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: Y20

Y-20 trim was created to celebrate 20 years of the Yaris, and features larger 16in alloys, a honeycomb mesh grille, piano-black side mouldings, rear privacy glass and a rear spoiler. ​​​​​​​

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.
