5 reasons to buy the 2010 Toyota Yaris

1. City-sized

At 150-inches long, the 2010 Toyota Yaris is small enough for the heaviest traffic without being stressful to drive. The agile and responsive handling is perfect for tight streets and traffic congestion. With a compact footprint, you'll actually look forward to parallel parking since it's so easy. The Yaris has a light curb weight, and the precise steering makes it feel sporty and light on its feet during acceleration or heavy braking emergency stops.

2. Maximum MPG

Road trips are memorable for the roads and attractions, not the gas stations. The 2010 Toyota Yaris with a four-speed automatic can be your great road trip companion with an EPA-estimated 31 mpg combined.

 The five-speed manual Yaris earns an EPA-estimated 32 mpg combined.
 Both transmission choices deliver the same estimated mileage in city driving, so get the one you're comfortable with.

3. Have it your way

The 2010 Toyota Yaris is available in sedan or hatchback form. The sedan delivers a traditional rear trunk with 12.9 cu-ft of cargo, which is enough for three suitcases. Check out the Yaris with a versatile hatchback rear if you want more space. The hatch is called Yaris Liftback on this model, which allows 9.5 cu-ft of cargo behind the rear seats. Put those seats down, and the cargo room jumps to a handy 25.7 cu-ft, enough for a full-size road bike without taking it apart.

4. Comfortable ride

Get in the Yaris and check out the bigger-on-the-inside feel, with plenty of headroom for taller drivers, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel that meets you where you're comfortable. The supportive seats have deep buckets for all-day road trip comfort, and the upright driving position provides an excellent view of the road. The soft suspension soaks up bumps, ironing out the rough edges in your commute.

5. Option it up

The 2010 Toyota Yaris doesn't have traditional trim levels but allows you to option up the base trim to your liking. Look for appearance upgrades like flashy 15-inch alloy wheels and a sporty rear hatch spoiler. Inside, there are all the power options you expect, like power door locks, windows, and mirrors. The sound system includes a CD player if you're holding onto your physical media and an aux port for digital tunes. There's also available Bluetooth® connectivity and satellite radio capability with a subscription.
