Expert Quotes:

It kind of looks like a sedan was squeezed lengthwise in a vise and the pressure popped the hood up and left two bulbous saddlebags in place of the rear quarters.
Car and Driver

With its heroic square jaw and lower stance (0.6 inch shorter than its predecessor), the 2012 Toyota Yaris speaks a design language that's more forceful than that of the previous generation
Edmunds

The styling is evolutionary; it still looks like the last-generation Yaris but with a more butch attitude.
Automobile Magazine

interior is fresh and modern, though its plastics don’t feel quite as nice as the ones in Hyundai’s new Accent
Popular Mechanics

you could do a lot worse than this stylish-looking Yaris
AutoWeek

The 2014 Toyota Yaris is hardly a striking design from the outside. It can be viewed as a close-to-generic small hatchback, with a family resemblance to other Toyotas and tidy, serviceable lines. The front air dam has a slightly aggressive appearance, and this generation looks brawnier and more chiseled, with a pronounced side crease, large door handles, and taillamps that flare out from the body. The sporty SE model has a chunky rear bumper shield that gives it a rally-car look.

Inside, however, the cabin is far more stylish and practical than previous Yaris generations. The model has finally acquired an instrument cluster behind the steering wheel, where it should be. (Yaris models through 2011 had their instruments in a pod mounted centrally on the dashboard, which proved both distracting and confusing.)

The dash has horizontal, shelf-like lines and the controls are simple, cheerful, and easy to understand. There’s also a large cohort of built-in storage spaces, in the form of trays, cupholders, bins, and the like—including a long tray at the bottom of the dash on the passenger side.

Conclusion

The 2013 Toyota Yaris fades into small-car anonymity on the outside, but the interior is straightforward, even stylish.

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.
