The Yaris 1. 3 E gets the same all-black interior as the Vios 1. 3 E, down to the faux stitching on the dashboard and door panels. The orange accents on the seats and the instrument gauges give the cabin a sportier vibe than the Vios´s. The orange gauge accents, in particular, are much nicer to look at than the glaringly fake brushed steel on the Vios gauges.
The cabin is spacious, as you´d expect, and the seats are more supportive than the squishy ones in the previous model. There´s even a good bit of trunk space, as well as two Isofix latch points in the back. As in the Vios, there´s a lack of useful cubby space up front, but the air-conditioned cupholders do just fine for holding cell phones, too.
The 84hp 1. 3-liter gasoline engine is revvy and responsive, though it doesn´t have enough muscle to raise your pulse. Especially not when mated to the four-speed automatic transmission. While it upshifts and downshifts properly in response to how much pressure you put on the gas pedal, the lack of intermediate gearing compared to newer DCTs and CVTs is telling.
Fuel economy in traffic is similar to 1. 4- and 1. 5-liter competitors, at 6-8km/L. Understandable given how much bigger this Yaris is than the old one. Highway economy is similar to the 1. 3 Vios we used a while back, at 16km/L at 100kph and 19-20km/L at 80kph.
