Pros: Penny-pinching prices; great close-quarters maneuverability; decent selection of available features

Cons: Weak acceleration; high noise levels; not as fun to drive as most subcompact-class rivals

CG Says: For 2017 Toyota Yaris gains standard Toyota Safety Sense-C which includes: pre-collision system, lane-departure warning, and automatic headlights. On its own, the Yaris is a pleasant subcompact that will more than meet the needs of shoppers in this class. It’s decently roomy and pretty reasonably priced. Unfortunately, when you put the Yaris up against its contemporaries, it falls a bit flat. Rival subcompacts best it in a variety of areas, from passenger and cargo flexibility to noise suppression and overall refinement. Don’t discount this Toyota entirely, but be sure to test drive the competition first.
