  1. The problem with the Yaris is that it does NOT have a really low price. Compared to a lot of its competitors (e.g. Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent, Mitsubishi Mirage, Ford Fiesta to name a few) it sells for several thousand more. (I'm talking actual sale price, not MSRP.)

  2. The little Toyotas were more fun when they either had manual steering or hydraulic power steering.

  3. Does Toyota have any idea how stupid those front grills look? Kia Motors hired Peter Schreyer to improve the look of their automobiles. I think it's about time Toyota followed suit because they are producing some really hideous stuff.

  4. The styling stinks, as is expected from Toyota. It looks like an unhappy constipated bug. The new 2018 Hyundai Accent, however, looks fantastic, like a super European mini sports sedan. Toyota needs to learn from Hyundai what automotive beauty is all about. Stop buildings cars with faces of terrorist fish (Camry), angry birds (all the models with beaks, like Corolla iM), alien snow plows (Lexus, regular Corolla), and frowning insects (Yaris).

  5. A vast improvement over the 2013 model year I test drove. I was so disappointed with it and went with a Ford Fiesta instead.

  6. That time-tested '4-spd automatic' is bulletproof for reliability, and is highly optimized/tuned for suburban/urban type driving – easily the best daily-driver subcompact/compact transmission ever built. The equally venerable 1NZ-FE engine is also bulletproof – and easily the best designed/built engine ever put into a car in this class. If it isn't broke, don't fix it. The car is pure gold at its intended design-purpose & price point – most especially the SE trim version

  7. Cheap nasty inside.inner door panels poor quality.only 1 electic window switch lights up out the 4.Electric mirrors switch dont light up at all.under powered 1.33 vvti and ride is bad.i was forever screaming at it.Because it had no power to overtake nothing .And over priced. I20 corca fiesta jazz polo mini.even a fiat punto drives and feels much better and faster than a yarris.Hybrid is the 1 to have but £16.000+.

  8. How come Toyota never has aircondition fir the rear seats? Golf gti and subaru do. I have a 2015 rav4 xle and 2011 yaris both do not have it. I live where it gets 115 degrees in the summer.
