Trim: Active

Toyota’s Safety Sense package (now standard on all Yaris versions) brings automatic city braking technology, lane departure alert and automatic high beam, plus, rain-sensing windscreen wipers, power front windows, Bluetooth and a six-speaker audio system come on entry-level Active models.

Engine: 1.5 Hybrid

This engine is borrowed from the Prius, albeit with a smaller battery pack. It is probably the quickest Yaris in-gear, thanks to the extra assistance from the electric motor, but the CVT gearbox is noisy, sending the revs flaring when you try and accelerate.
