The Yaris has some real and important strengths, not least its superb fuel economy and the likelihood of excellent reliability. It should hold its value well, too, and while there are cheaper alternatives, you do get plenty of standard luxury and safety kit. However, the Yaris can’t match the Polo for interior quality, infotainment or ride comfort, and it's pretty cramped inside – especially compared with the Tardis-like Honda Jazz. Stick with the cheaper trim levels for the best value.
