The 2020 Toyota Yaris is available in hatchback and sedan form types and has excellent fuel economy.

Less favourably, this Toyota has fewer driver-assistance systems than some of its competitors.

Still, everything comes together to provide a value offer that is quite appealing to buyers who are looking for a little car at a reasonable price.

For 2020, the Yaris hatchback is completely new. It is now based on a Mazda 2 model that isn't offered in the US, similar to the sedan.

The L model is also available with a six-speed automatic transmission for $1100 more than the manual.

Daytime running lights and power-adjustable side mirrors are included as standard exterior elements on the L with manual transmission, which rolls on 15-inch steel wheels.

Front-wheel drive is standard on all 2020 Yaris cars, and motivation comes from a 1.5-liter four-cylinder. 

This engine produces 103 lb-ft of torque and 106 horsepower. In our tests, a Yaris XLE sedan reached 60 mph from 0 mph in 9.6 seconds.

However, the Toyota Yaris gives a truly pleasant driving experience and doesn't feel underpowered when used for daily travel.

The 2020 Toyota Yaris's EPA-estimated fuel economy with the automatic transmission is 32/40 mpg city/highway.

That is comparable to the Nissan Versa's mileage, while it falls just short of the Kia Rio's (33/41 mpg).

2020 Toyota Yaris Interior

The Yaris' cabin is stylish thanks to its trendy design and high-quality materials.

The front seats should be reasonably comfortable for most drivers, but bigger passengers may have trouble fitting in the back seats.

The Toyota Yaris hatchback has 16 cubic feet of load space. The Kia Rio hatchback costs less (17 cubic feet).

Infotainment and Connectivity

Base models have a 6-speaker audio system and 7.0-inch touchscreen. Bluetooth phone, streaming audio, and an auxiliary audio-input connection are standard.

The best part is that all trim levels come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for simple smartphone connectivity.
