What's New for 2013:

  • Base Yaris L trim level includes Tech Audio system with Bluetooth calling and music streaming, HD Radio, satellite radio compatibility, and 6 speakers
  • Yaris LE trim now equipped with standard cruise control

Exterior Features
The 2013 Toyota Yaris is a 3- or 5-door sub-compact hatchback offered in L, LE and SE trim levels. The Yaris SE is only available in the 5-door body style.

Standard equipment for the Yaris L trim includes 15-inch steel wheels with plastic wheel covers, single-arm intermittent front wiper, and a rear defogger.

Interior Features
The 2013 Toyota Yaris L includes standard air conditioning, power door locks, trip computer, and an outside temperature indicator. A 6-speaker stereo with a CD/MP3 player, auxiliary audio input jack, USB port, an iPod connection, HD Radio, satellite radio preparation, and Bluetooth hands-free calling and music streaming are also included on the Yaris L. This version of the Yaris is also equipped with cloth seats, tilt steering wheel, sunvisor extensions, cargo cover, cargo area light, and a single-piece folding rear seatback.

Optional Features
The only option for the 2013 Yaris L is an automatic transmission. This transmission is standard on the Yaris LE, along with power windows, power exterior mirrors, remote keyless entry, cruise control, and steering wheel audio controls. A manual driver seat height adjuster, 60/40-split folding rear seat, and chrome interior trim are also included on the Yaris LE.

The Yaris SE includes fog lights, darkened headlights, mesh grille insert, body kit, rear spoiler, and 16-inch aluminum wheels. A sport-tuned suspension is also included, and the electric steering offers a quicker ratio and revised calibration for sportier driving, according to Toyota. The Yaris SE also has a standard manual gearbox, 4-wheel-disc brakes, sport-bolstered front seats wrapped in sport fabric, sport instrumentation, and a leather-trimmed sport steering wheel and shift knob. An automatic transmission is optional on the Yaris SE.

Under the Hood
The 2013 Toyota Yaris is equipped with a 1.5-liter, 106-horsepower 4-cylinder engine. The L and SE trims have a standard 5-speed manual gearbox. A 4-speed automatic transmission is optional on the L and SE and standard on the Yaris LE.

Toyota includes free scheduled maintenance for the first 2 years or 25,000 miles of ownership.

Fuel Economy
As this overview is written, the EPA has not established final fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Yaris.

Safety
The 2013 Toyota Yaris is equipped with 9 air bags, whiplash-lessening front seat designs, traction control, stability control, and anti-lock brakes with brake assist. Smart Stop technology is designed to make it impossible to accelerate if the brake pedal is depressed.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has finalized crash-test ratings for the 2013 Yaris as this overview is written. However, the structurally identical 2012 5-door hatchback model received a 4-star (out of 5) overall rating from the NHTSA. The 2012 Yaris was also named a \"Top Safety Pick\" by the Institute.
