Old reliable gets a revamp
Toyota’s Yaris has been updated, but not in a way that will alienate its loyal customer base, writes Shane O’Donoghue.
The Toyota Yaris is one of those cars that rarely blows motoring journalists like myself away, yet clearly ticks a lot of boxes for buyers. Its eighth position last year in the Irish new car sales charts might not sound all that impressive, but the only car above it that could be considered a rival is the evergreen Ford Fiesta. Given that the Fiesta name arrived on the market about 20 years before the Yaris – and that Irish buyers are known to be relatively loyal to their car makes and models – there’s no shame in the runner-up position.
