The 2010 Toyota 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.
Although air conditioning and keyless entry are included in all models, if you don't option up you'll have manual wind-up windows. A Sport Package brings body-color bumpers and side rocker panels; in addition, it picks up sport seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shifter knob, 15-inch wheels, a rear defroster, a rear wiper, and an audio system with MP3 capability and an auxiliary jack. Cruise control is on offer, as is a cold-weather package with rear-seat heater ducts.
ConsumerGuide cautions that prices "climb to the level of larger, more powerful cars that come with safety and convenience features that cost extra on the Yaris."
The Yaris can be upgraded with Toyota Racing Development accessories, including suspension modifications, sport exhaust, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The 2010 Toyota Yaris offers quite a few options, mostly grouped into large packages, but take advantage of them and you'll be in a more "premium" price range.
