Base-priced at $14,895 (plus destination charge) for a three-door L edition, the Yaris also comes in LE and SE trim. Each Yaris holds a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 106 horsepower, mating with either a five-speed manual gearbox or a four-speed automatic. (You read that correctly: at a time when other economy cars have six-speed automatics, the Yaris sticks with four.)
Our test drives have included manual and automatic-transmission models.
Standard three-door Yaris L equipment includes:
- Manual transmission
- Height-adjustable driver's seat
- Nine airbags
- Air conditioning
- Electric power steering
- Power windows and locks
- Tilt steering wheel
- Six-speaker Entune audio with 6.1-inch touchscreen
- HD radio
- Bluetooth audio streaming
- Split-folding rear seat
- Fifteen-inch steel wheels
The four-speed automatic transmission adds $725 to the price of a three-door, and is standard on five-door models. A rearview camera is available, but no modern active-safety features can be specified.
