The Toyota Yaris is no doubt nimble and comes equipped with the standard tech, safety and comforts of a subcompact that’ll get you from Point A to Point B in a breeze. The big standouts of the sporty chic ride is the tri-color design, Toyota’s stellar safety features and surprising roominess inside.
The 2016 Toyota Yaris is as unique as any subcompact could be. The sleek exterior styling has all the right curves, and available projector-beam headlights and an oversize blacked-out grille add more attitude than any compact or subcompact on the road. Available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) feature an accent light bar for added eye-catching style. And with its spoiler, integrated fog lights and 16-in. machined-finish alloy wheels, Yaris LE is always ready to show off its sporty side.
Driving a Yaris is a fun. It’s a subcompact, probably a step above driving a golf cart in traffic – but it’s definitely fun! It’s just responsive enough to make it enjoyable behind the wheel and small enough to let you maneuver through traffic.
During my drive, it was difficult to really gain momentum once pulling off from a red light, but after awhile of driving, I stopped expecting it to go from 0-50 in less than 10 seconds. On the upside, the Toyota Yaris is the best when it comes to parallel parking. With its easy maneuverability and smaller profile, you’ll find yourself looking for small spaces to fit in just for fun.
The gas mileage, as expected, is pretty great too! With up to an impressive EPA-estimated 37 highway mpg 16 I found myself making more thrift store shopping trips and didn’t have to refill the gas tank for almost 7 days.
The available steering wheel-mounted audio controls let you control your tunes while keeping your attention on the road ahead. With Bluetooth wireless technology standard in every Yaris along with Entune audio, your phone can stay in your pocket and you can still access it from your car. Tune in or press play on the standard 6-speaker, AM/FM CD player. And with standard HD Radio every Yaris you’ll be sure to hear crisp, rich audio at no matter if you’re into classical, trap music OR BOTH.
With an unexpectedly roomy 15.6 cu. ft. of cargo space the Toyota Yaris 5-Door Liftback gives you the room you need to bring along the things, friends and family you want. Looking around has never been easier. With the 360-degree view in the Yaris, every drive is a scenic drive.
You can’t talk about a Toyota without talking about it’s advanced safety features. Yaris helps protect you and your crew with nine standard airbags, including a driver and front passenger Advanced Airbag System, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side airbags, driver and front passenger seat-cushion airbags, front/rear side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag.
Starting at $14,895, the 2016 Toyota Yaris is a great competitive subcompact to rival Chevy Spark or Fiat model and with plenty of room to spare, you’ll want to drive friends and family around all weekend long.
