New for 2019

The 2019 Yaris sedan, formerly known as the Yaris iA, receives a mid-cycle refresh that includes a revised front fascia, and three trim levels, L, LE and XLE. Hatchback models get pedestrian detection as standard across the lineup.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 Toyota Yaris is a front-drive subcompact sedan and hatchback that slots below the compact Corolla as the automaker's entry-level model. Hatchback models are also available in two- or four-door variants. Sedan models are available in L, LE and XLE grades while the hatchback is available in L, LE, and SE trims.

Yaris L sedan and hatch: The base L trim in the sedan comes standard with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system, a USB port, a rearview camera and keyless entry. In the hatchback, the L trim comes with Toyota's Entune interface with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, a six-speaker audio system, a USB port, cloth upholstery, and a rearview camera.

Yaris LE sedan and hatch: Moving up to the LE grades adds extras like fog lights, keyless start, and 16-inch alloy wheels. For the hatchback, moving up to the LE trim adds 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, and keyless entry.

Yaris SE hatch: Available only on the hatchback, the Yaris SE gets projector headlights with LED daytime running lights, a roof spoiler, a unique grille design, 16-inch alloy wheels, an upgraded Entune interface with a 7.0-inch touchscreen, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter.

Yaris XLE sedan: Range-topping XLE models are exclusive to the sedan and come standard with leatherette upholstery, LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and a rear lip spoiler.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 Yaris is powered by 1.5-liter I-4 with 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque. Gearbox options for the hatchback include a five-speed manual or four speed automatic while the sedan can be had with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. EPA fuel economy ratings for the sedan are 30/39 mpg city/highway for the manual and 32/40 mpg for the automatic. Expect the hatch to retain the 2018's 30/35-36 mpg ratings.

Safety

The NHTSA gave the 2019 Yaris sedan a five-star overall safety rating (out of a possible five stars). The hatchback was only tested for front crash and rollover safety, where it received four stars. The IIHS has yet to test the 2019 Yaris but it has tested the 2018 model in both body styles. Sedan models received Good scores in many categories except the headlights test where it received a Poor rating. Hatchback models received similar scores except for the driver's side front small overlap test where it only received a Marginal rating.

In the IIHS' front crash prevention test, the 2018 Yaris sedan received an Advanced rating after it avoided a collision in a 12-mph test.

The 2019 Yaris hatchback comes standard with automatic high beams, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning. The 2019 Yaris sedan comes with forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking as standard.

Utility

The 2018 Yaris hatchback has 15.3 to 15.6 cubic feet of cargo space depending on the trim level and can be expanded via the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats. Sedan variants have a 13.4-cubic-foot trunk, which can also be expanded via the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

What We Think

In a 2015 First Drive, we said the Yaris hatchback is surprisingly roomy for its size with good room for front and rear passengers but comes at the cost of a smaller cargo area. In low-speed driving, the Yaris hatchback is easy to maneuver, but throw it into a corner and you're met with plenty of body roll. With so little power, it takes time for the car to get up to speed, especially going uphill. Ride comfort is good for a small car, and its steering is responsive.

The Yaris sedan offers a comfortable ride and nimble handling, as we noted in a 2016 First Test. Its light curb weight also means it feels quicker than its 106-hp engine might suggest; however, it struggles to move when the car is loaded. Inside, the seats are comfortable and the center stack controls are logically arranged.

Cool Fact

The Toyota Yaris uses two different 1.5-liter four-cylinder engines; the hatchback uses a port-injected unit developed in-house by Toyota while the sedan, which is essentially a Mazda2 (sold in other markets), uses a direct-injected Mazda unit with a high compression ratio for improved efficiency.
