Introduction

What Car? says...

Despite the rise in large, beefed-up SUVs, the small-car market is still booming, and the Toyota Yaris has long been a staple of the class. It may be less of a household name in the UK than mainstream favourites such as the Ford Fiesta, Vauxhall Corsa and  Volkswagen Polo, but it’s never been more relevant than it is today.

You see, with emissions and running costs at the front of everyone’s minds, the Yaris stands out by being offered in both petrol and hybrid guises. There’s the option of a 1.5-litre petrol unit, or the same engine featuring alongside an electric motor in the Yaris Hybrid model. The hybrid's petrol-electric power remains unique in the small car class.

A range of trim levels and specification options help give the low-cost car some more premium-feeling features, while a raft of safety equipment included as standard sets it apart from more expensive rivals, too. 

So does the Yaris now compete more closely with its small car rivals, and is the hybrid version worthy enough to justify its extra cost? Keep reading on over the next few pages to find out. And if you do want a Yaris, don't forget to check out our New Car Buying pages, where you could find a big discount.
