2016 Toyota Yaris Exterior
As we have already said, the 2016 Toyota Yaris will come to showrooms with a significant improvement in terms of its appearance. New features that have been added make it more attractive than ever. The next generation of the Yaris will sport the carmaker’s big-mouth grille. Most of you will find the vast expanse of plastics on the front fascia of the car unattractive, but honestly, you will ignore all that when you see other things the Yaris has to offer. The rear end of the car hasn’t been changed dramatically, so the Yaris will still have the unmistakable appearance in the crowd. The 2016 Toyota Yaris will be offered in several different trim levels including the SE, LE, and the entry-level L model. The Yaris is definitely distinctive, especially the SE model which. We must admit that the SE model with its aluminum-alloy wheels, rear spoiler, and fog lights, caught our eyes as soon as we saw it.
Interior of 2016 Toyota Yaris
Toyota has just recently announced that the much-needed soft-touch surfaces and newly designed dash with Entune touch-sensitive infotainment screen have been added. Speaking of the materials, do not get too excited because the Yaris is a budget-priced economy car after all. You cannot expect it to have as premium interior as the Lexus, for example. The cabin of the Yaris is not really generous in terms of space, but it is good for comfy drives though. That’s about it. Other things haven’t been changed. The list of standard features comprises USB port, a 60/40-split folding rear seats, Bluetooth connectivity, Entune infotainment screen, air conditioning, power windows, etc.
Toyota Yaris 2016 Engine

As far as fuel economy is concerned, it delivers 30 mpg in the city and 37 mpg on the highway with manual shifter. Fuel economy with the automatic shifter is 30 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway.
