2018 Toyota Yaris vs. Its Competition

2018 Toyota Yaris
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Honda Fit offers more options and a flexible seating arrangement that makes it our pick in the segment.

The Chevy Sonic isn’t far behind, thanks to its drivability in RS models.

The Ford Fiesta offers a fuel-efficient 3-cylinder engine that’s relatively fun to drive, but its cramped interior has only sped up its demise.

The Versa Note isn’t particularly engaging either, but a light refresh has made it more relevant now.

The Hyundai Accent is new for 2018, although the automaker dropped the slow-selling hatchback.

Stay tuned for our driving impressions.

Quick Specs
6.0
The 2018 Toyota Yaris is two cars: a fun-to-drive sedan called the "iA," and a hatchback relic that's hard to recommend. Four doors=four thumbs up.
6.0
The 2018 Chevrolet Sonic remains a good choice among subcompacts, though it’s now aging and losing some luster.
4.3
The teensy 2018 Ford Fiesta lives its best life as a scintillating turbo-4 ST.
6.0
The 2018 Honda Fit spaces out when it comes to economy-car goodness.
5.4
The 2018 Hyundai Accent clouds the new-or-used question, but only in well-equipped Limited trim.
3.8
The Nissan Versa is affordable transportation that has an appealing price—especially for students. It’s not quick but it is spacious, especially in hatchback form.
