Review

Although it’s well equipped and has a hybrid engine option, the Toyota Yaris doesn’t excel in enough areas to stand out in the tough small car class

get the best price

Trim: Icon

The Yaris is well equipped, even in the Icon entry-level trim; as well as Toyota’s Safety Sense package, you also get rain-sensing windscreen wipers and powered front windows. The 7.0in infotainment system with Bluetooth and a six-speaker audio system are also fitted across the range. Hybrid models additionally feature automatic air conditioning and projector headlights.

Engine: 1.0 [72] VVT-i

The cheapest way into the range, but it’s pretty hopeless out of the city limits. We’d upgrade to the 1.5.
