Fuel economy

Hybrid petrol engines 57.7 - 68.9 mpg
  • Up to 68.9mpg
  • No diesel model
  • Only one power output

This section is nice and short. There are no diesels on offer at all, neither manuals. That means there's only a 1.5-litre hybrid automatic. Official fuel consumption ranges from 65.7-68.9mpg, while official CO2 figures range from 92g/km to 98g/km.

These are strong numbers - and with good backing too. On a two and a half hour test route of motorway, town, and b-road driving we found these kinds of numbers are achievable.

For a bit of perspective, the outgoing Yaris Hybrid claims a combined cycle mpg of 64.5mpg, and a CO2 score of 109g/km. For a bit more perspective, the Peugeot 208 will crack an official 71.4mpg - but using a diesel engine. While Renault's new hybrid engine is good for an official 64.2mpg.

Reliability

  • Hard to judge this new car
  • Lots of shared tech
  • New engine and hybrid tech

As the car is virtually all new, it's impossible to say confidently what the reliability will be like. However, the Yaris is backed up by one of the best guarantees in the business - Toyota's five-year /100,000 mile warranty.
