2012 Toyota Yaris Review

Overview
Your Yaris! A toungue twister well worth the effort! Ever wondered why great design has to cost an arm and a leg? Well we asked ourselves that same question and came up with a great idea. Make that two great ideas. The 2012 Toyota Yaris Liftback and the Yaris Sedan. Both versions are designed to feature “class-above'' ambiance with clean contemporary styling and first-rate materials. Although the Yaris is considered a subcompact and takes up a small space on the road and in the parking lot space efficiency is the name of the game inside. Liftback's available 60/40 split reclining sliding fold-flat rear seat makes storage a moot point. Small car hefty power. Yaris comes equipped with a 1.5-liter DOHC 16-valve VVT-i 4-cylinder engine. With exceptional EPA gas mileage ratings this 106 horsepower car gets up to 40 mpg the car you can afford to drive is finally the car you actually want to drive. Safety is not compromised either. The Yaris comes standard with dual front airbags and optional side curtain airbags to keep you in safe hands. The 2012 Yaris an easy on the pocket vehicle for a full lifestyle.
