  • Decent electric powertrain
  • Comfortable ride
  • Decent infotainment system
  • Nothing in particular

Summary

The latest Yaris is right in the mix, and should be on the shortlist of any supermini buyer. It may ultimately end up being trumped by the Fiesta on driving dynamics and the Clio on space, but its hybrid powertrain feels mightily efficient in the right conditions.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

Rundown

Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The original Yaris arrived in 1999 with an almost comically curvaceous body and an instrument binnacle playfully skewed towards the centre of the dashboard. For a small car, the Yaris had an image problem, and Toyota tried but mostly failed to remedy this by over-styling subsequent iterations. Even the entry-level Icon, on 16in wheels, looks decently memorable – fun, even – although well it might for £19,910.

Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
The latest Toyota Yaris is right in the mix, and should be on the shortlist of any supermini buyer – especially those who do most of their driving around town. It may ultimately end up being trumped by the Fiesta on driving dynamics and the Clio on space, but its hybrid powertrain feels mightily efficient in the right conditions. UK buyers are being offered four trim levels, if you discount the limited-run Launch Edition.

It costs from £29,995, rising to £33,495 with the Circuit Pack fitted.
