2008 Toyota Yaris F/O Manual 1.3 Sedan from Egypt
Nothing yet. As it is of course brand new.
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.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

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.
