Cool little car
By Phil on


2008 Toyota Yaris 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl 4A)


This is an exceptional little car. Nimble, smooth, comfortable and quiet. Peppy at city speeds and adequate on the freeway. Engine noise typical for the class, but road and wind noise are hushed. Front seats very comfortable, though steering wheel a bit too far from driver. Large trunk. Adequate leg room in back seat for a 6-footer. Center gauges not a problem. Stylish interior. We liked the Honda Fit, but thunderous road noise and slow acceleration were deal breakers. Yaris somehow felt more solid and substantial. Professional car reviewers are enthusiasts and write reviews from that perspective. We found many of their complaints to be exaggerated or bogus. Give this car a test drive.

Best Features

Reliability, comfort, ride quality, muted road & wind noise, fuel economy, decent acceleration for class, side-impact safety ratings w/side airbags. Came loaded w/everything except alloy wheels.

Worst Features

Short-person driving position, engine noise, lacks interior versatility of 5-door hatchbacks.
