TOYOTA YARIS,

Overview

Toyota Yaris is equipped and makes an ideal first set of wheels or economical commuter car that's light on fuel budgets and a snap to park. Power comes from a smooth and quiet 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. The well-matched gearing of the six-speed automatic downshifts promptly, delivering responsive acceleration. Fuel economy is an excellent 35 mpg overall. Handling is agile and more engaging. The ride isn't harsh, but the cabin can get loud, especially on the highway. Note that the infotainment system requires a learning curve. At least it's compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Automatic emergency braking is standard, but no other advanced safety features are offered. A hatchback is also available.

Inside

          The Toyota Yaris seats five in both sedan and hatchback body styles. The front seats are spacious enough for taller occupants, and they provide good lateral support but not much lower-back support. The rear seats are roomy enough for two adults, but taller passengers may complain that there's not enough headroom. Cloth upholstery and manually adjustable front seats are standard. Synthetic leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a center armrest are available. The Yaris has a handsome and uncluttered cabin that is reminiscent of Mazda vehicles. (The Yaris is built in partnership with Mazda.) The styling could even pass for an entry-level luxury car, though with a mix of hard and soft plastics. The interior gets a bit noisy at higher speeds, which is typical of cars in this segment.

Driving

       The Toyota Yaris has a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 106 horsepower. A six-speed manual transmission and front-wheel drive are standard. A six-speed automatic transmission is available. The Yaris has some of the sportiest driving dynamics in its segment. It feels composed and stable around turns. The steering is quick and communicative, helping the Yaris feel even smaller and lighter than it is. It’s also a cinch to park and maneuver in tight areas. However, the Yaris’ suspension does tend to jiggle over rough pavement.
