Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

We’d avoid the 68bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol model because it’s slow, even when you rev it hard. It’s also noisy and creates too much vibration. The same is true of the 89bhp 1.4-litre diesel, but at least it gives decent performance.

The 98bhp 1.33 petrol is smoother and perkier than either of those engines, so it’s the one we’d go for.

The Hybrid, which combines a 1.5-litre petrol engine with an electric motor, is quiet at low speeds when running on electric power, but raucous when accelerating briskly. It’s also the priciest Yaris to buy, so is hard to make a rational case for.

Our favourite trim is Icon, which comes with 15-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, a rear-view camera, leather steering wheel and Toyota’s Touch 2 infotainment system.

There are various good-value option packs available, which include features such as front and rear parking sensors, and LED daytime running lights.
