Are you looking for a cheap entry-level Toyota car? In the past years, you would have diverted the views of its strange proportional predecessor, the Echo, and chose to shop for one worthy competitor. Luckily, the 2018 Toyota Yaris is a better vehicle in everything from its predecessor.
Yaris’s small body and standard rearview camera make it very easy to maneuver in parking lots and parallel parking. It’s also one of the few cars in its class that offers the latest sophisticated safety aids. And since the Yaris is also a hatchback, so you can fit more stuff in the cargo space.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris is a compact hatchback available in two body styles. The Yaris L and LE come in two or four doors, while the SE is offered only as a four-door.
Under the hood, the 2018 Toyota Yaris is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine good for 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque. The two-door L and four-door SE come standard with a five-speed manual transmission, while a four-speed automatic is optional on those trims and standard on everything else. Fuel economy is still very frugal, at (33/30/36) for the manual and (32/30/35) for automatic.
