Introduction
The Yaris is Toyota's entry-level model, a subcompact hatchback built in 3-door and 5-door configurations. It competes against similarly sized and priced models including the Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Honda Fit, Hyundai Accent, Kia Rio, Mazda 2, and Nissan Versa Note.

Models and Features
Toyota offers the 2015 Yaris in L, LE, and SE trim levels, the latter available only in a 5-door body style. Upgrade to LE trim for 15-in. aluminum wheels, chrome grille trim, metallic interior trim, power exterior mirrors, cruise control, audio controls on the steering wheel, and remote keyless entry.

The Yaris SE is equipped with more aggressive styling cues, larger 16-in. aluminum wheels, sport-tuned suspension, rear disc brakes, projector-beam headlights, LED running lights, fog lights, and a rear spoiler. Inside, the SE features special fabric for the seats, leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, and sporty instrumentation.

Under the Hood
Each 2015 Yaris is equipped with a 106-horsepower, 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine. A 4-speed automatic transmission is included for all versions except the Yaris L 3-door and the Yaris SE 5-door, each of which offers the automatic as an option to replace the standard 5-speed manual gearbox.

Every 2015 Yaris includes free scheduled maintenance for the first 2 years or 25,000 miles of ownership.

Fuel Economy
Little difference exists between the EPA fuel-economy ratings for the manual and the automatic transmissions. Choose the former and this car is expected to get 30 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway. Choose the latter and the Yaris is rated 30 mpg city/36 mpg highway.

Safety and Technology
For 2015, Toyota's touch-screen infotainment technology is standard, featuring a 6.1-in. display screen, HD Radio, Bluetooth connectivity and music streaming, USB port, voice-recognition capability, iTunes tagging feature, and more. A navigation system is available as an option.

As far as safety is concerned, the Yaris is equipped with 9 air bags as standard equipment.
