The new car represents the competitor in the class, with the new features and details which should improve the look and design for the younger buyers. However, there are complaints in term of cabin noise, equipment and some materials used in making it, but looking at the price and the competitors in the class Yaris has many things to be competitive as the last models.
There are no many surprises in the exterior of 2017 Toyota Yaris, especially for those who loved that car before. Being a four-door hatchback, Yaris has a cute design, which collects all important details in one vehicle. The front grille has wide and large trapezoidal gridded air intake in the middle of it, with the recognizable thin line above it (does it look like the letter “Y”?). The well incorporated curved LED front lights are at the ends of that line with maybe too short flat hood. The side of the car has dent doors, while convex roof covers it with optional black colored plastic. Even though that part some drivers defined as cheap and poor, it looks impressive and modern on the simply designed car as Yaris is. The rear end is expectedly rounded and has a wider bottom with simple taillights.
The cabin is a wide comfort for five passengers in 2017 Toyota Yaris, with very wide and opened windshield providing the great look at the road during the driving. That is a cute detail, especially if we know that small cars like Yaris usually have a problem with that part. The simple and old-fashioned dashboard has only important commands, with a 6.1-inch touchscreen and good button layout. However, Toyota has no proper smartphone connectivity in small cars, which could be a problem, while it has a Bluetooth connection, USB port, an auxiliary input and a simple fabric on small seats. However, the cabin is cute and perfect for cars in this class.
The engine in 2017 Toyota Yaris is also small but fit for the small hatchback. It is 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque. The speed of 60 mph increases for 10.2 seconds, but fuel economy is great for the class with 30-36 mpg.
