Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
Last year, Toyota gave the Yaris hatchback a complete makeover. The only changes for 2013 involve equipment packaging: The good audio system (AM/FM/CD, six speakers, USB port, Bluetooth) is now standard on all trims including the base L, and cruise control, formerly an LE option, is now standard there.
Toyota's Star Safety System is added to all Yaris models, bringing standard traction and electronic stability control to the little compact. Other changes for 2010 include a rear window defroster as standard equipment and the addition of a tachometer and manual transmission on the five door.
A new five-door Liftback joins the lineup, while cruise control is made available on both the three- and five-door models. New standard equipment includes anti-lock brakes (ABS), front side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbag and satellite capability on the optional radio offerings.
The sport-themed Liftback S joins the Yaris lineup, featuring color-keyed front and rear bumper spoilers, sport seat fabric, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, rear defroster, rear wiper and an AM/FM/CD player with MP3/WMA capability and universal mini-jack port.
This is the Yaris' first year in the U.S. As the first of the many new smaller and less-expensive subcompacts from major Japanese carmakers (such as the Honda Fit and Nissan Versa) the Yaris' gas mileage ratings rank highest (34 mpg City and 40 mpg Highway).
The Toyota Yaris makes its U.S. debut this year after a successful eight-year stint in Japan and Europe. Unlike other vehicles that first launch outside the U.S., Toyota has decided to keep the Yaris name across all global markets. The Yaris replaces the Toyota Echo as the smallest and least expensive vehicle in the Toyota brand lineup. There are two distinctly different Yaris models; the Sedan and the Liftback versions. Of the two, the Liftback's exterior makes the more expressive design statement and, although the sedan is nearly 20 inches longer, both vehicles share the same chassis, engine and drivetrain.
