AA
Review Summary
It can now compete with the class leaders in most regards except outright driving enjoyment, and it should be a relatively trouble-free ownership prospect.

Review Summary
Value for money, spaciousness and build quality will earn the Yaris the same willing audience as before, but given its huge resources, Toyota could have been expected to do better than that.

Parkers
Review Summary
The fact that the little three-cylinder 1.0-litre engine thrums away with such enthusiasm makes it so engaging to rev that you almost forget just how long it's taking to propel you from a standstill to 62mph.

Review Summary
The Toyota Yaris supermini is a reliable and efficient car, which is more stylish than ever and even comes as a hybrid.

Review Summary
To the possible disappointment of fans of the original model, today's Yaris is a very conventional supermini and by no means the best car in its class.

Review Summary
The Toyota Yaris is practical, easy to drive and very reliable, but driving dynamics and interior quality can't match the class best.

Review Summary
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.

Review Summary
There are better small hatchbacks, including the Ford Fiesta and VW Polo. They feel more capable on faster roads, and are quieter and classier. However, the Yaris’s efficiency, warranty and around-town nimbleness have some appeal, as does the Touch 2 sat-nav system.

Review Summary
Although it’s well equipped and has a hybrid option, the Toyota Yaris doesn’t excel enough to stand out in the small car class.
