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?

    Three variants get a 7.0-inch touchscreen. While the top-spec VX gets a slightly different unit, what’s common among them is that the display is hard to read, especially in daylight. The colours on the screen aren’t rich and the graphics aren’t sharp.

    The talking point here is gesture control. It’s a cool party trick but isn’t very intuitive. Also, there’s no knob for the volume. To insert a CD/DVD, the system folds open (facing upwards), and because there’s no physical button to slot it back in, you end up tapping the screen randomly to get it to its original position.

    While navigation is present only in the VX, Miracast is part of even the lower G and V. Using this, you can mirror (and control) your phone on to the car’s screen via Bluetooth; it works flawlessly. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay don’t make it to the equipment list.
