Icon versions and above come with a 4.2in TFT colour screen between the instruments and a 7.0in touchscreen infotainment system that reduces the number of buttons on the dash. The latter is reasonably easy to use, with simple menus and clear (if rather small) icons. However, the system is a little slow to respond, the menus are unnecessarily complicated and the graphics aren’t that sharp. Disappointingly, the Yaris also doesn’t offer Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
The Yaris comes with Bluetooth and the ability to stream music, plus a USB port and audio controls on the steering wheel. All models get a DAB radio and all but Icon Tech (which gets it as standard) can be upgraded to get an integrated sat-nav. Still, the screens on the Seat Ibiza and Skoda Fabia are a lot slicker and easier to use, with clearer, simpler menus.
