The Toyota Yaris is one of the safest cars in its class thanks to every model coming with driver, passenger, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags to give a total of seven.
Safety equipment is quite good, with electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake-force distribution and Brake Assist included in all models. There are nine airbags, including a driver knee bag, and LE and SE models include an engine immobilize
Toyota’s Electronic Stability Control system also keeps it on the right track even in slippery conditions. Anti-lock brakes work in conjunction with emergency brake assist to apply full pressure on the brakes in critical conditions, while brakeforce distribution makes sure the stopping power is sent to where it can best be used to slow the Yaris as quickly and effectively as possible.
Whether you get the three-door or the five-door hatchback, the 2015 Yaris is far from the largest car in the segment. Its size makes it maneuverable and easy to park in tight city streets, but rear-seat space suffers as a result. It’s also not particularly space-efficient. But with a retune of the suspension and some additional noise insulation for 2015, it rides better and more quietly.
The front seats are a great starting point for getting acquainted with the Yaris. They have plenty of room, and we think they feel more comfortable than those of the Nissan Versa. They’re wide enough and have long enough lower cushions that feel like they’re from a car a size larger; we’re especially fond of the slightly better contouring and side support that SE models get in their upgraded seats.
Despite as much as we like the seats, it’s rather tough to get into an ideal driving position unless you’re maybe average height or shorter, with short arms. This isn’t a car for the tall and lanky, as the lower seat cushion doesn’t tilt back or down much and the steering column doesn’t telescope at all (it only tilts to a limited range). New fabrics throughout the line no longer make this interior feel like one big lint brush—the upholstery is actually quite nice in the SE, although you won’t find leather here.
