30 mpg city, 35 highway (4-speed automatic); 30/38 (5-speed manual)
U.S. EPA





Fuel-efficiency and sticker price are still among the major reasons why shoppers will look at the 2012 Toyota Yaris, and it's still very appealing on both counts.

Whether you get the four-speed automatic or the five-speed manual, the 2012 Yaris is rated at 30 mpg in city driving; but its aerodynamics (and likely the lack of more gears for the automatic) keep it from returning the 40 mpg or higher ratings that other subcompacts like the Hyundai Accent now get. 

We've had no problem matching the Yaris' mileage in the city. In our latest test of the 2012 Yaris, we averaged 30 mpg over nearly all city stop-and-go and short trips. But over an additional, pretty level 10-mile stretch at 70 mph, we could only average 35, though—a number we match in many larger compact sedans. To sum, the Yaris is a great city car, not a highway hauler.

Conclusion

The 2012 Toyota Yaris is an fuel-efficient, low-cost pick for city commuting, but its mileage on the highway is surpassed by a number of larger, more comfortable models.

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.
