The modelRead full Toyota Yaris review
The Yaris has some important strengths, not least its superb fuel economy, excellent reliability and generous standard kit. However, it can’t match the VW Polo for interior quality, infotainment or ride comfort, and it's pretty cramped inside, especially compared with the Honda Jazz.
The trimSee full equipment
The Yaris is well equipped, even in entry-level Icon trim; you get climate control, auto lights and wipers, electric front windows, 16in alloy wheels, a reversing camera and 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system with a DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s also a suite of safety tech including automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control.
The engineSee full engine specs
A 0-60mph time of 9.0sec won’t set anyone’s trousers on fire, but the Yaris doesn’t struggle to get up to motorway speeds. It’s super economical, especially around town, but the 1.5-litre petrol engine is noisy when you aren't driving gently.
