The Yaris sports a more restrained look than many in its class, eschewing swooping lines for a flatter approach that’s clean. The front of the Yaris hatch is the most noticeable part of the exterior styling, with a swooping line of brightwork around a large Toyota emblem, and a larger trapezoidal grille with new black mesh design texturing. Inside the 2017 Yaris, the cabin is straightforward and intuitive. The dash has horizontal, shelf-like lines and the controls are simple, cheerful, and easy to understand. It comes with lots of built-in storage spaces, in the form of trays, cupholders, bins, and the like—including a long tray at the bottom of the dash for the passenger.
When we received the Yaris, it was put through our shop’s safety inspection, and passed no problem. The front brakes are 80% and the rear brakes are 60%. The front summer tires are at 6/32nds and the rear tires are at 4/32nds.
