Summary:

Excellent city car

Faults:

Rubber around doors is defected.

High noise at speed above 120km/h.

Paint work is very easy to damage.

General Comments:

Excellent city car with extremely small fuel consumption (5.5l/100km).

Very spacious for this type of car.

Very good handling, which improves even more with tyres wider than original.

Running costs are very low. Already 55000km, and nothing more than oil and filter changes...

1.0 engine is definitely not ideal for open roads and highways, since it produces lot of noise above 4000rpm and 120km/h.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The new Toyota Yaris has always caught my attention, and yes the dashboard is just so amazing. I would just like to make one comment, that 120km/h for a small 900c engine is quite a speed, therefore the noise it makes at that speed I would say is rather acceptable. Apart from that it's a brilliant car.
