Great car and great value for money
I just recently purchased my new Toyota Yaris (silver pearl) and was very pleased with the experience. I highly recommend Kieran from Toyota Lander Blacktown.
The car runs smooth and although small, it’s very spacious inside and packs good power. Definitely a god buy and can be used in short or long drives.

Tiny reliable car
The Yaris performs very well. Never had a problem with it since purchasing in 2015. No noise and hassle. It has a reverse camera which is very useful. The tiny body makes it very comfortable to drive in narrow roads. It is very fuel efficient and reliable even on long drives. Toyota really delivers!
Some things to consider before buying
The venerable Toyota delivers on all fronts - looks, cabin space, handling and efficient maintenance (the positives). However there are some major and minor concerns I have with my 2016 standard Yaris that I believe should be considered before buying. Read this if you want to understand this car's negatives:
Major concern 1) Crash protection. After being driven into at 60kmphr, and hit in the front left section of the car, no airbags deployed. I later learned that airbags require velocity to deploy. Perhaps this is standard across the range, b...
Ok for single person use
Not as strong performance, but a reliable car. Interiors are good, and cheap to run and maintain. As a hatchback, able to utilise back seats for extra space as boot space. New designs are looking better. Would recommend for single person use such as myself (I am a university student).
Reliable and Comfortable
I love this car. Have had it two years now. Have not had to take it back to dealer for any defect. Handles well on the road and is comfortable for long distance travel. Love the fuel economy. The only thing I could fault is where they put the clock, right where the speedo is, and at my age it is too hard to see. Would like it on the dash where most cars put it and then could read it. Also a full spare wheel would be better. For a small car the boot has good room and like the idea of two levels. And being able to move the seat up and down is good along with cruise control and reverse camera standard in the base model is a plus. Really good price compared to other cars. Would recommend this car.
Worst car seat and suspension
Bought 2015Yaris brand new from stewArt Toyota...things needs to be considered... its engine size is small hence low power and torque, seats are the most uncomfortable.. I had a hip problem after driving half an hour( that’s the only reason I have sell it within 1 month), no foot rest, suspension is horrible , worst in humps..exterior material is a very thin tin (feels very cheap and light), trunk size is ok...please consider these things before getting one.. consider i30 or vw polo or golf or Mazda 3 in your shopping list.. cheers
The Yaris auto was bought for my wife. A little heavy on the fuel for a 1300cc motor. Fixed price servicing hard to beat. Ride is a little noisy. Easy to park and plenty of leg room. Radio/CD player in both my Corolla and Yaris are not as good as expected (USB issues). Internal fit out basic. Seats comfortable and good vision. Reversing display obscure at night and in bad light. Starts first time and keeps going.
Amazing and enjoyable
Such a reliable little car and the fuel runs so cheap!
So many compartments to keep everything in.
The touch screen is amazing and my music plays so well from my phone via bluetooth
The toyota service center has some of the most amazing staff as well, which is a plus
Good car overall if you are in small car segment
This is really a Good car overall if you are in small car segment. My previous car was sedan. But I realised that I didn't need such big car because I am city guy. Hatch car is easy to drive, park especially when you drive a lot in city and nearby suburbs. It's economical too. Runs 430 kms between fuel tank fill ups.
Good little car!
Bought this car for gf recently and for the price of the car it is great value. Included were all the options such as bluetooth, power everything, reverse camera and cruise control. Great car for around the city but not much of a fan of it at higher speeds. It is also great on fuel, city driving = less than $20/week to get to work and back plus other driving around.
I've been driving my 2015 Toyota Yaris for more than 1.5yrs. It is an amazing car. Very reliable and very fuel efficient. Already done 30,000km with absolutely no issues so far. Interior is surprisingly spacious with plenty of storage space. Highly recommended if you are looking for a small car.
Great little car
Bought this as a second run about, but have ended up driving it as much as possible. Easy to drive and park, great maneuverability, fantastic safety features and a great price. It's also deceptively large inside. We can fit a booster and 4 adults at a pinch. Toyota service in general is excellent
Great car!! Perfect for a first car buyer!!
Great car to drive with low running costs. It has not given me any issues whatsoever!! Fantastic experience overall with capped price servicing and extended warranty. The Bluetooth, reverse camera and cruise control adds extra value. The new exterior in the 2016 model also makes it more stylish. Overall, a reliable car with low running costs that is also affordable.
Bought a Yaris in November, 2015 from Phil Gilbert @ Lidcombe. Since then Cliffton has given "fantastico" service.
The 30K service was just done, and cost $168.55 (Including Full-Synthetic Oil) No Problems, unlike my previous
one which caused me "INCREDIBLE GRIEF" since Day One
The only thing I haven't learnt to do is the "Toyota Jump:.
I’ve been driving my new Toyota Yaris Hatch for over 2 months now and am happy with it. I traded it for my 20+ year old Toyota Seca which had never given me any trouble, but it was time to renew. I had slight trouble to get the head rest thingy right with the Yaris so it wasn’t pushing my head forward, and managed to get it comfortable. There are a couple of features that I liked better with my Seca, one being that although the Yaris headlights have an automatic setting, I chose the manual option as I drive during the day with parkers or hea...dlights on if it’s raining and dull as the car is a dark grey and harder to see; if I got out of the car and left the lights on I used to get a beep to warn me with the Seca, not so with the Yaris, pity, cos I forget sometimes. Then there’s the clock, if it’s a couple of minutes fast, what a rigmarole to set it back, ok forward but have to go the whole cycle to set the minutes back (unless I’m doing it wrong) will have to read the manual. Not much else to gripe about at the moment though, I’m enjoying driving it.
I am very happy with the new design of the 2015 model. I wanted to have a safe car and set my eyes on Toyota because of its safety design and reliability. Having been driving this for 4 months, this car is just easy to park with the reverse camera.
5 Door Yaris
Fantastic, reliable, fuel efficient car. Highly recommend this car which is great value. Cheap to service, cruises beautifully at 100 kph. They are better than expected. Grow on you very quickly the more you use it. No dislikes so far and keep posted as I will keep updating its progress from new.
Product review update. Booked in for the 10,000km service tomorrow. The only concern is I can smell fuel outside the car after I fill it up. So when I get home, I can smell it in the garage.
Dislikes of the car. Wish I had parking sensors. Steering ...
