The 2008 Toyota Yaris enters its sophomore year as a true contender in the sub-compact class, but don’t let its size fool you. It boasts quality construction, excellent fuel economy and a comfortable ride. The Yaris is offered in base and S trims, in three door Hatchback and four door Sedan body styles. It boasts seating capacity for up to five and excellent EPA estimates in the 29 City/36 Highway range. While not loaded to the gills, the Yaris comes adequately equipped with air, cruise, keyless entry, AM/FM/CD, front and side-head airbags, ABS brakes and intermittent wipers.Read more Read less

Low initial price; terrific fuel efficiency; compact dimensions with easy maneuverability.
The Toyota Yaris ranks as one of the lowest-priced small cars for 2008, and has especially low running costs and a longstanding reputation (with its predecessor, the Echo) for reliability. Fuel efficiency is the best in the segment, according to Toyota, and with its tight turning radius and good maneuverability the Yaris makes a very frugal city commuter.
