The Yaris remains a slow, noisy, and tinny subcompact with a choppy ride and an awkward driving position. This two- or four-door hatchback uses a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. A five-speed manual transmission is standard; a four-speed automatic is optional. The Yaris we tested returned 32 mpg overall. All versions have Toyota's Entune infotainment system, with a 6.1-inch touch screen and phone connectivity. A dealer-installed navigation system is available as an option. If you are set on buying a subcompact, the Yaris iA is more fuel-efficient and is likely to be a better choice. For the 2017 model year, automatic emergency braking is standard.
