2018 Toyota Yaris Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
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 ...

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.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

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.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

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.

What is included in 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).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

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.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
