The Top Gear car review:Toyota Yaris
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
Again, Toyota has spent big on the interior with this mid-life facelift. Goodness knows, it needed to. The old one was woefully let down by cheap, shiny plastics and, while they’re still in evidence here, the bulk of it has improved significantly. It’s also brought about another step up in kit, with the Toyota Touch infotainment system improved once again – the large, high-res screen is very impressive. You can even get apps for it, although few of them are apps we’ve actually heard of.
What hasn’t changed is the Yaris’ acclaimed roominess. The tall cabin is spacious and, thanks to better seats up front, more comfortable than it was. Even noise levels have been cut on this new one.
