2011 Toyota Yaris Reviews

Vehicle Overview

The Yaris is Toyota's least expensive model, and it's available in sedan as well as two- and four-door hatchback styles. Similarly sized compacts include the Chevrolet Aveo, Honda Fit and Hyundai Accent.

New for 2011
There are no significant changes.

The sedan is more conservative-looking than the hatchback; it features a Camry-style snub-nosed front end. Both body styles feature a forward-cab design with short overhangs. Exterior features include:

  • Available 14- or 15-inch wheels
  • Standard body-colored mirrors and door handles
  • Standard rear defroster
  • Optional rear window wiper on hatchback
  • Optional fog lamps
  • Optional power locks, windows and mirrors

The interior has an unusual design, though it mostly remains functional. The sedan and hatch have slightly different layouts, with the sedan being the more conservative of the two. All models get a center-mounted instrument cluster, and the sedan's center control panel is reminiscent of the Camry's. The hatch's climate-control knobs are placed vertically below the stereo, as opposed to side-by-side as in most cars. There's an available 60/40-split rear seat for the hatchback that can recline and slide forward and backward. Interior features include:

  • Standard air conditioning
  • Optional CD player with auxiliary jack
  • Optional cruise control
  • Optional remote keyless entry
  • Optional 60/40-split folding backseat for the sedan

Under the Hood
The Yaris has a remarkably tight 32.6-foot turning circle for the sedan and 30.8-foot for the hatchback. Mechanical features include:

  • 106-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder with 103 pounds-feet of torque
  • Five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmission

Safety features include:

  • Standard front-seat side-impact airbags
  • Standard side curtain airbags
  • Standard stability system
  • Standard antilock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution

Learn More About Warranties

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
