Toyota Yaris Overview

Toyota's least expensive car is available as a two- or four-door hatchback. Despite excellent fuel economy of 32 mpg overall in our tests and a relatively roomy rear seat, it remains rough and very Spartan in this increasingly competitive segment. Handling is ho-hum, and acceleration is slow. The cabin is noisy, the ride is busy ride, and the driving position is awkward. On top of all that, the radio is needlessly complex to operate. Reliability is likely to be very good, but the Yaris scores too low to be recommended. A 2015 redesign is coming soon.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
