TOYOTA Yaris review

NGC verdict 07.05.2015

On the basis of CO2 emissions the Toyota Yaris hybrid is the cleanest small car on sale which isn't electric. NOx emissions are virtually zero along with particulate emissions unlike with diesel engines. And if you are looking for a small hybrid car you are not exactly spoilt for choice. There’s the Yaris tested here or the more expensive Honda Jazz.

If you see cars purely as transport and most of your journeys are relatively short ones in mainly urban areas the Yaris hybrid has a lot to recommend it. Sales of the British-built Auris hybrid were up 20 per cent last year, accounting for almost half of all UK Auris sales.
