This kind of subtle difference may not impact you but, if you're in any way interested in quickness and responsiveness, the Yaris might fail to impress. I should have researched this before I made the purchase, but even if I had, I think I would have gone with the Yaris anyway. Our Take on the 2008 Toyota Yaris Editor's note: This review was written in May 2006 about the sedan version of the 2007 Toyota Yaris. The trunk is a great size for a four door car and I have never had a problem on snlw or ice. Resale is where you really win with a Toyota.
More notably, the Yaris Sedan offers four-way adjustable front seats with driver's seat height adjustment, something not usually found in the subcompact segment. To be fair, the standard list does include driver and front passenger airbags, air conditioning, power steering, tilt steering wheel and color-keyed mirrors and door handles. The Yaris is offered as a hatchback and a sedan. A Great Value I had a lot of negative equity in my previous car. However, they also find that though tightly assembled, the Toyota skimps inside in both seating comfort and materials.
Be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price before you buy to find out what smart buyers are really paying for this vehicle in your area. I didn't even bother looking into the windows because I figured the issue would be the same. But don't expect this car to merge quickly. Many drivers found the driving position flawed. Unlike its other vehicles that first launch outside the U.
The four-door Yaris Sedan styling seems rather traditional at first glance. Absolutely wonderful person and experience. Either will deliver excellent fuel economy and a very good ride, although handling is sloppy and unforgiving at its limits. I was so taking back by lack of professionalism and no communication among each other. Used Yaris' are going for more than we paid new.
Cup holders took a little to get use to. All of the cars had no problems. Gas lasts forever and its cheap to fill. The 2008 Toyota Yaris Liftback has unimpressive safety ratings—even when equipped with the optional side airbags. I'm in my mid twenties and love mine. Allow yourself some time, it's only 107 ponies! This is especially true in the case of the Toyota Yaris.
The Yaris hatch and sedan both drive exactly the same, their only differences are size, options and practicality. Also the strips on either side of roof which run front to back. Fuel efficiency is the best in the segment, according to Toyota, and with its tight turning radius and good maneuverability the Yaris makes a very frugal city commuter. The turning radius is a tight 32. Otherwise, most reviewers appreciate the interior design in the Yaris. For instance, on the base Yaris model, no radio of any sort is included as standard equipment and, on all models, front-side and side-curtain airbags are optional.
The Yaris is expected to retain a better-than-average resale value over time, higher than the but slightly less than the Honda Fit. This is my first Toyota car. Toyota's Yaris arrives just in time to compete with several new and upgraded fuel-efficient subcompact models, filling a rejuvenated category that once appealed only to the frugal — or the broke. Standard equipment on both models includes air conditioning, tilt steering, and intermittent wipers. This design has become a cost-savings device among international vehicles, because it allows easy production changes when the driver's side is placed on one side or the other depending upon where the car is being sold. As a tall person who usually finds the steering wheel partially blocking the speedometer, I actually found the center-mount speedo an improvement.
The only trouble I had was when a part wore out from age. Originally bought to be a commuter car. Go test drive one and you'll be hooked. However, the dealer was very much dismissive to the idea of me rectifying the situation. I've never been more happier.
Everything is simply laid out and easy to understand. But you can't beat the sticker price brand new, the gas mileage, resale value or reliability of Toyota. The Yaris replaces the Echo, which missed the mark from the moment it hit salesrooms in 2000, appealing more to seniors than to the young drivers it was aimed at. A five-speed manual transmission is standard and a four-speed automatic is optional across the line. Major safety features such as anti-lock brakes and side impact airbags may be ordered optionally, but electronic stability control is not offered on the 2008 Toyota Yaris Liftback.
