2015 Toyota Yaris: Compact Car with a Big Performance
2015 finds the Toyota Yaris more visually appealing due to advanced curvature and sculpting in both the interior and exterior. Designed in France, this compact car has done a good job at progressing right along with its contemporaries.
This year, the Yaris—made in hatchback only—comes with a brand new look, highly derived from European style. It has a redefined front end, containing a distinctive mesh grill and precise line-work around the Toyota emblem, giving it a sleeker and more polished look. The Yaris’s hatchback shape is the perfect combination for ease and comfort: its modest stature allows for effortless parking, yet the tall frame makes it feel more substantial and creates plenty of head and legroom inside. The cabin of the Yaris is furnished with soft-touch surfaces and sporty gauges. The controls are all well placed and easy to use—you don’t have to worry about looking at a dash with a superfluous amount of confusing buttons. And, despite the smaller size of the car, there are more than enough built-in trays, bins, and cup-holders for passengers.
Looking beyond its comfort and style, the best features of the Yaris are its fuel economy and performance. With 30mpg city and 37mpg highway, you are guaranteed to save money at the pump. Due to the light frame and updated suspension system (the 2015 version has softer springs up front, and tight torsion-beam in the rear) it drives significantly well in town and on the highway, steadily keeping its control around curves and maintaining stability on those long stretches. Also, the superior electric power steering system—one of the best systems you will find today—helps you feel completely in control while driving.
For a compact vehicle, the Yaris does a wonderful job at not feeling like a toy car. It has all the essentials for success and more. If you are in the market for a car to save you money and get you places in style, this is the one for you.
