The interior of this sub-compact hatchback doesn’t disappoint, you get what you should in a car at this range. The moment we entered the Yaris, the first word that came to our mind was “minimalist”. No fancy buttons or styling here as you’d expect. Being built in France, the Yaris showcases the fit and finish comparable to its European counterparts.

This supermini is equipped with a start/stop engine button, which has become a norm these days even for Japanese cars. Not all hatchbacks have this feature, which is a plus for the Yaris.

Basic necessities like cup holders, glove box, and small storage spaces are clearly evident. Dual zone air-conditioning is also available in the Yaris. Controls and dials are easily accessible. Buttons on the dashboard have quality finishes and also a tactile feel to them.

Driving position of the Yaris is great with excellent view of the front. This is mostly important during city driving where narrow roads and pedestrians are always present. This brings safety up a notch. The A-pillar however provides a bit of a blindspot when turning.

There are paddle shifters too, for your once-in-a-while racing adventure. We wouldn’t bet on a win, though. The multi-functional steering wheel isn’t clustered with too many buttons, with clean white stitching on the inside.

The Yaris is equipped with a touch-screen infotainment system which is the norm for well-specced Toyotas. We hardly encountered any trouble linking the Bluetooth to our mobile phones, or to set to our favourite radio station. Satellite navigation is an option to be added into the system as well.

Driver and front passenger seats are comfortable and don’t make you feel cramped at all. Rear seats have very generous legroom and that is something you don’t easily get in hatchbacks these days. The rear easily sits three adults comfortably.

Boot space in the Yaris is more than sufficient for grocery shopping, and at 286 litres there’s no reason to raise an eyebrow. Additional boot space is of course available with the knockdown rear seats but there’s a downside – they wouldn’t fold flat.

I must say that I did have quite a good service experience with SwiftQuote in my recent endeavour to sell my car. One of your agents by the name of Ian was rather extremely helpful in getting me two quotes.
