2020 Toyoa Yaris

In the 2020 Toyota Yaris, comfort, technology and efficiency come standard.

What’s new for the 2020 Toyota Yaris?

For the 2020 model year, this peppy hatchback is adding complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. This technology displays smartphone apps on the central infotainment screen, so you can use them without looking down at your phone. Even better, all you have to do is press a button on the steering wheel to use your phone’s voice controls.

Why choose the 2020 Yaris?

Get this subcompact sedan because you want a great deal on a fuel-efficient commuter vehicle. These Toyotas start at just $15,650, putting them within reach of just about all budgets. Even a fully loaded Yaris only sets you back $18,750, giving you a great deal on comfort features and high-tech extras like LED headlights and simulated leather upholstery.

Which 2020 Toyota Yaris trim level is best?

Choose from three sedan trim levels: the base L, midgrade LE, and top-of-the-line XLE. The one that’s right for you supplies the features you want at a price that makes sense for you personally.

All three Yaris models feature the same fuel-efficient engine, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder rated for 106 horses and 103 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed manual transmission is standard, but shoppers can always select the optional six-speed automatic for a more relaxing on-road experience.

The entry-level L comes at the most affordable price, but it’s also nicely stacked with comfort and convenience items. The infotainment system, including a 7-inch display and voice recognition technology, is standard. Two USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity make it easy to connect a compatible smartphone. And, of course, the Yaris treats you to road-trip-ready comfort with a height-adjustable driver’s seat and air conditioning. High-tech safety features include a rearview camera and forward collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking.

Upgrade to the LE for keyless ignition and entry and a bevy of exterior features, including foglights, LED turn signals, and a rear spoiler.

The top-trim XLE is the only Yaris that comes standard with the six-speed automatic transmission. It also introduces some upscale extras, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic climate control. And you can always see the XLE coming, thanks to its impressive LED headlights.

What’s the 2020 Toyota Yaris mpg?

One of the best reasons to buy a new Yaris is its excellent fuel economy. With the six-speed automatic transmission, this sedan earns 35 mpg combined (32 city/40 highway mpg). The six-speed manual transmission only alters those numbers slightly, dropping to 34 mpg combined (30/39 mpg).

2020 Toyota Yaris on the Road

Is the Toyota Yaris a good car?

Besides its friendly price tag and efficient performance, the Yaris also has a solid reputation for reliability and safety. In government crash tests, both the sedan and hatchback models earned perfect five-star ratings for overall protection.

The Yaris is also backed by Toyota’s impressive warranty coverage. Basic new car coverage lasts 36 months or 36,000 miles. Limited powertrain coverage lasts 60 months or 60,000 miles. Hopefully nothing goes wrong. But if it does, the 2020 Yaris comes standard with a safety net.
