Japanese meets European in the 2016 Toyota Yaris - a subcompact hatchback that has a lot to offer consumers. Though virtually unchanged for 2016, it continues to offer maneuverability around crowded streets and efficiency with solid fuel numbers.
The 2016 Yaris can be found in two- or four-door hatchback and in three nicely equipped trim levels. Standard on the base L trim, you-ll find 15-inch steel wheels, halogen headlights, power door locks and windows, height-adjustable driver seat and split-folding rear seat. Electronics are above average for a base trim, featuring Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, six-speaker Entune audio system with 6.1-inch touchscreen, CD player, HD radio, auxiliary audio jack and USB/iPod interface.
The mid-level LE adds some styling perks, alongside equipment upgrades. Added are power side mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control, metallic interior accents and chrome interior door handles. Wheels switch to 15-inch alloy.
The most content is obviously found in the top SE, so if you-re looking for extras like fog lamps, projector-beam headlights and rear spoiler, this trim is for you.
Overall, the Yaris is fairly simple. This also rings true for its interior that offers ease of use. For instance, gauges are minimal and the speedometer is large and easy to read at a glance. Tech features are also user-friendly with its touchscreen interface, Bluetooth with audio streaming capability and USB input.
In keeping with its simple and practical nature, the Yaris doesn-t features all of the bells and whistles in terms of extra safety features. But, it does, of course, come with all of the must haves to keep you safe on the road. It includes antilock brakes, traction and stability control, active front head restraints, front-seat side airbag, front and rear side curtain airbags, front-seat cushion airbag and driver knee airbag.
As a subcompact hatchback, the Yaris is obviously a smaller vehicle than most. But, this doesn-t mean there is a lack of space. In fact, space is adequate throughout and even adults will be easily satisfied sitting in the backseat. One impressive feature of the Yaris is its excellent outward visibility, which ups safety and makes for an overall easy-to-drive vehicle.
