2018 Toyota Yaris review, road test

    Will the ever-dependable Toyota badge and class-leading safety equipment be enough to lure buyers towards this mid-size sedan, despite its premium pricing?

    There are four variants on offer and the good news is that all of them get seven airbags (including a driver knee airbag) and ABS with EBD as standard across the range. Even the CVT is available as an option across the range. The top VX variant gets kit like ESP, traction control, all-wheel disc brakes and hill launch assist. In addition to these, the Yaris gets some segment-first features like gesture control for the touchscreen, roof-mounted rear blower with ambient lighting, front parking sensors, 60:40 rear-seat split, a noise and vibration-absorbing glass area and a tyre pressure warning system. Other prominent kit include projector headlamps, 15-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry/go, (part) leather upholstery, auto headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, reversing camera, cruise control and paddleshifters (in CVT). Still, its competitors offer some more desirable features like a sunroof, LED headlamps and cooled seats, all of which aren’t available on the Yaris.
