Expert Quotes:

30 mpg city, 36 highway (4-speed automatic); 30/37 (5-speed manual)
U.S. EPA





The 2013 Toyota Yaris is a very fuel-efficient small car--especially if you commute mainly in a city or suburban area. For mostly highway driving, you might be better off with a compact sedan.

The Yaris has excellent 30-mpg city ratings whether you get the four-speed automatic or the five-speed manual; 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. 

To illustrate, in a test of the Yaris, we averaged 30 mpg over nearly all city stop-and-go and short trips; but at a steady 70 mph we could only average 35 mpg.

For 2013, the Yaris has mysteriously--perhaps the result of retesting--gained 1 mpg on the highway with the automatic transmission but lost 1 mpg on the highway with the manual gearbox.

Conclusion

The 2013 Yaris delivers on its promises of fuel efficiency in the city, but on the highway you can do better with a number of larger and 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.
