Editor's Overview

Toyota’s 2016 Yaris subcompact isn’t the most advanced car in its class, but if simple and cute do it for you, there’s no arguing with the Yaris’ strong reputation for reliability and good fuel economy. No longer Toyota’s most anonymous car, the Yaris still falls short of what rivals from Ford, Chevy, Nissan and Kia have to offer.

Great gas mileage without extra price of hybrid.

I have loved this car--it's reliable, sturdy, has good gas mileage, and fits a surprising amount of things for a small car. It is not fancy, nor does it have extra features, but gets the job done. It is been a solid, straightforward vehicle that is good for long distances and some rough terrain while camping. The car is perfect for someone of my height, but any friend who has driven it and is 6 feet tall or over feels cramped.

My Toyota Yaris is roomy, reliable, safe, and is a very sporty car.

My Toyota Yaris is very reliable. It is fast, safe and although it may be a small car, it feels very roomy on the inside. It has comfortable room inside and the hatchback has a huge trunk that is covered with a privacy piece so no one can see what you have in your car. I think my favorite features about it are that it has one large front windshield wiper and has Bluetooth on the inside, which I use quite frequently.

Great car for city living!

I really wish my car felt safer. I love the small size. It is perfect for city living, but I do not feel very safe in it. I feel like any car could just take me out in one fell swoop. Forget about living if a semi truck even remotely touches it. Otherwise, I love the size, the zippiness, the look, the features, etc..
