Default New Toyota Yaris smell of burning rubber during testdrive!?

I testdrove a new Toyota Yaris year 2015, petrol, non-hybrid, 1,3 L with automatic gear, which I consider buying.

During the testdrive, sudddenly, smell of burnt rubber appears inside the car after driving out of the highway I take the car back on the highway with the cardealer once again and same thing happens, again smell of burnt rubber.
The car was driven normally. Aircondition/airvent was on.
We stop the car, open the hood and the smell of burnt rubber is coming from the engine and not the tires.

What cant it be, what do I do?

Likely the undercoating getting hot, or the rust protection around/near the engine and exhaust.
