Toyota Yaris

The Toyota Yaris small hatchback is the current of a long line of its type under the Toyota brand.

Known as the Echo to Australia upon its late 1990s introduction, the Toyota Yaris is a successor to the Starlet small hatchback, and has also been known in other markets as the Toyota Vitz.

The 2021 Toyota Yaris range, which marks a new generation for Australia, starts from just above $22,000, which is then topped by the approximately $32,000 Yaris ZR Hybrid. A hot hatch version, the Toyota GR Yaris, is coming to Australia soon.

Toyota has placed the Yaris' new pricing higher than rivals like the Suzuki Swift, Kia Rio, or Mazda 2, and even the more premium-focused Volkswagen Polo, though its level of features even at entry level is high.

Is the Toyota Yaris safe?

The Toyota Yaris has a five-star safety rating from ANCAP (Australasian New Car Assessment Program) and scores relatively highly across all tested categories. It is fitted with active safety systems such as autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane keep assist.

How much does a new automatic Toyota Yaris cost?

The $22,130 base price for the Toyota Yaris includes a six-speed manual gearbox, and the CVT automatic gearbox is an additional $1500.

How many litres of fuel does a Toyota Yaris take?

The 2020 Toyota Yaris is equipped with a 44-litre fuel tank, though hybrid models have a slightly smaller 36-litre tank.

Is the Toyota Yaris reliable?

The Toyota Yaris is one of the cars that has helped secure the brand's image of reliability, with very few anecdotes of unreliable Yarises forthcoming.
