Not much is new for the Yaris sub-compact this year, but it does get a major safety systems upgrade. Traction control, vehicle stability control and Toyota's Star Safety System will all be standard. The Star Safety System alone includes ABS, electronic brake force distribution, and brake assist. For a little economy car, these are big improvements to safety.
Small, efficient car also at a small price; upgraded safety systems are some of the best in this class; great fuel economy
With the new safety systems upgrade, the starting price is $12,355 for the 3-door liftback. For those who need a little more room, or a few more doors, the 4-door sedan starts at a very reasonable $13,115. All Yaris models get an impressive 29 mpg city/36 mpg highway rating from the EPA.
