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

Trim: Excel

16in alloys, a rear spoiler and chrome side sills. LED front and rear lights are fitted, with an automatic dusk-sensing function for the headlights as well as climate control and part leather and Alcantara seat upholstery.

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.
