2011 Toyota Yaris
Review, Prices, Comparisons, Pictures
The 2011 Toyota Yaris has remained essentially unchanged in comparison to its 2010 model year. However, there are several features of the current Yaris model that are worth noting.
The 2011 Toyota Yaris is available in three body styles: a three door hatchback, a five door hatchback, and a four door sedan. Generally, the Yaris's sporty, unconventional hatchbacks are the most popular body type amongst consumers, who appreciate the vehicle's individuality and spryness. However, the basic features of all three body styles are virtually identical. The main differences between the hatchbacks and the sedan stem from the size and handling of each car.
There are no specialized trim packages for any 2011 Toyota Yaris model. All Yaris cars come equipped with a reasonable amount of standard features, such as air conditioning, four-way adjustable seats, and a basic audio system. Higher-end amenities, such as keyless entry, satellite radio, an iPod-compatible stereo system, and cruise control, can be added on to the vehicle at an additional cost. Some features can be purchased in group amenity sets at a discount to the consumer.
The 2011 Toyota Yaris's fuel efficiency is by far its most attractive feature. The Yaris can typically achieve a combined fuel economy of roughly 32 MPG with a manual transmission, or 31 MPG with an automatic transmission. This is equal or superior to other comparable economy cars such as the Ford Fiesta or the Honda Fit. Environmentally-conscious or budget-minded car buyers will be impressed with the Yaris's sparing use of gas.
The Toyota Yaris is certainly an excellent choice when searching for economy cars. Although the vehicle is far from perfect, the 2011 Toyota Yaris will certainly meet the needs of almost any typical commuter in regards to safety, fuel economy, and general vehicle performance.
