The 2017 Toyota Yaris could be a good indicator of the future of car building. It is an entry level vehicle, but it is loaded with advanced safety features, and all the high-tech features buyers get in more expensive vehicles.
The diminutive hatchback offers all a driver really needs, and is more than just basic transportation. It provides good interior room, has a punchy 4-Cylinder, and gets in and out of tight spaces with ease.
The Yaris comes in four models, with two 3-door models and two 5-door. A 1.4L-Cylinder engine producing 106hp and 103lb-ft is the sole powertrain and drivers have a choice of a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed Electronically controlled automatic Transmission with Intelligence. Driving and handling are spirited in the Yaris. The standard Sport Tuned MacPherson strut front suspension and rear torsion bar make it so.
Aiding drivability is Sport Tuned Electric Power Steering that is standard in the 2017 Yaris.
The European inspired exterior of the Yaris is sleek with aerodynamic curves. The Yaris also possesses Toyota’s wide open grille with black air fins, which adds a unique contrast to the bumper area.
The interior is sports styled with available white stitched seats and leather trimmed steering wheel and shift lever. The instrument panel is organized in a simple but stylish manner. It also makes good use of available space by stacking various compartments and function knobs vertically.
It is in safety where the 2017 Toyota Yaris really stands out. In smaller vehicles, safety features are even more important, and Toyota delivers beyond measure when it comes to safety features in the 2017 Yaris.
Nine advanced air bags protect the front and sides of the front passengers and even the knees of the driver. Front and side curtain airbags complete the package. Highlighting the Yaris’s standard safety features is Toyota’s Safety Sense™, an extra protection system previously offered only is Toyota’s higher end models.
Also, standard in the Yaris is the Star Safety System. It enhances the overall safety of the Yaris with Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Electronic Brake Force Distribution, and Smart Stop Technology.
Toyota doesn’t hold anything back in technology either. Everything today’s hi-tech driver requires is standard in the Yaris. Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity, HD Radio™ technology, and Toyota’s Entune™ Audio are all standard. Entune™ comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, and has voice recognition. A USB port and auxiliary input jack are also standard.
Loaded with safety and technology features, the 2017 Toyota Yaris is an entry level, sub compact that is small, but as complete as any vehicle in Toyota’s lineup.
