I have never owned a Toyota, all Chevrolets except my latest which is a Jeep. I bought the Yaris to park my Chevy truck because gas was killing me. Roomy car appears small until you sit in it. Very peppy and fun to drive with the manual transmission. I am thoroughly impressed.
Center dash and storage areas. Used like a small truck hauling a new lawnmower in back with rear seat folded down. Great gas mileage!
