With the segment growing in leaps and and the Echo having reached its Toyota has put all its effort into Yaris a stand-out for buyers. The new is slightly bigger than and brings more cabin, and storage space.

Safety has taken bigger with ABS now standard and an inexpensive pack introducing the segment’s knee airbags also There are more features for the across the range, which of three model lines YRS and YRX), each available in or five-door form.

Under the there are less advances. The 1.3 and 1.5-litre fours have retained, albeit with improvements, and the suspension is an evolution of the orthodox set-up.

We tested the mid-range YRS three-door which costs $16,790 and the 1.5-litre engine, 15-inch telescopic steering adjustment models offer only and leather-shod steering wheel. Our car also had Toyota’s enhanced pack, which adds curtain and knee airbags for

For cabin packaging, design and the Yaris rates highly. The seating, expansive dash and windscreen create an overwhelming of space.

But seat comfort and are nothing to rave about and the dash is sullied slightly by the annoying, flickery digital we disliked on the Echo.

Despite less than four long, the Yaris has impressive seating, with width, leg and head space to comfortably two average-sized adults. However, space, while better before, is meagre and all-round is no match for rivals such as Jazz.

With maximum power and of 80 kW and 141 Nm respectively, the Yaris ranks the top of the segment for on-paper performance.
