I bought my yaris 1.0 T3 in July and have found it to be a great car. The car drives well and is quite nippy although I have found the clutch to be a little jumpy, it is very economical on fuel both on a long and short journey and insurance is very reasonable. The interior is very user friendly with glove compartments on passenger and drivers side and the view of the speedometer is at eye level allowing me to keep my eyes firmly on the road the controls for the CD player are on the steering wheel and I have found this to be of great benefit. On the whole my Yaris is wonderful and I intend buying another one in the future.
I chose the Yaris over a 207 or Clio because of the innovative design, both inside and out, and its lovable character.
The digital display and stop/start system is convenient and easy to use. The load space is truly flat, once seats are slid forward and folded by means of two accessible levers.
Quality of materials is good apart from the tonneau cover. MPG from the 1.3VVT is about 52.5 in mixed conditions. Handling is excellent with the tight turning circle. Though nippier than its French rivals it is also noisier.
My model is not in your list. I bought a Yaris T3 WT 5dr auto in April and it's brilliant.
It drives really well on country lanes. I mainly use it to get to work and when we go to see friends. On the motorway, fuel economy is quite outstanding. The drive on motorways, even in excess of 70mph, is very good - there is little road noise and the seats provide good support for longer journeys.
I test drove the Honda Jazz auto and the Citroen C3, and although I liked the C3, I thought the Yaris was better all round. The Jazz I would not entertain - it was rubbish, noisy, bouncy and gave a terrible drive.
The boot is small, but it's not a family car, and the parcel shelf is flimsy, but it would be difficult to get round this with the rear seats moving back and forward. The head room in the back was OK for my wife and friend - it is not expected to carry four adults on long journeys. I would but this car again, espaecially the auto - it's ace.
i have had this yaris for four weeks now, i think it is excellent!
It is a small car, with a lot of interior space, the rear seat can fold flat in one click. The seat are comfortable. Safefy is excellent, with five star ncap, nine(9) air bag. With a lot of equipments, the running cost are good too, i would highly recommend it.
