2019 Toyota Yaris Introduction

The Toyota Yaris is a subcompact sedan with excellent fuel economy, zippy acceleration, an excellent automatic or manual 6-speed transmission, proven reliability, nimble handling with a compliant ride, adequate interior room, and a low price.

It’s been restyled recently, and for 2019, Toyota has dropped the hatchback edition. The 2019 Yaris also gets automatic emergency braking as standard equipment, a rarity among subcompact cars.

The Yaris uses a smooth and over-achieving 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine with direct injection. It’s made by Mazda, and delivers 106 horsepower while it returns 35 combined miles per gallon. It’s EPA-rated at 32/40/35 mpg with the automatic and 30/39/34 mpg with the manual.

As for safety, the NHTSA gives it five stars overall, a top score for subcompacts. The only thing that keeps the IIHS from giving it the Top Safety Pick nod is the quality of its headlights.
