2007 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)
Dubbed "The Yar-mobile" by co-workers, everyone including myself is surprised by the amount of room in this hatchback. Going from a Ford Explorer to the Yaris I feel quite comfortable, however my hauling days are over. After my first fillup I get 35.2 MPG city only driving. This car has met all my expectations! I couldn't imagine spending less than $20K (CAD) and getting more bang for the buck in any other vehicle. This is my first Toyota and I am very impressed.
Very comfortable, great handling around corners. Love the large cup holders. Nice interior trim. Good acceleration. Lots of storage compartments. Very easy to get used to the centre console.
Rear seats don't fold completely flat to make a smooth transition with the trunk. A telescopic steering wheel would be more comfortable to tall drivers. Wheel "bump" next to the clutch is too close for large feet. Back window is a little small.
