Benefits of Driving a 2012 Toyota Yaris Hatchback

The Yaris has a lot of appeal to those who value practicality, fuel efficiency and reliability. The Toyota Yaris is one of the most fuel-efficient non-hybrid models available in the U.S., as well as one of the lowest-priced new cars. With the Yaris' enviable reputation for resale value, reliability and longevity, it's a great pick for those who want to buy new and keep their vehicle for a long time.

What's new for 2012?

The Yaris gets a redesign for 2012. Gone is the Yaris sedan. The hatchback gets a Camry-like front end and more steeply-raked rear lines. It's available in both 3 and 5 door variations. The same 1.5L 4-cylinder engine returns and customers will have a choice of L, LE and SE trims.

Model Review

The Yaris is offered in two body styles: 3-door and 5-door liftback. All 2012 Toyota Yaris models come with a 106-horsepower, 1.5L 4-cylinder engine, making 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque. With variable valve timing, the engine is quite flexible and responsive and works quite well with the available 5-speed manual transmission or 4-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings are 30 mpg city, 35 mpg highway with the automatic, or 30 mpg city /38 mpg highway with the manual.
