Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Economy-car buyers don’t usually put performance near the top of their preferences. That’s wise, because with either engine, the Yaris trails many rivals in friskiness.

Eking out satisfactory acceleration is possible only by keeping the hatchback’s engine revving fast. But past 3,000 rpm, that engine feels loud and strained. Noise is aggravated by the outmoded 4-speed automatic transmission. Higher-speed downshifts are both blaring and dramatic.

Overall, Yaris drivers get an old-fashioned driving experience. Performance does improve with the manual gearbox.

Two pluses: Ride comfort is comparatively good for a subcompact, while handling is better than might be expected. Well-tuned, if rather soft, springs limit the effect of bumps and ripply pavement. Roadholding improves with the SE’s stiffer suspension, without losing much ride quality.

Driving qualities are more appealing with the iA sedan, which feels perkier than the hatchback. Though the iA’s Mazda-built engine is identical to the hatchback’s in size, it’s entirely different, employing direct injection. With manual shift, an iA can feel almost like a low-budget sport sedan. Unlike the hatchback’s transmissions, both of the iA’s 6-speed units are excellent. Precise steering is well-weighted, and the taut iA suspension absorbs many trouble spots.

Fuel-efficiency could be better. Hatchbacks with 4-speed automatic are EPA-rated at only 30/35 mpg City/Highway, or 32 mpg Combined. With 5-speed manual, it’s 30/36/33 mpg. Gas mileage rises with the iA, EPA-rated with automatic at 32/40 mpg City/Highway, or 35 mpg Combined (30/39/34 mpg with manual).

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Minimally adorned compared to many rivals, the Yaris hatchback has a well-proportioned appearance. More restrained than such subcompacts as the Chevrolet Spark and Honda Fit, the hatchback looks flat and clean, if ordinary. More brightwork is evident up front, and the trapezoidal-shape grille features black mesh.

Because the iA sedan evolves from a Mazda design, appearance differs. A huge grille, also trapezoidal, overpowers the front end. Reaching downward as well as outward, it creates one of the boldest noses in the subcompact category. Chrome body trim mimics the geometric design.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

In both hatchback and sedan body styles, front occupants can expect greater comfort than those consigned to the back seat, which is best occupied by youngsters. Adults are likely to feel cramped.

Rear legroom near 33 inches falls below that of some rivals. It’s 6 inches less than a Honda Fit provides. Back-seat access can be a challenge in three-door hatchbacks.

Because the hatchback’s steering column does not telescope, taller drivers might not feel entirely comfortable. Otherwise, front seats are reasonably satisfying, more comfortable than those in the bigger Nissan Versa, though adjustment range is somewhat restricted.

Front-seat bottom cushions aren’t annoyingly short, and are broad enough to suit American bodies. Seat contouring and side support are better in SE trim level.

Along the shelf-like dashboard, controls are easy to use, with soft-touch surfaces evident. Overall, the cabin is logically laid-out and intuitive. Storage areas abound.

Though not fully flat, the cargo floor is higher than in some subcompacts. Cargo volume in the five-door totals a respectable 15.6 cubic feet.

Within the iA sedan’s cabin, materials have an upscale look, belying the car’s moderate price. Ergonomics beat those of the hatchback, yet rear legroom isn’t much better.


New Car Test Drive

Yaris hatchbacks provide a traditional subcompact experience at a modest price, marred by sluggish performance and noise. Not only is the new iA sedan more satisfying to drive, it’s better-equipped and thriftier on gas – with a starting price comparable to that of the hatchback.
