Key Facts

The entire range is noted for its reliability and spaciousness. In terms of price, the hybrid models tend to be the most expensive, although any extra expense can begin to be made up by savings on fuel costs. Used you’re looking at around £6,000 all the way up to over £12,000.

Toyota was one of the first off the blocks with a hybrid engine via its famous Prius, and that technology has been carried through into the Yaris despite this greener engine option being quite rare among superminis of this age. That 1.5-litre petrol hybrid can also produce a little under 100bhp, which is impressive.

Why buy a TOYOTA Yaris?

The Yaris’s main strengths lie in its money saving capabilities and in its surprisingly spacious interior, while it’s also a well-made little run-around.

Competitively priced, the Yaris offers up a whole host of reasons to look beyond all the other cars in its class. Although a 1.5 litre engine that puts out a bit under 100bhp, doesn’t sound like a lot of power, but in a car that’s as light as the Yaris, you’ll really feel it pull off the line.

Something reliable: Toyota Yaris TR

Something reliable: Toyota Yaris TR

The TR does a lot of things well – from being comfortable and spacious, to actually being quite quick off the line, especially with the 1.4 litre engine models and above.

While it may not be pushing the limits of in-car technology, you can expect to reach over 65mpg on motorways, while you’ll also find that it’s very cheap in terms of road tax.

A sportier model: Toyota Yaris SR

A sportier model: Toyota Yaris SR

If you’re looking for a Yaris from Toyota’s previous Yaris range which has a sporty element about it, then the SR is the one to go for.

Coming complete with some impressive trim in the cabin, the car’s best traits still lie in the impressive fuel economy – upwards of 50mpg – and the generous amount of space inside.

A step up from the original: Toyota Yaris T Spirit

A step up from the original: Toyota Yaris T Spirit

Hitting the scene in the last decade, the T Spirit was Toyota’s successful attempt to revamp and improve the first incarnation of the Yaris.

While it pays homage to the original in its styling and shape, you get a lot more interior space with the T Spirit and a bigger boot too. Overall, it’s a very practical car that can still give the modern Yaris models a run for their money.

What are the Alternatives?

For a great drive: Ford Fiesta

For a great drive: Ford Fiesta

The Fiesta has been one of the leading lights in the small hatchback market for years. It’s practical, offers sizeable value for money, and for its size, has plenty of space in the back.

However, the top-of-the-range models are slightly pricier than the equivalent Yaris. For example, you’re looking at around £13,000 and upwards for a Fiesta ST.


A close match: Suzuki Swift

A close match: Suzuki Swift

The Swift can compete against the Yaris when it comes to being cheap to buy and run, with both cars succeeding in this area. The Swift’s average price on the used market is also similar to the Yaris.

It’s a car which is noted for its sharp handling, although you may need to opt for a Swift with the 1.6 litre engine installed in order to really have some performance off the line.


A cheaper choice: Skoda Fabia

A cheaper choice: Skoda Fabia

With prices starting at slightly cheaper amounts, the Fabia is a viable alternative to the Yaris. You can pick up a base model from the used market for around the £6,000 mark, although if you’re looking for a sportier Fabia such as the Monte Carlo, you can expect to pay £7,000 and upwards.
