2008 Toyota Yaris LX 1.3


A great performance for a small car



General Comments:

Intelligence and quality in every piece.

This car performs very good and very efficient. I feel the (quality and intellegance) everywhere, engine, transitions, wheels, space.

They really go the maximum from every thing in this car.

It do about 11KM/Litre in the city, and about 14KM/litre on highways.

Before I had a 1300 manual lancer. I was surprised when I bought my yaris that the 1300 Automatic yaris performs very much better than 1300 manual lancer.

- Air condition is better

- Very stable on the ground even with 200km/hour (lancer was unstable on 150KM/hour).

...one word to explain the quality and amazing-ness of the Yaris...TOYOTA!!! Although the lancer is OK, Toyota, in my opinion, makes the best small cars around. Although my girlfriends Mazda 3 is pretty close too!

Brilliant vehicle


Nothing yet. As it is of course brand new.

General Comments:

This car is the Toyota's youngest baby.

It is really amazing from inside, spacious and has very comfortable riding.

Isolation from the outside world is very good, specially when you turn your cassette player on and relax while driving..

Handling is very good as well thanks to the Electrical Power Steering system.

Petrol consumption is one of its secrets, and the best feature in this car... according to my last calculation, each liter drives it for at least 14Km.. (mixed urban and extra urban).

Air conditioning is very good, and does not affect the car's performance, although it is just 1300 CC and 85HP...

Acceleration is very good also; the car reaches 100 Km/Hr in 13 or 14 sec.. (but you need to push it hard...)

All in all, the car is really amazing and very good value for money... I recommend it to any who search for a small family car. Excellent in city, and it's very good on high roads.

I live in North America; test drove a 1.5 liter '08 Yaris today. It is simply awesome. I'm buying a compact shortly here, and was set on the Hyundai Accent until today, when I drove the Yaris. The Toyota quality outshines the Accent fairly obviously, and it is a very nice car. Plenty of room inside, the controls are precise, the ride is great, the build quality is exactly the high quality that Toyota always provides, and of course, it's a Toyota 4 cylinder engine, which means you're being moved by the best engine in the world, other than maybe a Honda engine.

The car is surely brilliant; I agree. I'll be buying one soon. The one I test drove was an automatic, can't wait till the dealership gets a standard shift on the lot for me to test also. I'll be ordering one.

Best in the class


No Problems.

General Comments:

The car is great at this price, but here in Egypt we have only the 1300 Engine.

It has few minors:

- Trunk door has to be held by hand to remain up.

- Trunk door is not smoothly closing.

- very small gloves box.

That's all.

Hi guys, I am comparing a Yaris to a New Elantra, which do you think is better for a girl?

Please advise.

I just want to be sure about the reliability of this car. Is the Yaris a stable car while driving on the highway with my girlfriend, and how fast can I go while keeping the steering wheel stable?
