Fun to drive & great mileage too!

2008 Toyota Yaris S 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
After having several new Toyotas of all sizes, the Yaris 2D Hatch is the most fun to drive. I road tested the competitors and none handled as well, or were rated as high in mileage. This car rides very comfortably and the small turning circle makes it a real pleasure to manuver around in town. I've had mine 6 weeks and average 36 mpg in city only driving. A 300 mile trip on the freeway returned 42 mpg @ 70mph. The interior is very well thought out with lots of cup holders, 3 gloveboxes, & many small storage areas. Mine has the sport seats which have high grade material and are very supportive & comfortable. I could not be happier with my new 2008 Yaris.
Great acceleration for an economy car. Nice styling and alloy wheels. I'm 6'2" tall and find the interior very roomy, with the sport seats. Great handling and fun to drive.
