The car has four-speed automatic transmission and a five-speed automatic transmission are available as a companion for the 106 hp Yaris and the 1.5-liter four-cylinder. For more sporty drivers an SE model is available. Good visibility and the Toyota Entune Infotainment System are among the best features of the Yaris. Apart from the complaints, we cannot argue with Toyota's famous marketing language for the Yaris: "It's a car!"
Inside, there are a few appealing details. A large windshield and low beltline offer excellent visibility, so attentive drivers should never be surprised by a vehicle hiding in the blind spots. A standard 6.1-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth connectivity also includes an auxiliary jack and a USB port; its operation is both intuitive and useful.
For starters, it's impossible to ignore the unsatisfactory Yaris LE engine, the 106-hp, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a very old four-speed automatic transmission. A 2015 update to facilitate change seems to have improved the quality of the changes, but other relationships would be needed to silence the strong Yaris protests that are driven by the speed of the highways. Range 60 miles per hour took 10.2 seconds
The Yaris' 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine has only 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque, and all the panels say it's a gasoline engine. The EPA qualified in 32 mpg combined delivered 30 mpg in our tests. That's about the same as 29-32mpg, we recorded for others in the class, but the iA gets a huge combined rating of 37 mpg EPA, and has 36 mpg in our real test of the automatic version of this car.
