What’s it like to drive?
Used daytoday as a roundtown runabout, the Yaris GX combines utter practicality with a comfortable yet nimble demeanour.
Key controls (and notably the steering) are light to use, but accurate in their responses. Mechanical refinement does suffer a trifle conquering steeper hills, but the engine goes about its business during urban driving with a pleasing threecylinder thrum, and the continuously variable transmission is smooth and quite unobtrusive at urban speeds. Thanks to its compact dimensions and minimal overhangs, parking is a breeze.
While it wouldn’t be my vehicle of choice for long
