2012 Toyota Yaris LE 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 4A)
I've only had my new 2012 Yaris 3 DR LE a couple of weeks but so far I am impressed.
Has good visibility: sits a little higher than my 2001 Corolla LE - gas mileage pretty good, according to the display I'm averaging 33 mpg, all city driving...Driver's seat very comfortable.
I love the design of the dashboard/controls, all easy to reach and good-sized control knobs.
The two-tone dash (black and soft grey) looks expensive and instead of being perfectly smooth it has a little bit of texture to it.
Mine is the Wave Line Pearl color, a light blue.
Tire are pretty good quality, Goodyear Assurance.
I haven't sat in the rear yet but it looks to be fairly roomy.
Handling is good.
Styling - both exterior and interior.
Radio controls on the left side of steering wheel.
Controls are trimmed in chrome.
The LE does not have a tachometer, not sure I really need one, just not used to not having one.
Not crazy about the zig-zag shift lever (more of a stair-step) but I'm getting used to it.
The shift lever knob could be larger.
