The 3-door option comes in either the L or LE trim, and the 5-door option comes in the L, LE, or SE (the sportiest of them all) trim. Choose whether the 3-door or 5-door option would work best for your lifestyle and which of the available trims best suits your preferences. The 2018 Toyota Yaris offers something for everyone.
The exterior of the 2018 Yaris is slightly redesigned, featuring new style elements in both the front and rear of the vehicle, while maintaining the same classic chassis that is recognized and appreciated by its fans. On its front end, the 2018 Yaris now has chrome surrounding the grille and a new front bumper. The rear now features wider taillights and a reworked bumper that includes embedded reflectors to help give the back of the car an overall wider appearance and make it more easily seen.
The new Yaris features an LED Daytime Running Lights accent light bar to brighten up the exterior of the car a little bit more. With 16-inch machined alloy wheels (which add to this year’s overall sporty upgrade to the Yaris’s look) that boast well-designed dark accents, the Yaris takes you anywhere you want to go in style. A new color option will now be available with the 2018 Toyota Yaris as well, with the options of Blue Eclipse as a full-body color or Blue Eclipse with a Black Sand roof.
The 2018 Yaris still comes with the standard fabric interior of previous years’ models, but, with fabric-trimmed seats, the interior offers a hint of eye-catching design and ultimate comfort. An upgraded dashboard, now with a more streamlined look and functionality that is more intuitive for the driver, serves as the hub for all the driver’s needs and makes handling the Yaris easier than ever. The tilt steering wheel with audio controls allows you to put safety first when making phone calls or adjusting the music that is playing.
The 2018 Yaris also has a sport analog instrument panel with LCD information display. Here, the driver can easily and quickly see the current time, outside temperature, and trip mileage. Plus, the hatchback component of the Yaris provides the subcompact vehicle with approximately 15 cubic feet of cargo space. With the Yaris, you can go wherever you want and take everything you want with you!
Toyota’s 2018 Yaris comes with Toyota’s standard Entune Audio. The Entune Audio of the new Yaris model functions from its 6.1-inch touchscreen with satellite radio, Scout-connected navigation app, quick-charge USB port, Siri Eyes Free, and hands-free phone capability and music streaming powered via Bluetooth. The standard backup camera in the 2018 Yaris (also proudly featured in models of years past) continues to allow the driver to navigate the most crowded and difficult parking lots with confidence and ease.
The 2018 Yaris comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense C (TSS-C), one of Toyota’s variations of its standard safety systems for its vehicles. With TSS-C, the Yaris has the standard Pre-Collision System. This Pre-Collision System contains a front collision warning with automatic braking, meaning the car is able to detect a potential collision due to a pedestrian or other obstacle in front of it, and automatically brake to stop or reduce the speed of the vehicle to avoid an accident. Similarly, the standard Lane Departure Alert found in the Yaris can detect and avoid the risk of a potential accident by alerting the driver when the vehicle begins to stray from its lane.
Automatic High Beams (AHB) in the 2018 Yaris make driving at night safer and simpler than ever. With the ability to detect oncoming traffic, AHB automatically toggle between high-beam and low-beam lights to both allow the driver to see their surroundings most clearly and to refrain from blinding any other nearby drivers. The 2018 Yaris also has nine airbags (including a knee airbag), Star Safety System, and ToyotaCare to add to its safety features and make it fit in with the highest of safety standards held by Toyota as a brand.
With an EPA-estimated 30 city miles per gallon and 36 highway miles per gallon, you are sure to spend less time at the gas station and more time on the road with the 2018 Toyota Yaris. Its 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine delivers 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque.
The standard Yaris package offers a five-speed manual transmission, and a four-speed automatic transmission is also available. The vehicle contains an independent strut-style front suspension and torsion-beam rear suspension to give it a smooth and manageable drive across any type of road or terrain. An electronically-assisted rack-and-pinion steering element also contributes to making the 2018 Toyota Yaris incredibly responsive and agile.
