel of six B-segment hatchbacks, including the Nissan March, Suzuki Swift, Toyota Passo, Honda Fit, Fiat 500, and Volkswagen Polo.
Yes, you read that right. They are not racing high performance cars on the Tsukuba Circuit, but adorable, little hatchbacks that people drive around every day.
As with all Best Motoring track shootouts, the starting grid is in reverse order. The quickest car in qualifying will start last. In this case it was the Volkswagen Polo.
