Review

The Yaris Cross makes a strong case for itself against the crowd of small SUVs, especially if you value low running costs and Toyota’s impressive reliability record. That said, the Ford Puma still looks like the better overall option, offering a more dynamic driving experience and much more luggage space.

get the best price

Sitting slightly below Excel trim, Dynamic trim builds on the Design trim by adding 18in alloy wheels, a 9.0in touchscreen infotainment system, heated front seats, electronically-adjustable lumbar support, an auto-dimming rear view mirror, dual-zone air conditioning and a stylish black bi-tone roof. The optional all-wheel drive system can also be specced with the Dynamic trim.

The Yaris Cross isn’t the fastest small SUV out there but its EV mode makes it one of the most efficient. The electric motor makes the Yaris Cross quick off the line and the engine easily accelerates it up to motorway speeds but the CVT automatic gearbox makes it a noisy affair. Unlike many rivals, there’s the option of all-wheel drive on the top trims.
