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).
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.

OK until you need to change a gear
The positive: well equipped, drives happily at 100km/h, comfortable.
The negative: it's manual transmission ruins the drive the second you need to use it. The accelerator has no resistance, you are either idling or doing 3000rpm when trying to move off from stationary. The gear lever has no feel and is quite an effort to push over into the 1-2 plane (third feels like first when you are stationary). The worst though is the hideous clutch which has little feel or resistance and engages only at the end of the clutch travel. It also seems to e...
