The Yaris was Car of the year in 1999, but the T-Sport - the quickest version - wasn't launched until 2001. Although it's the sportiest model in the Yaris line-up, it doesn't quite cut it as a wannabe rally car.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

4 out of 5

The Yaris was Car of the year in 1999, but the T-Sport - the quickest version - wasn't launched until 2001. Although it's the sportiest model in the Yaris line-up, it doesn't quite cut it as a wannabe rally car. Instead it sports subtly enhanced body modifications and stronger performance, but certainly not in the hot hatch league. A good choice for those seeking the compact dimensions and dependability of the Yaris with enough oomph to cope with the cut and thrust of motorway and out of town driving.

But thrill seekers should look elsewhere.

What owners say...

 Pleanty of cubby holes and sliding rear seats to trade off between leg room and boot space.

 Almost MPG average despite pushing it quite hard a lot of the time.

 Upright cabin is roomy for a car of its size, and sliding rear seats are useful when a bigger boot is needed.
