I tried all the small fuel sipper cars before buying a Yaris Sedan. The price/performance/features won the battle for my dollar. Although the Yaris is a very inexpensive auto, it is by no means cheaply made. I'm totally enjoying it!
Seats are comfortable. Manual transmission/engine is zippy. Fit and finish is excellent. Nice trunk size.
I like the center guages, but would love to see toyota put a holograph on the windshield (in front of the driver) with just the speedometer read out. That would eliminate glancing over to monitor speed. All the other things you monitor are infrequent. I think the cupholders could be improved upon
