TO THE POINTWhat’s New? The Toyota Yaris is an all-new subcompact for 2007, replacing the Toyota Echo and complementing the Scion xA and xB models.s Selling Points: Price, relatively spacious cabin, EPA-estimated fuel economy Deal Breakers: Lack of engine grunt, low-grade materials, cupholder and gauge cluster design, ABS and side airbags are optional
Rear seat passengers in the 2007 Toyota Yaris get the same stiff cushions as their fellow passengers up front, yet they’re offset by soft front seatbacks that are easy on the knees, a fold-down padded armrest (S model only), and wide-opening doors that allow for easy ingress/egress. For a subcompact car, the Yaris sedan offers a surprising amount of rear leg and foot room, however, head room is a bit tight. Adjustable headrests are provided for up to three passengers.
