Flexible Seat Adjustments The Yaris Sedan provides four-way adjustable front seats and fold-down rear seats that provide nearly 13 cubic feet of cargo space. This is enough power to tool around town, but maybe not enough to take a chance at passing a Mack truck on a two-way highway with an oncoming car in sight. There is a light, almost effortless feel to the Yaris in steering and during moderate acceleration; however, the engine seems strained when asked to deliver more.

This kind of subtle difference may not impact you but, if you're in any way interested in quickness and responsiveness, the Yaris might fail to impress.
For 2009, the Yaris continues as Toyota's subcompact value leader, which makes sense since it's also Toyota's only subcompact offering. Be sure to check the Fair Purchase Price before you buy to find out what smart buyers are really paying for this vehicle in your area. Set to do battle with the Honda Fit, Nissan Versa and lesser rivals like the Chevrolet Aveo and Kia Rio, the Yaris must cover a lot of ground. EngineFilter selectedEngineList, null ; engineFilter. Roomy Cabin The Yaris boasts the largest wheelbase in the subcompact arena.
Though the two body styles share a slight family resemblance, their individual personalities are miles apart. Overall, however, the interiors of both the Sedan and Liftback seem roomier than you'd expect for the sizes of the vehicles.

It, too, has the short sloping overhang in front but the traditional sedan look is evident by the high arch of the roofline and windows that helps provide decent head room for those in the back seat. As slight as the front end seems, the wide flat-back design of the hatch door appears solid and substantial, providing a low, easy opening to the cargo area.

Notable on the Yaris' list of options are keyless entry and a rear window defogger, both of which are standard on some competitors.

The most pronounced difference between the Yaris Liftback and the Yaris Sedan is that the Sedan is nearly 19 inches longer. The disconcerting aspect is that at night there are no gauges or little lights in front of you, causing you to have to turn your head slightly to the right to look at, for example, the speedometer. The Yaris is expected to retain a better-than-average resale value over time, higher than the Kia Rio and the Honda Fit. This is most noticeable in the interior leg and head room in both front and back seats.
More notably, the Yaris Sedan offers six-way adjustable front seats with driver's seat height adjustment, something not usually found in the subcompact segment.

This oddly-sized space might allow for balancing a small map, but anything more sizable would be precariously perched. This is a shortcoming for Toyota since one of the main competitors — the Honda Fit — has a few more horses 109 horsepower to Yaris' 106 and is much more fun to drive.
