6/10
Overall verdict
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
 

For: 

Compact, honest, bombproof quality

Against: 

Still a poster boy for pensioners

Overview

What is it?

The latest Yaris is bigger, sharper and less blobby than before, but it remains a straight and sensible supermini rather than something radically leftfield. It is, furthermore, small. A given, you’d think, with it being a supermini and all that. Not necessarily though, as most of its rivals have swelled in recent years. But the Yaris remains compact, which pays dividends in town.
