Everything you wanted to know about the latest Toyota Yaris cars

The Toyota Yaris was originally released as a supermini style vehicle by Toyota back in 1999 and since then has gone from strength to strength, selling in huge numbers across the globe thanks to its deceptively spacious interior, excellent craftsmanship and the usual levels of Toyota reliability.

The first generation of Yaris' ran from 1999 to 2005 and bore the name Echo rather than Yaris in certain territories. The car came in three main varieties, namely hatchback, coupe and sedan.

2005 saw the introduction of the current generation of Yaris vehicles, and marked the worldwide branding of the cars as Yaris - removing the Echo label previously held in some countries. The hatchback versions are based upon the Japanese Toyota Vitz, while the sedan version is based on the Japanese Toyota Belta, neither of which are available in Western markets.

The latest iterations of the Yaris are widely regarded as the best yet. The introduction of Toyota's Optimal Drive system has made the Yaris even more economic than ever, regardless of which model you choose. The car continues to boast the maximum 5 Star Euro NCAP safety rating, which proves Toyota's continued dedication to the safety of their drivers, regardless of the call backs issued in the last twelve months.

Drivers can now select from the Yaris T2, TR, T Spirit and SR in three or five door variations. The T2, the cheapest of the bunch, is available at an incredibly reasonable £10,530 - including £700 of customer savings offered by Toyota on their official website, located at toyota.co.uk. The SR is the most expensive of the latest Toyota Yaris cars, coming in at £13,015 including £1,700 in customer savings.
