“We do like the Yaris’s standard features, which include a touchscreen with a user-friendly tech interface, lane departure warning, and a system that can detect if a forward crash is imminent and automatically apply the brakes if the driver doesn’t take suitable action.”

For the first time ever, the Toyota Yaris now comes standard with Toyota Safety Sense™ C (TSS-C). Unusual for a car in the subcompact economy car segment, this advanced safety suite includes such sophisticated features as a Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Departure Alert (LDA), and Automatic High Beams (AHB). This systems uses advanced sensors, cameras, and audio-visual warnings to help keep you safe and alert.

Even the most basic version of the Toyota Yaris comes standard with a 6.1-inch touchscreen interface with the Entune infotainment system installed. This high-resolution interface includes Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, HD radio, and a USB input and iPod interface that lets you connect directly to your music.

Kelley Blue Book

“If you want a small, inexpensive, efficient, and easy-to-drive compact car that touts advanced safety features, the Yaris checks all the right boxes. Its hatchback design means added practicality and cargo room, while strong records of reliability and resale value further its appeal.”

The Toyota Yaris beats out the typical subcompact sedan because of its hatchback body style. While you’ll have seating for up to five passengers and a total interior volume of 99.7 cubic feet, you’ll also get 15.3 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space and a split folding bench seat in back that gives you easy, quick access to a lot more storage space whenever necessary.
