What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Cheap to run; practical; drives well

Against Firm ride; three-door’s poor rear seat access

Verdict Quality for a low price, but rivals better it for comfort

Go for… 1.3 VVTi GS 5dr

Avoid… 1.0 S 3dr

Toyota Yaris Hatchback
  • 1. Whining gearboxes should have been replaced under the manufacturer’s three-year warranty
  • 2. Slipping clutches are a common complaint, especially on cars used mainly in town
  • 3. Uneven tyre wear is an indication of misaligned suspension; look for kerb-damaged wheels, too
  • 4. Interior is spacious for the class, and quirkily styled
