The Toyota Yaris is a practical and roomy supermini that is also very easy to drive and cheap to run. The vehicle begins with Active, Icon and Design trim levels and is also available in three and five-door body styles.
The Yaris’ front fascia is distinguished by a subtle chrome X-design that artfully connects sleek headlights and a multi-louvered radiator grille. Also included as standard are 15-inch alloy wheels and body-coloured fixtures, such as door mirrors. Illumination includes projector headlights and chrome-trimmed front fog lamps. Design grades add a gloss-black honeycomb grille, a rear spoiler, LED daytime running lights and LED tail lights. The same grade can also be specified with one of two bi-tone paint finishes – allowing you to choose black or white as the car’s predominant colour.
There’s space for five people to travel in comfort; the Yaris’ affords plenty of leg and headroom, and the driver further benefits from a height-adjustable seat. Standard features include power-operated front windows (with one-touch and anti-trap facility on the driver’s side), along with air conditioning. Icon grades also feature a three-spoke leather steering wheel and gear shift knob, while Design trims add a leather parking brake. The vehicle’s 286-litre boot space can be expanded to 768 litres with rear seats folded.
A 1.0-litre 69bhp petrol engine is fitted as standard. Mated to a five-speed manual gearbox, this delivers up to 65.7mpg and a 99g/km CO2 emissions figure. Hybrid models come with a 1.4-litre 90bhp petrol-electric engine (paired with six-speed manual transmission). This returns as much as much as 85.6mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 75g/km.
A six-speaker sound system includes an MP3-compatible CD player and an AM/FM radio. Icon grades and higher come with a Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system, which includes DAB radio, Bluetooth connectivity and a reversing camera.The Yaris comes with Euro NCAP’s maximum five-star crash-test rating.
Driver aids include Vehicle Stability Control and Tyre Pressure Warning System (Hybrid models also feature Hill-start Assist Control). Standard passive safety elements, such as front and rear seatbelt reminders, a seven-airbag system and active headrests, are also featured with all models.
