2020 Toyota Yaris Reliability - Consumer Reports
The badge may say Toyota, but this car is a Mazda through and through. That's a good thing. Related to the Mazda CX-3, this sedan (or hatchback) brings frugality, but not at the expense of ride comfort and driving enjoyment like past Toyota econoboxes. With the Yaris, formerly known as the Yaris iA, Toyota has done away with the bare-bones economy car, offering an enjoyable subcompact.
