2020 Toyota Yaris

2020 Yaris Photos
The 2020 Toyota Yaris might not be the sexiest car around, but this thrifty little subcompact is an affordable, practical, and surprisingly zippy piece of work. A low base price and a decent list of standard creature comforts mitigate the lack of comprehensive active-safety features.

For 2020, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility has been made standard. Also, the hatchback option returns after a brief hiatus from our shores. As with the prior generation, the five-door Yaris is based on the Mazda 2 hatch, which is not sold here.

The hatchback shares the same 1.5-liter inline-4 as the sedan. This engine makes 106 horsepower and sends it all to the front wheels. Base L models get a 6-speed manual transmission, but the upper two trims use a 6-speed automatic.

Both the sedan and hatchback get 32 mpg city, 40 highway, 35 combined when equipped with the 6-speed automatic. The 6-speed manual on the base L sedan drops those figures to 30/39/34 mpg.

Active-safety features are mostly absent on the Yaris. Automatic emergency braking is standard, but it only works at less than 12 mph. No other such safety features are available.

In crash-testing, the 2020 Toyota Yaris earned a five-star rating from the NHTSA. The sedan earned 'Good'? ratings from the IIHS, but the organization has yet to test the hatchback.
