About Toyota Yaris

The 2017 Yaris is Toyota's least expensive vehicle, a 3- or 5-door hatchback that puts a priority on low-cost ownership and driving manners that are easy and efficient, if not all that enthusiastic. Still fresh off a revamp two years ago, the Toyota Yaris receives a newsworthy update for 2017 with its Safety Sense technology. Standard on all models, this suite of advanced safety features includes pre-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and lane-departure warning. That in itself helps the Yaris stand out against subcompact rivals like the Honda Fit, Hyundai Accent, Ford Fiesta and Nissan Versa, and will assuredly ease the minds of parents of younger drivers. Two years of complimentary maintenance, strong resale value and overall practicality make the Yaris even more compelling.

"I sold my 2005 Toyota Tacoma Access cab after 12 years. Didn't need a truck anymore and the mileage was bad. I tried all the Toyotas including the Prius and the Prius C, but I don't drive alot and the battery pack was a ticking bomb needing replacement eventually. I found my 2015 Yaris after searching for a hatchback, I still needed some access in the back but I didn't need a large car and really didn't need 4 doors. My yaris popped up on the search with the Blue Streak Metallic paint and in a 2 door, plus an LE no less. It has cruise, alloy wheels and a center console cup holder that fits my quart bottle of Gatorade. I felt like I was still driving the Tacoma, it was so roomy and the drive was smooth and quiet, due to the extra insulation in the engine compartment and around the cabin. I really enjoy the city driving mileage of 32MPG I get and I can hang a U-turn while going the wrong way in a parking lot and swinging right into the opposite side space. In fact, I make a U-turn on the road and end up in the left lane as though I was always there. Too much fun. It is plenty powerful for me, about the same as the Tacoma and there is no problem getting into traffic or anything you might read from a biased writer. As a former owner of a SS396 1967 Camaro, and a 1988 Corvette, this is the most fun any 67 year old can ask for. Did I mention I found this car with 42K miles and for $9400. So I bought my Tacoma, new, for $22K and sold it for $14K (only 65,000 miles) and bought this for $9400 with warranty and only 2 years old. Not bad!"

"My Yaris has been a great car. It is a simple, honest car and in my opinion a much better car for the long term than most of its competitors. My car has 200,000 miles on it and it really doesn't feel much different than when it was new. Still tight, solid and rattle free. Maintenance is simple and dirt cheap and it never, ever gives any trouble. I always get at least 37 mpg which is above the EPA highway rating. The car is nimble and pretty fun to drive although the engine does get loud at the higher rpm ranges. The seats are comfortable for me but a little more driver leg room would be nice. My very long commute involves twisting mountain roads, interstate highways and city traffic and it handles everything fine although high winds can blow it around a bit on the highway but probably no worse than other cars its size. Overall I love my Yaris. If your looking for a sports or luxury car look elsewhere. If what you want is a simple, money saving car the Yaris simply can't be beat."
