I called my own bluff, and ordered a GR Yaris

After the announcement of garden-variety Yaris pricing, I was disheartened to say the least. What this said to me was that the upcoming saviour of Japanese sports cars, the GR Yaris, would likely be too rich for my blood. I kept my hopes up, however...

2011 Toyota Yaris YR review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied. I was really worried about the size of the Yaris, as I had never owned one beforehand. After driving one, it was hard to believe it was a small car. It has lots of leg room in both the front and back seats – and I'm just on 180cm tall – with lots of head room...

2007 Toyota Yaris YRS Review

When I came back from Canada in 2006, I was looking for value and economy. I'd had a Mazda MX5 there, but couldn't afford the Australian equivalent. I compared small cars and the Yaris came out on top. It's a great car and I've had a lot of fun in it. It just hit the 113600 mark (5 trips to QLD from VIC and back) and I've never crawled out of this car in agony...

2012 Toyota Yaris Yrs Review

Fuel usage is good. Ride ok. Space good. Gearbox is good and so is the 1.5ltr engine. The boot can hold a good side suit case and the seats being able to be put down or split is a good thing. Engine runs well around city and also at 100kmph. cruise control is a great feature. Safety is good in this car. Colouring is a bit out there...
