Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 40 - 41 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Relatively cheap to buy, given the build quality, and holds its value reasonably well. Fuel economy isn’t bad but can’t match that of lesser models. Insurance is a commendable group 9. Servicing is competitive and parts are reasonably priced.

Yaris performs well on the eco front. With an average of 164 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are relatively low for a super mini hatchback. It’s worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is also fairly economical, averaging 41 mpg.

Toyotas are generally faultless to the delight of most owners. Some problems reported with soft paint and stone chips, but that’s all. But a good reputation is no reason to be careless when buying – check any car thoroughly and take a test drive.
