Expert Quotes:

Base trims don't come with a stereo, just four speakers wired up with no place to go.
MSN Autos

quirky gauge cluster integrated into the middle of the dash...a cost-cutting annoyance that allows easy assembly for multiple global markets, but such a setup doesn’t work well when actually driving.
Car and Driver

lots of standard features, at least judged by the yardstick for subcompacts
USA Today

The three large climate control knobs are simple and easy to use
Edmunds

no trip computer - not even a fuel economy readout
Boston Globe

Many automakers have been trying to get away from the old 'economy car' image, by equipping their smallest cars with some of the conveniences of larger vehicles. But the 2011 Toyota Yaris isn't one of them; it can't be equipped with leather seats, or even heated ones, and there's no factory Bluetooth connectivity (it's a port-installed add-on). The Yaris is a simple car with a simple lineup—and a single model offered for each body style and transmission. Thus, there isn't much to report with regard to high-tech options or extravagant features.

The Yaris has a relatively simple lineup, with a single model offered for each body style and transmission. Although air conditioning and keyless entry are included in all models, unless you option up you'll get manual wind-up windows.

Factory options are consolidated to just a couple of main option packages, along with a few standalone options. A Power Package brings power locks, windows, and mirrors, along with remote keyless entry (and upgraded trim in the sedan), while the Sport Package includes front and rear spoilers, side rocker panels, front fog lamps, an amber tachometer, front sport seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, and an upgraded sound system with XM satellite radio compatibility, an auxiliary input, and iPod connectivity. An all-weather package brings rear heater ducts and an upgraded windshield washer. Fog lamps and cruise control are among the few items offered a la carte.

Toyota also offers an array of accessories, available through dealerships, and while it's a very short list compared to what's offered in Scion vehicles (like the comparably sized xB), the Toyota Racing Development accessories are especially noteworthy. Suspension modifications, a sport exhaust, and 18-inch alloy wheels can all be supported as part of the factory warranty, when purchased at the same time as the vehicle.

Conclusion

Luxury is a word unheard in the 2011 Toyota Yaris feature list; that's okay, but proper Bluetooth connectivity is sorely missing.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
