The Toyota Yaris is an extremely popular car. A subcompact car has been made in Japan since 1999. In some countries, they are marketed under different names including the Toyota Echo, Toyota Platz, Toyota Belta and the Toyota Vitz.
Initially, the Yaris featured petrol engines. Today it is now possible to buy a hybrid version. Despite only being launched in June 2012, sales of this model are already strong, in Europe. In the UK, high fuel prices mean that consumers are more interested in buying hybrid motors than consumers in some other parts of the world are.
Why the Toyota Yaris is Such a Popular Car
There has already been three generations of this very popular car released. All of them are good-looking vehicles. Despite being subcompact in size, they are still practical and comfortable to use. For its class, boot space is very generous as is legroom.
The Yaris is competitively priced, which has definitely helped sales, especially in the current economic climate. In addition, they are extremely economical to run. Servicing is relatively inexpensive and parts are not costly. Therefore, they have a reputation for being cheap to run.
The new Yaris hybrid is currently the cheapest hybrid you can buy. Prices start at just under £15,000. It has the lowest CO2 rating for a non-electric car. Its CVT gearbox gives a more natural acceleration than many other hybrid cars can boast. Unlike many other hybrid vehicles, it can also run for short periods of time on electric only. The most economical models get 80.7 mpg. It is anticipated that this winning combination will make the Toyota Yaris even more popular than it already is.
