Which Toyota Yaris Should I Buy?
The Toyota Yaris iA came about when Toyota reached out to Mazda to design their 2017 Toyota Yaris. Mazda agreed and used the subcompact Scion as a base. As a result of the manufacturers’ collaboration, the Yaris iA is more like the Scion than it is like its own Toyota predecessors.
So, what’s the difference between a Yaris and a Yaris iA? While the Yaris is a hatchback, the Yaris iA is a four-door sedan. Both are subcompact cars marketed to those who want an affordable, fuel-efficient car. Go for the Yaris if you want more cargo capacity. But the Yaris iA might be more your speed if you’d rather have passenger space.
