The 2018 Toyota Yaris stands out in its segment with aggressive exterior design cues and an impressive range of standard safety technology. It’s one of the few cars from any segment available with a three-door body style. The Yaris is relatively fuel efficient, too, although it’s not quite as roomy as some rivals.
To be clear, the subcompact Yaris is available in three- and five-door hatchback configurations, with all models offered in L and LE trims. The five-door lineup further includes a range-topping SE trim. Front-wheel drive and a five-speed manual transmission are standard in the three-door L trim and the sporty SE model. The middle trims feature a standard four-speed automatic that’s optional elsewhere. (The 2018 Toyota Yaris iA subcompact sedan is reviewed separately.)
Toyota has refreshed the Yaris for the 2018 model year, introducing dramatic new style touches for the exterior, along with more standard equipment in the cabin. The list of new content extends to a pre-collision system with automatic emergency braking.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris is distinguished by its size, as it’s nearly 5 inches shorter than rivals such as the Honda Fit. That agile footprint creates an athletic, ready-to-run stance for the Yaris. Features include a futuristic front-end with a large, trapezoidal grille; a cyclopean fixture for the front Toyota badge; and distinctive fog-light pockets. Beyond the number of doors, the two Yaris body styles are set apart by the shape of their rear roof pillars. They share the exact same dimensions, though.
Drivers can expect multi-reflector halogen headlights, daytime running lights, 15-inch covered steel wheels, chrome accents and manually adjustable exterior mirrors among the Yaris’ standard features. A number of premium upgrades are available, including projector-beam headlights complemented by LED accent lights, LED daytime running lights and integrated fog lights. Additional upgrades include power-adjustable exterior mirrors, 15- and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and a mesh grille.
An exotic-looking dashboard is a highlight of the Yaris, complete with a driver-focused layout, multiple surfaces across its width and handy storage spaces on the passenger side. Also, to maximize interior versatility, the Yaris comes with a standard cargo-area cover and 60/40 split-folding rear seats with 15.6 cubic feet of storage space behind them. Cargo space can be increased significantly by folding the rear seats, but Toyota doesn’t specify by how much.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris covers all the basics in terms of standard content, offering air conditioning, power amenities, fabric-trimmed seating, a six-way manually adjustable driver’s chair and a tilt-adjustable steering wheel with built-in audio controls. In the upper trims, available content includes sport-fabric seating surfaces, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, metallic interior accents and satin-chrome door handles.
More focused on fuel economy than on performance, the Yaris provides a standard 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque. This compares to the previously mentioned Fit, which offers a standard 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque. The Yaris can pair that engine with a standard five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic, in all cases with front-wheel drive.
With a particularly strong grade in urban driving, the Yaris earns EPA ratings as high as 30/36 mpg city/highway with its standard transmission.
Safety technology is a major selling point with the Yaris, which comes standard with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, automatic high beams and a rearview camera. Toyota goes upscale with the car’s standard infotainment system, combining a 6.1-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, Bluetooth connectivity, an iPod-compatible USB 2.0 port, Siri Eyes Free functionality and six audio speakers.
For the SE trim, an enhanced infotainment system includes a seven-inch touchscreen, an app-based navigation system that works with most smartphones and satellite and HD Radio services.
