City Smart: Yaris is The Car for New York

Yaris is Toyota’s most affordable car. Yaris is offered as a 3-door or 5-door hatchback as well as a 4-door sedan with room for all of your friends.

Just a few years ago, you couldn’t buy a small economy car without facing big shortcomings in areas like feature content and refinement. These days, many models offer stylish cabins, agreeable driving dynamics and upscale amenities like Bluetooth and satellite radio. The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a car that’s in step with this trend.

Budget-conscious car shoppers are looking for a choice that’s frugal to operate and easy to live with, and the Yaris delivers on both these fronts. While its 106-horsepower, 1.5-liter engine is no overachiever when it comes to performance, the four-cylinder boasts as much as 32 mpg EPA combined, and this makes the Yaris a strong candidate for those who prefer inexpensive trips to the gas station. This small car also has a comfortable ride, and once you factor in its attractive interior, wide variety of body styles (the lineup consists of a sedan and two hatchbacks) and Toyota’s reputation for reliability, it’s easy to see why the Yaris is a worthy pick among economy-car alternatives in 2011.

The 2011 Toyota Yaris is a subcompact economy car that is available as a three-door hatchback, five-door hatchback and four-door sedan. Each body style comes in just one trim: base. Standard features include 14-inch steel wheels, intermittent windshield wipers, air-conditioning, four-way-adjustable front seats and a tilt steering wheel. one of its strongest selling points. At an EPA-estimated 29 mpg city/36 mpg highway and 32 mpg combined, the manual-equipped Yaris sips less gas than most of the competition.

Standard safety features include antilock brakes and side curtain airbags, as well as traction and stability control. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Yaris sedan its highest score of “Good” for frontal- and side-impact protection for all occupants.

Every Yaris model features a center-mounted instrument panel. Relative to sedan models, Yaris hatchbacks offer certain advantages when it comes to design and storage capacity. They feature three gloveboxes to the sedan’s single bin, and they also receive a chic, narrow center stack.

On the open road, the 2011 Toyota Yaris feels solid, while in the city, the quick, light-effort steering makes parking-lot maneuvers a breeze.
