The car, known as the Scion iA and later the Toyota Yaris iA, now called the 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan, continues the confusing life of this lower compact sedan. Very good – definitely more popular than last year’s Yaris: a hatchback has renamed Yaris Liftback 2019. However, the story of the Yaris Sedan gets even more bizarre.
It can be sold at Toyota dealers and can share the same warranty with other Toyotas, a year of complementary maintenance and the standard accident prevention technique. Obviously he’s wearing the same familiar badge. And yet, the Yaris Sedan is not really a Toyota. It was originally designed, manufactured and manufactured by Mazda, which sells as Mazda2 in other markets. Obviously, this is a very good thing because it looks and uses the miniature version of the perfect Mazda3. In this way, it has sharp driving dynamics, superior fuel economy and a stylish, well-built cabin. It’s actually a much better car than the Yaris Liftback built by Toyota.
So even if the story of the Yaris Sedan is a bit confusing, you really only need to know one thing: if you are interested in a subcompact sedan, it should be on your radar. Whatever it is and whoever it is, it’s a very small car.
Toyota Yaris Sedan was the vehicle sold as Yaris iA in the last few years. With this semi-name change, it is a less equipped but cheaper base model and revises new styles resulting in extra features in XLE. Formerly known as Yaris hatchback, now Yaris Liftback
What do we like?
Long-standard equipment list including accident-avoidance technology; excellent crash test scores; excellent handling and driving experience; high quality cabin
The Toyota Yaris Sedan has only one engine option: a 106-speed, 1.5-liter 4-cylinder, 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy is rated at 32 mpg per gallon in the city, 40 mpg on the motorway and 35 mpg on manual combined driving with 30 mpg city / 39 mpg hwy / 34 mpg. It is among the best in this segment.
Standard Features and Options
Standard equipment (15,450 Dollars) 15-inch steel wheel, low-speed forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking system, backup camera, keyless entry, full power accessories (lock, windows, mirrors), air conditioning, cruise control, height adjustment driver seat, fabric upholstery, Mazda’s infotainment system (center console control, touch-sensitive 7-inch display when the vehicle stops), two USB ports, an auxiliary audio input, Bluetooth, HD and satellite radios and 6-speaker audio system.
LE ($ 16,450) adds 16-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, heated mirrors, proximity input and pushbutton start-up and a rear spoiler.
Both L and LE come standard with a manual transmission, but a 6-speed automatic is a $ 1,110 option.
XLE ($ 18,550) comes with an automatic transmission only and automatically adds LED headlights, LED headlights, automatic wipers, Normal and Sport driving modes, automatic climate control, leather simulated leather upholstery and leather-covered steering wheel.
At the wheel
The Yaris Sedan has only 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque, so its driving is surprisingly enjoyable. There is no doubt that the car’s light weight below 2,500 pounds is a factor here, but the engine is willing to topple, the steep hills are not important, and most are plentiful peppers for going and sightseeing.
The standard transmission is a 6-speed manual, but most receivers will be available for 6-speed automatic. It is a regular, planetary gear unit (as opposed to a continuously variable transmission) and smartly shifts as in other Mazda-produced cars. If any person goes for shifting, the clutch is quite fast and slippery, even though the clutch is quite high in the travel area.
The rest of the driving experience applies to Mazda engineering, instead of the Toyota badge … that’s a good thing. While it’s certainly not as sharp as the more expensive Mazda3 drive, Yaris is still blessed with responsive steering and sharp reactions, making it one of the best sub-compacts to drive. Although the journey is a bit solid, it is sturdy and quiet enough for a small, cheap car.
As for the interior, the fact that the car is narrow is not hidden – as a result the shoulder room is a bit narrow. Meanwhile, the leg cavity is in a good condition even for an adult in the middle. Your feet can slide under the seat in the front and can last more than a short ride. The Headroom is also well suited for a person not above average. What’s even more disturbing for the front passenger is that the center armrest is too short, does not slide forward and is quickly disturbed.
