Excellent Gas Mileage
By ToyoYari on


2008 Toyota Yaris 2dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl 5M)


Traded in my gas hungry SUV for a blue Toyota Yaris Liftback. Trips to the gas station have not been as many. The little bars that indicate the amount of gas that is left move down very slowly. Inside it does not feel as small as it looks on the outside. The sound system is more than enough and there is even a jack on the lower console to plug in an MP3 player, pretty awesome. The back seat is kept folded down so there is always plenty of cargo space to toss stuff in the back. The engine is fairly quiet for a small car with plenty of pep to make it move in city traffic and on the highway.

Best Features

There are storage bins everywhere you look making it easy to keep things organized and clutter free. Brakes work well even on wet slippery roads. Seatbelts are comfortable and do not have the tendency to climb up your chest.

Worst Features

Driving long distances can be a challenge as you keep shifting to find a new comfortable position. The huge windshield lets to see out clearly though you cannot see the hood and it feels kind of strange like there is no front end. The rear window is small but the rear wiper keeps it clean.
