The 2017 Toyota Yaris Remains the Subcompact Choice

2017 Toyota Yaris

A punchy 4-Cylinder and a host of advanced safety and technology features elevate the 2017 Toyota Yaris above what buyers might expect. A capable and comfortable cruiser on the highway, the Yaris is a diminutive but undaunted sub compact hatchback that refuses to be left behind.

Surprising interior room, a high-quality build, and spirited driving characteristics describe the Yaris, putting it in line with much more expensive vehicles.

Performance of the Yaris is Fun

Coming in four models, in either a 3-door or 5-door configuration, the Yaris possesses a 1.4L-Cylinder engine producing 106hp and 103lb-ft as the sole powertrain. To shift the Yaris into gear, drivers have a choice of a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed Electronically Controlled Automatic Transmission.

Handling is more than satisfying in the Toyota Yaris due in part to the standard Sport Tuned MacPherson strut front suspension and rear torsion bar.

Aiding drivability is Sport Tuned Electric Power Steering that is standard in the 2017 Yaris.

Restyled Exterior and Roomy Yaris Interior

The European inspired exterior of the Yaris is sleek and aerodynamic. The Yaris also possesses Toyota’s wide open grille design with black air fins, which adds a strong contrast in area of the bumper. The interior is sports styled with available white stitched seats, leather trimmed steering wheel and shift lever. The instrument panel is organized in a simple but modern manner. It also makes good use of available space by stacking various compartments and function knobs vertically.      

Extra Emphasis on Safety in the 2017 Toyota Yaris

The 2017 Toyota Yaris shines and delivers beyond measure in safety. Toyota must recognize the importance of delivering a strong safety platform in a smaller vehicle because in the Yaris, it is al there.

Nine advanced air bags protect the front and sides of the front passengers. Front and side curtain airbags complete the package. Highlighting the Yaris’s standard safety features is Toyota’s Safety Sense™, an extra protection system previously offered only is Toyota’s higher end models.

Also, standard in the Yaris is the Star Safety System. It enhances the overall safety of the Yaris with Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Smart Stop Technology.

Technology in the Yaris is in Line with more Expensive Options

Everything today’s hi-tech driver requires is standard in the Yaris. Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity, HD Radio™ technology, and Toyota’s Entune™ Audio are all standard. Entune™ comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, and has voice recognition. A USB port and auxiliary input jack are also standard.
