Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I wanted a small yet sporty looking car that is still economical and has plenty of toys to keep me occupied.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all really like it, most people don't think it's a Yaris when they first see it!

Would you buy this car again and why?
I definitly would, but preferebly one with a faster engine when I come to give this one back after the 3 year finance term. Give it a 1.6 turbo petrol engine and this car would be immense :).

What are you likely to buy next?
Maybe an Auris SR depending on the available Yaris engines at the time.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Amazingly grippy and poised in corners. It doesn't have the fastest engine but it is more than capable of overtaking when needed, and being economical when not. Traction control and VSC does the job really well.

What's it like to park?
A doddle with the tiny turning circle and reverse parking camera!

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
I managed to break the driver seat adjustment after like 3 days, being fixed under warrenty. Apart from that everything is perfect.

What's most practical about your car?
Ample sapce inside, radio and bluetooth controls on the steering wheel are always helpful. And the reverse parking camera is great fun!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Reverse poarking camera, touch screen media system w/ bluetooth.
