2015 Toyota Yaris SE

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 2015, the Toyota Yaris gets an all-around refresh that includes an exterior styling facelift, reinforced body structure, retuned suspension, and a freshened interior. 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.
