Flimsy rear parcel shelf

If ever there was a time when the argument for buying a small car is strong, it is now. With fuel costs escalating out of control & the credit crunch biting more & more people are downsizing to smaller cars as they make more economic sense. When I used to work at a busy car dealership I drove...

Great price and great extras

Engine is a bit sluggish.

The Toyota Motor Corporation is currently ranked number 2 in the world motor market in terms of sales. It recently superseded Ford, who were number 2 before Toyota, last year and if current trends continue, the Toyota Motor Corporation will become number 1 in the world beating General Motors into...

“More Car For Less Pennies”

published 08/08/2001

Price and high specification.

Still a "small" car, for all its innovation.

~ ~ I’ve a fair few mates and colleagues who have bought the Toyota Yaris over the past while, some as run-arounds, and others as “second” cars. This car competes in the same lucrative sector as the Ford Ka, the Seat Arosa, and the Volkswagen Lupo, but in my honest opinion beats...

I bought my Yaris in May 2000 and have been pleasantly surprised by it's performance. My previous car was a Honda Civic - the sporty looking type and very low to the ground. It was my second Civic and whilst I had absolutely no problems with it, and was happy with it's performance, I found...

Good little runabout, fun car to drive

Tinny sounding, Lack of seat adjustment

What can I say, I have been a Yaris driver since I could afford my first car back in 2000. I bought my latest Yaris in May 2005 and have just hit the 30,000 mile mark. So, let's get the bad points over with first: Tinny - compared with my first Yaris (model year 2000) this second one post re...

Drives terribly, terrible to reverse

When an Ambulance dinted my little Renault Clio I was pleased when my insurance offered me a hire car. I was even more excited when I was told that my hire car was going to be a 1.3 automatic Toyota Yaris. It had been a long time since I had driven an automatic and I had always liked the look of...

“Yaris”

Excellent fuel economy

Road Noise

Toyota Yaris (Colour Collection) 2005 Annual Milage: Low/Average Introduction The Toyota Yaris is one of Britain's top selling small cars. The reason for this is self evident when you climb into one for the first time. The car is quite tall and you get a very commanding view of the road from your...

The Auto gearbox takes getting used to.

First let me tell you where I come from. My other car is a Land Rover 110 V8 County Station Wagon. It's very big. Drives like a lorry. I use it as a mobile skip. Then I developed Multiple sclerosis. I needed a small car to get my freedom back, to commute to the railway station, to be economical...

We researched the small automatic car market for many months before finally purchasing this Yaris 1.3 Auto CDX through a car supermarket (Motorpoint), and thus saving approximately £2400 on main dealer prices. While the Yaris has been around for a few years now it holds its own still in the...

MULTI-MODE TRANSMISSION

After many years of happy motoring with various Rover models, 'She who must be conveyed' and I decided a change was called for. The reason for this momentous decision was three-fold. Firstly we were downsizing, secondly leg problems dictated that automatic transmission must be considered and...

I bought my Toyota yaris 1.3 vvt-i in April of last year so have been forming my opinion since. Importantly this opinion is a most positive one. I had always rather fancied a Yaris, something about the little japanese cars that appealed. So not being overly flush I invested in an eclipse black...

I have owned my Toyota Yaris 1.3 Vvti cdx auto for nearly a year now and I am very pleased with it. The choices for a small car with automatic gearbox are pretty limited. The toyota wins for me because of the innovative design features (such as the movable rear seat which allows more boot space...

I drove this car for the first time about a week ago when I got sent out on an errand at work. Previously I had never really liked the look of the Yaris, but the 20-minute drive to pick up some parts for work really opened my eyes. Interior – This has got to be one of the best points about...

I bought this car from a dealer in Holland, so saved a bit of money. The only difference to the UK car is no rear spoiler. Overall this a superb car, very well engineered and well designed in every respect. The star wars style instrument panel is very state of the art. Everything is displayed in...
