If you are looking for a sporty addition to your daily driving, then you’ll probably want to check out the 2019 Toyota Yaris. No, you aren’t going crazy, it used to be called the Yaris iA, but it’s just the Yaris now. You’ll be looking at 3 exciting trims; the L, LE, and XLE.
This subcompact vehicle has a 1.5L DOHC 4cyl engine that has an estimated 32 miles per gallon in the city and 40 mpg on the highway*, which gives it 35 mpg combined. It also has 2 different transmission options; a 6-speed manual transmission, which is standard, or the 6-speed automatic transmission. If you choose the manual transmission, you’ll be looking at 30 mpg in the city and 39 on the highway*, which is 34 mpg combined. For power, the Yaris has 106 hp and 103 lb.-ft. of torque.
Speaking of sporty vehicles, you’ll have a rear lip spoiler and available integrated fog lights to add to the distinct exterior design of the Yaris, which is only amplified by the all-new honeycomb grille. The 2019 Yaris has some pretty cool color options—and no, we don’t just mean that for the all-new Icicle color. You can also get the Yaris in Frost, Chromium, Graphite, Pulse, Sapphire, and Stealth.
Technology features include a 7-inch touchscreen that has voice recognition and Bluetooth connectivity. You’ll also have a standard backup camera and a 6-speaker sound system. You’ll also have some standard safety features like the Active Safety System, which includes things like Brake Assist, Brake Over-Ride System, and Dynamic Stability Control. Driver-assist features include the Low-Speed Pre-Collision System.
