Who's buying the Toyota Yaris?

The Toyota Yaris is a terrible car. Who's buying this thing, really? It offers none of the expected Toyota qualities - at a minimun Toyotas generally have a smooth, quiet ride. Turns out, a LOT of people really like that in a car. But the Yaris is noisy and harsh. The ride is stiff yet it doesn't deliver especially sporty handling. It wouldn't be so bad if there weren't several other better choices for just a little more money. The Honda Fit is much better and starts at about $15,000. The 2011 Ford Fiesta is better than both the Fit and the Yaris and its base price is $14,000. Even the Hyundai Accent is better. There is some good news however, if you walk, ride the bus or drive a Smart ForTwo, the Yaris will seem like a big step up.

2010 Toyota Yaris - skip it.
