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 VVT-i

The pick of the engines. This 1.5-litre petrol version is quicker than the 1.0 from 0-62mph, and is smoother in general. It’s worth going for, despite its higher CO2 output and distinctly average fuel economy figures. It’s available with either a manual or automatic gearbox.
