Overview

The Yaris is offered in two body styles: 3-door and 5-door liftback. All 2016 Toyota Yaris models come with a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine making 106 hp and 103 ft-lb of torque. With variable valve timing, the engine is quite flexible and responsive and works quite well with the available 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings are 30 mpg city, 36 mpg highway with the automatic, or 30 mpg city / 37 mpg highway with the manual.

Standard features on all Yaris models include daytime running lights, intermittent wipers, a 4-speaker CD/MP3 player with iPod input, tilt steering wheel, power locks, air conditioning, anti-lock brakes and stability control. Nine air bags, including front-seat, side-curtain and a driver's knee airbag, are also included. An efficiency-enhancing trip computer is included in the instrumentation that will show instant fuel economy and an "ECO driving indicator" to show the driver how well they're doing. The 5-door model gets a rear wiper standard as well.

The Yaris may be diminutive, but it doesn't sacrifice comfort or interior space. Its 85 cubic-feet of passenger volume and 15 cubic-feet of cargo space mean it's comfortable enough for up to 5 passengers and their stuff. The short 99-inch wheelbase means a tight turning circle of just 31 feet. Suspension is a MacPherson strut-type front suspension and torsion-beam rear setup tuned for good ride comfort, while electric-assist power steering maximizes efficiency as well as improving parking-lot maneuverability.

In addition to the standard equipment, the LE model adds on power-adjustable mirrors, an upgraded 6-speaker stereo with HD radio and Bluetooth. Upgraded front seats, a split-folding rear seat, and steering wheel audio controls are also included, as is remote keyless.

The SE model gets 16-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, fog lamps, a mesh grille, cruise control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter.
