About The Toyota Yaris
Since 1999, the Toyota Yaris has been offered in North America as a subcompact vehicle with both hatchback and sedan configurations. Its two most recent generations span from 2005-2013 and 2013-present, respectively. With its sleek profile and compact design, the Yaris offers excellent handling in tight spaces and a smooth, quiet ride.
A popular vehicle for commuters and city-dwellers, the most recent Yaris generation also offers a variety of trim options to suit each buyer's needs. Specifically, the Yaris is available in three trim configurations (L, LE, and SE) for the 2013-2018 model years and four configurations (L, LE, SE, and XLE) for the 2019 model year. While the overall look and feel of the Yaris hasn't changed drastically over the past several years, recent model year releases (including 2018 and 2019) have seen the introduction of some popular standard features, including lane-departure warning, forward-collision warning, and automatic emergency braking as well as Bluetooth® smartphone integration.

Reviews for Toyota Yaris
Great econobox and fun to drive - 2012 Toyota Yaris
It's a small car so expect those limitations. I bought the car mainly for gas economy. In that regard I'm very impressed by fuel economy I'm getting both in town and on the highway (both better than EPA ratings). It's a fun car to drive, handles great, and gets in and out of traffic good. Just do not expect 0-60 mph times under 13 seconds.
- Fuel Economy: If you can drive with a light foot I've gotten over 35mpg around town and over 40mpg on the highway.
- Ride and Handling: Small car allows nimble handling in town. Great in small spaces (parking lots, garages,etc) for in town commuting.
- Cargo Space: It's a small car so storage (trunk space) is very limited.
- Cabin Noise: You can hear some wind noise at highway speeds. Around town not an issue.
- Value: Fit and finish on both front and rear bumper covers is not the best. Both do not fit tightly and have gaps.
Toyota falsely advertised the mpg. They say it should make 30/38 and I'm getting 20 mpg!!! This is so far off - it's inexcusable. I made the same mileage with the car I sold - my 1971 datsun which I had owned for over 45 years! Pick-up not as good and the shifting gears not as smooth as my old car. Turning radius is lousy. Windshield wiper controls in a stupid place - constantly hitting them which is really bad for the windshield. There are a few other little things that I don't like. What I do like is having air conditioning and I do enjoy the power steering. I had one other big concern which is when I had to make an extreme sudden stop, the brakes made an awful noise. I had my mechanic check it out and they claim it's normal!
- Seat Comfort: because it's comfortable
- Interior Space: there's almost too much room for me, it would be better if it wasn't so wide
- Fuel Economy: because this car make lousy mpg -20 mpg!! my 1971 datsun made that
2011 Yaris is a great, reliable vehicle that is easy to work on
The car has a timing chain, not a belt. (When belts break, they disable the vehicle and are expensive to replace). Toyota thought of just about everything on this car. When you have to work on this car, it is easy to do (there is room for your hands and the parts are cheap; it takes almost no time). Also, you will rarely have to do anything but maintain the vehicle and it will run like a charm!
- Fuel Economy:
- Cost to Maintain:
- Dashboard: Speedometer placement is ridiculous
