What's New

The 2018 Toyota Yaris gets a visual tune-up this year, with a more aggressive nose and tail. Inside, all Yaris models get SE-levels of interior trim. Note that the Yaris is a different car from the Yaris iA, which itself is a refugee from the now-defunct Scion brand.

Sleek white car with great gas mileage.

My Toyota Yaris is a great car and I really love that it looks sharp and sleek, although aesthetic is of very little importance to me when it comes to purchasing a car. I needed a white car, or a very light car, because sunspots can be seen or black, grey or dark tones cars in Arizona. Overall, I love how Toyotas last a long time and still run amazingly. I have never had any problems with my previously owned Toyotas and they are worth it in the long run. My Toyota Yaris gets great gas mileage which is very important to me because I drive long distances for both my education and for work. I chose my Toyota Yaris because of the price and because I needed something reliable to get me to and from work and school without having to worry about it break down. I feel like you get what you pay for with Toyotas and that is definitely peace of mind. What I am not a far of is the price of Toyotas but the fact that they allow you to have a cosigner and go with the higher credit score to get the lower payment a month is why I feel people gravitate toward getting a Toyota in the first place. Some features in my car that are important to me are the safety of having a backup camera. A backup camera is something I have never had before and will have a tough time parting with when I get another vehicle. The ultimate deciding factor as to why I got my Toyota Yaris was the gas mileage it got and the price and monthly payment I received along with it. I do not believe I will ever buy any other brand other than Toyota for these reasons.

The car is brand new, push to start and has a touch screen. The seats are blue and the car is nicely compact. The only thing is that sometimes, the touch screen system is not calibrated correctly. Also, two months after I purchased my car, my tire pressure light went on and had to be reset. Toyota has great customer service and my services are free for the next five years. I drive a lot for work so they did not put a mileage cap on my service. The vehicle also has a "sport" feature that is good when driving on the highway. Good gas mileage as well. I fill up my tank about twice a month. Overall, good, reliable vehicle.

I got the Yaris IA about a month ago. Its an awesome car. I get 300 miles to a ten gallon tank of gas. This not only saves me money but helps decrease polluting the air. The car is a lot of fun to drive and if someone tries calling me the phone rings on the car so I do not have to pick up a cell phone or try holding it and driving. Much safer. Cruise control is great and the car has a sports car setting which really does not matter to me but I am sure a lot of other people would enjoy that. It is a bit funny looking in front, kind of devilish. That is so far so good it is been great to have.
