Low-speed pre-collision system

A feature of the car that sets it apart from the other segments in its price range is its standard safety feature of the low-speed pre-collision system, which monitors the road directly in front of the driver of the car and helps them to prevent a collision with another vehicle. This low-speed feature provides an audio/visual alert and braking assistance when it detects a potential collision. Interestingly, in the event the driver doesn’t respond at all, the system can even automatically apply the brakes.

The response and quickness of the steering provide easy cornering and cruising through the city. Its 1.5-litre engine which generates a total of 105 hp makes it comfortable to run at high-speeds at the highways.

Toyota Yaris Safety

The Yaris Sedan tends to provide a safe and secure ride to its occupants. The safety features which come as standard in the car include dynamic stability control (DSC), a traction control system (TCS), brake assist (BA), electronic brake-force distribution (EBD), anti-lock braking (ABS), and Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), along with front driver and passenger airbags. Additionally, the tyre-pressure monitor and stability control now come as standard.

Cons of the Toyota Yaris Sedan

No Android Play

Unlike some of its competitors, the Toyota Yaris specs sheet does include Android Auto support. Drivers who are used to having Android integration or find it easy to use might find it difficult to use the Yaris. However, the updated model gets Apple CarPlay.

Bit Slow

The 1.5-litre engine might be efficient to pull 95 kmph, starting from 0 in just 10 seconds but the powertrain configuration still has room for development. The engine output can be questioned when it comes to other competitors of the Sedan segment. 


The Toyota Yaris has a sleek interior, user-friendly features, great fuel economy, and an above-average predicted reliability rating which ensures a safe and economic ride and affordability at its price tag. It’s also agile and enjoyable to drive. The Yaris is the least-expensive model in the Toyota lineup, and hosts some of the most standard features across its segment, making it a good value car in its category.
