Used Toyota Yaris Hatchback (2006 - 2011) Review

Review by Tim Bowdler on

Toyota’s Yaris has always been a decent, if not great, alternative for those in the market for Ford Fiesta-sized car. Majoring in bulletproof reliability, a spacious well-built cabin and strong range of economical engines, the small Yaris has some of the lowest running costs in its class.

Toyota’s Yaris has always been a decent, if not great, alternative for those in the market for Ford Fiesta-sized car. Majoring in bulletproof reliability, a spacious well-built cabin and strong range of economical engines, the small Yaris has some of the lowest running costs in its class. Buy new and the Toyota will also doggedly hold its value. In 2010 the whole Yaris range was spruced up with the addition of an all-new 1.33-litre engine that offers stop start in congested traffic.

 The build quality has been as good as the day I got it with 7k on the clock. The MPG has never declined either. The tiny size makes for it be super at whizzing around town and fitting into tiny...
