On the surface, Yaris has much to offer people who are looking for an inexpensive subcompact.
It rides fairly well and is easy to maneuver and park.
Handling is secure, thanks to standard stability control and braking is very good.
Excellent fuel economy is another plus.
However, the Yaris is noisy and uncomfortable, with a driving position none of our testers liked.
It's also short on reserve power and not much fun to drive.
