Toyota Yaris

(2011 - 2020)

The Toyota Yaris is a small supermini-class five-door hatchback. The current model was originally launched back in 2011 but has seen major updates in both 2014 and 2017. It is due to be replaced by an all-new model in summer 2020.

The Yaris is currently unique in the supermini class for being available with a hybrid power option, which has become the most popular version of the model. Toyota no longer offers a diesel Yaris due to falling demand.

The Toyota Yaris has generally received average to good scores from most UK media sources, with the hybrid power unit being better regarded than the regular petrol versions.
