2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan?

Previously known as the Scion iA, then the Toyota Yaris iA, Toyota’s subcompact car is now the Yaris Sedan. Based on the Mazda2 (which is no longer sold in the U.S.), the five-seat Yaris Sedan is powered by a 106-horsepower, 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Competitors include the Nissan Versa, Kia Rio and Chevrolet Sonic.

What’s New on the 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan?

A new top-of-the-line XLE trim includes simulated leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic air conditioning, automatic LED headlights and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The car’s gaping front grille now has a honeycomb-style insert, and there’s a new rear lip spoiler on LE and XLE trims.

What Features in the 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan Are Most Important?

The Yaris proves that efficiency, fun and value can all happily coexist. With EPA-estimated gas mileage of up to 35 mpg combined with the automatic transmission, and a suspension built by Mazda, the Yaris is an efficient, nimble performer. Don’t expect quick acceleration from the 1.5-liter four-cylinder, however.

Should I Buy the 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan?

There’s a lot to like about the 2019 Yaris Sedan, especially with its rare blend of efficiency, value and driving dynamics. The lack of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity – two relatively common features nowadays – is annoying, and it doesn’t have as many active safety features as other Toyotas, but it’s a good little car.

Cute Little Car

by Karye from Crown Point, IN on March 23, 2020

I probably would have never considered a Yaris until I test drove it. I had a Corolla and needed a cheaper car. The Yaris is wonderful and drives just as smooth as the Corolla. It’s smaller but it’s ... Read full review

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.
