This is a nice looking car, it looks somehow like a sports car. But dont get misled. The Yaris driving is less inspired than many others. Driving position is simply wrong: the steering is too far for taller drivers compared with any other car on the market, therefore driving pleasure and feeling are much reduced. Good front visibility but dangerous blind spots on the sides. Excellent build quality, however the paint chips easily. Very poor clutch conception, hard to engage smoothly or quickly, automatic transmission its a must for this car. Gas mileage is less than expected, especially in city driving.
Interior space, build quality and reliability, how it looks.
Driving position should absolutely be corrected. Would like better shock quality, better clutch quality.
