The new 2013 Toyota Yaris is a small car that stands out for being very efficient, stylish, and relatively inexpensive. You can buy it at the closest Toyota dealership for under $15,000 dollars. This economical and fun hatchback has a bold and extrovert style and was manufactured by the Japanese brand with young people in mind.


The progressive evolution that has starred its models, and not too high prices, are the factors that have helped Toyota to consolidate itself as the manufacturer able to sell more vehicles than any other in a whole year.

Among other things, the first generation of the Toyota Yaris was sold from 2007 through 2011. It came to the market as a two-door hatchback, a four-door hatchback, or a four-door sedan. In 2013 Toyota made a serious effort to ensure that these hatchbacks have a remarkable difference from the previous version of the sedan. As such, it has a different instrument panel that is nearly 8 inches longer and also has a longer wheelbase. This means more space for rear passengers. Toyota currently offers the subcompact Yaris as a hatchback with two or four doors. There is no sedan version.

Good review John, as you just said, the exterior design is now much more modern and youthful. The rounded shapes of previous edition disappeared and gave rise to new angular lines that are responsible for transmitting a more aggressive and sporty appearance. Also, its length has been increased and its height has been reduced, changes that make the Yaris look wider and with greater presence.

The current generation of the Toyota Yaris has become one of the best options to opt for a city car. Despite the intense competition in the segment, Toyota continues to stand out above other models.

In terms of safety as standard equipment brings nine air bags, stability control (VSC), traction control (TRAC), Anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution (EBD) and brake assist. Also, the seats have been designed to avoid heavy blows to the neck and its structure was designed to absorb impacts. My 2 cents smiley
Just be baby.

In a segment where competition has become brutal and where the Ford Fiesta is at the top, and following are the Honda Fit, Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent, Chevrolet Sonic, and Mazda 2, the Yaris is progressing in this minefield, with the unique warranty that it is a Toyota, that is it.

I think that the presence of low quality materials and finishes, play a role against the Yaris in this the competition. The good thing is that this strong competition among the vehicles on this segment, is leading them to a higher level or tell me if you don't think that the Ford Fiesta 2013 is too much better and cheaper by the way
I love my Ford Mustand!

Great article John. You just forgot to mention that the Yaris 2013 has a EPA fuel efficiency of 37 MPG on highways and 30 MPG within the city. What I most like about it is that it comes with 9 airbags, it is super safe.

The first Yaris generation  was ok, but the subcompact segment has become ever more competitive as its rivals offer more refinement, a greater utility and a more enjoyable driving. This latest version of the Toyota Yaris has several improvements in key areas, which put it hand in hand with the competition. This small vehicle as I see, is more attractive to those looking for a practical and economical transportation. And as I always say, "Toyota is Toyota" and that is a good reason to buy it over its rivals.
Best car deals and a lot of affordable pre-owned vehicle available! Love it!

These little toy cars are great for those living in big cities like Los Angeles or New York, for traveling or high speed high ways they suck, too unstable.
