2018 Toyota Yaris review: Our expert's take


Toyota's Yaris subcompact will roll into 2018 with a light styling refresh and upgraded entertainment technology. It will continue to be available in two- and four-door hatchback models and in three trims: L, LE and SE.

Exterior
The Yaris gets a bigger grille with chrome accents and new front bumper design that overall is a little more aggressive and less cute than the outgoing version. On the top-of-line SE, the bigger grille gets piano-black mesh and standard 16-inch alloy wheels with dark accents. New taillights now stretch horizontally into the liftgate, and a new rear bumper with new lower trim gives it a wider look. The paint colors include two new options and a pair of two-tone combinations.
 
Interior
The 2018 L and LE trims now will get the Entune multimedia system with 6.1-inch touchscreen, common on other Toyotas. It includes voice control, a USB port, satellite radio capability and six speakers. The SE gets an upgraded version of the Entune system with a 7-inch display. As with other Toyotas, neither includes Apple CarPlay or Android Auto phone integration.
 
The L trim also gets an upgraded three-spoke steering wheel with tilt adjustment and audio controls. And both the L and LE now will get the same sport dashboard as the SE, with its analog instruments including a tachometer and an LCD display with information such as trip meters, clock, outside temperature and more. Cloth upholstery is standard: black and gray in the L and LE, all black in the SE.
 
Under the Hood
Toyota did not specify any powertrain changes for the 2018 version of the front-wheel-drive subcompact. The 2017 offers a 106-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder with four-speed automatic or five-speed manual. 
 
Safety
Carrying over for 2018 is a standard safety technology package that includes Toyota’s Safety Sense-C front collision warning with automatic braking, a lane departure warning and automatic high beams.

Handles well!

Although it’s a small car, this 2018, Toyota Yaris provides ample room in the driver seat- the most important seat in the car! Love it!!!!!

Most suitable size for Indian Road

I made a lot of research on the size, fuel economy and luxury of a car which would like to own. It met most of my expectation except gives an average 10 in city and 14 KM/L on highway with A/C running. Bumper supports are bit delicate and get damaged easily. Looks perfect size for Indian Road.

Good little car

This is my second yaris, upgraded from my old '07 to a 3 year lease of the 2018 model. Ending my lease now with 60K km on it. Generally very reliable, the only repair I've had other than scheduled maintenance was brake pad replacements at around 50K and a wheel alignment after going over a pothole. The nice thing about having a small entry level car is that even the big repairs are pretty cheap. Safety and convenience features are nice (I have the LE trim), performance is totally adequate for A-B driving but don't expect to be blown away - acceleration is noticeably sluggish when you're carrying 3 passengers. Tank is pretty small so I had to fill up more often than I would like when I was commuting but the actual fuel economy is pretty great, as long as you drive sensibly. I live in Ontario so we get pretty bad winters, I put snow tires on every year and never had any issues with winter performance. Even though it is a small car there is a surprising amount of space, you'll get just as much stuff in there with the back seats down as you would in a sedan, if not more. If you're on a budget and not looking for anything flashy, the Yaris is an awesome little car for reliability and affordability.
