Ten Second Review
Perhaps unfairly, the perfectly practical and painlessly efficient Toyota Yaris has gained a reputation for being a rather unexceptional thing. That may once have been true but it certainly isn't the case now. The current car offers sportier styling and an extra helping of technology allied to even better build quality and the usual fine powertrains, generous kit and keen pricing. Here we check out volume Icon spec.
It's easy to forget quite how long Toyota's Yaris has been with us. The first generation car appeared in 1999, replacing the wholly underwhelming Starlet model. The Yaris was a vast improvement but still a modest achiever, offering reliability and low running costs while singularly failing to tweak the heart strings. The second generation Yaris arrived in 2005. it was bigger and better built. That model received a good refresh in 2009 with a more efficient 1.3-litre petrol engine, a revised diesel unit, improved transmissions and the addition of Stop & Start to further boost efficiency. Further running tweaks ensued leading up to the mid-2011 launch of the MK3 model we're looking at here which ushered in sharper design, a slick new Touch & Go multi-media system and enhanced value for money with more equipment offered as standard. The mid-level Icon variant is expected to mop up the majority of UK sales.
As before, two mainstream petrol engines are offered to Yaris buyers and both have something to be said for them. Featuring smart VVT-i variable valve timing, the 69bhp 1.0-litre three-cylinder unit marks the entry level while those looking for more power will prefer the 100bhp 1.33-litre option you have to have with Icon spec which uses the more advanced Dual VVT-i configuration and gets Stop & Start technology. The diesel option is a 90bhp 1.4-litre D-4D engine. The 1.0-litre unit takes a rather tardy 15.7s to get to 60mph which, although adequate for shopping duties, struggles out of town. The 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i engine feels much stronger during everyday driving and its Stop & Start system saves fuel too. 0-60mph takes 11.7s, but that's still slower than the 1.4-litre D-4D diesel's 10.7s. As standard the 1.33-litre engine and the diesel are mated to a clever 6-speed manual gearbox with a higher than usual 6th gear to boost fuel economy on higher speed runs. Toyota has also paid attention to smoothing out the shift action, reducing noise and bringing improved feel to the clutch pedal. The 1.0-litre engine gets a five speed manual but the other option is Toyota's MDS continuously variable transmission (CVT), which features a sequential seven-step mode that the driver can operate using either the gearshift lever or paddle shifts on the steering wheel.
Design and Build
Now into its third incarnation, this is certainly the most aggressive looking Yaris to date and the one most likely to stand out from the crowd. The angular headlights, pronounced 'V' sculpting of front grille, re-modelled bumpers and eased-out wheelarches give the car a sturdier, more purposeful stance. Move round to the back and the chrome strip running along the boot combines with the small tailgate spoiler to further massage the up-tempo message, an effect nicely rounded off by the dark-hued 8-spoke alloy wheels.External dimensions have stayed more or less the same which means the Yaris a good slice shorter than a Fiesta. While this means it's easier to park, it also means that Toyota has needed to box clever when it comes to fitting four passengers and their luggage inside. The boot is 272-litres compared to 295 in the Ford but Toyota's impressive EasyFlat rear seats split 60:40, fold and slide bringing a useful degree of versatility and up to 477-litres of space. Toyota's exemplary build quality is evident in the Yaris cabin and you'll search in vain for shoddily assembled trim components. That said, apart from the multi-function steering wheel and Touch & Go multi-media system, the interior remains much as before - which is to say unadventurous, verging on the bland. The controls are sensibly positioned and extremely easy to get to grips with but with rival superminis offering some highly intelligent and charismatic interior designs, the Yaris continues to fall a little short. It's a shame because the car does the hard work so effectively and may lose sales due to that last one per cent of interior tinsel that's often all that's needed to generate a little showroom wow factor.
Market and Model
The basic model range structure for the Yaris comprises Active, Icon, Icon Plus and Trend trim levels. The mid-spec Icon is expected to account for a significant number of UK sales and is available only with the 1.33-litre petrol engine and the five-door bodystyle. You do though get a choice of manual or MDS auto transmission. Or you can stretch to Icon Plus trim which widens the engine choice to include the 1.0-litre petrol and 1.4-litre D-4D diesel powerplants. Here, you can expect15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) and touchscreen audio controls, Bluetooth and rear parking camera. The Touch & Go media system first debuted on the Verso-S and combines a 6.1-inch touch screen, Bluetooth connectivity and an optional sat-nav system, and can be updated with new 'apps' during the life of the car. Top Trend spec is teamed exclusively with the 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine and gets 16-inch alloy wheels, a leather handbrake and steeering wheel, rear privacy glass and chromed side sills.
Cost of Ownership
Cost of ownership is one area where many of the Yaris' key rivals begin to look a little underpowered. This generation car continues to shape up extremely well as an ownership proposition. Its residual values are better than a Fiesta's, a lot better than a Corsa's and leagues better than a Punto's. The latest version of Toyota's three-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine returns 58.9mpg, while CO2 emissions are 111g/km. The 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i engine you have to have with Icon spec isn't far behind, especially when matched to the MDS auto transmission, giving 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions of 118g/km. Also more efficient than before is the 1.4-litre D-4D diesel - though you have to stretch to Icon Plus trim to get it. Its combined cycle fuel economy is 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions are just 99g/km, so there'll be no road tax to pay.
