The Toyota Corolla is often touted as being 'the' entry-level new Toyota sedan, and although it's definitely a top model for the brand, there's another sedan that's even more budget friendly. If you haven't guessed, we're talking about the Toyota Yaris sedan, and we have a few of them at our Sandusky Toyota dealership!

The 2019 Toyota Yaris has some exciting updates for the new model year. For starters, it changed its name from the Yaris iA to the Yaris. It also grew from having one trim to three! Now you have more say in how you drive around Norwalk OH in budget-savvy style.

Powertrain

The Toyota Yaris has the L, LE, and XLE trims, and all three have a 1.5L engine with 106 horsepower. Shoppers can choose from either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic. We also love that a driving mode selector is standard, so you can decide if you want to make your way around Lorain in the Normal or Sport setting.

Exterior

The 2019 Toyota Yaris definitely has its own look, and its bulky, athletic build makes it stand out in a segment that can easily feel flimsy. The Yaris has a wide grille with plenty of angles, chrome-tipped exhaust, and a shaper, menacing headlight style. On the LE trim there's standard fog lights and on the XLE there are standard LED headlights, which is very impressive on a vehicle of this price point!

Technology

Since the Toyota Yaris is aimed at college students and young professionals, Toyota wanted to make sure it'd still have impressive tech features that this demographic wants. That's why all trims come with Bluetooth, a three-month trial to SiriusXM, and a surprisingly large 7-inch touchscreen! For standard safety features there's a backup camera and low-speed pre-collision system. Now you can drive around Amherst OH and beyond with added peace of mind.

Here are a few other notable technologies on each trim.

  • L: audio controls on the steering wheel
  • LE: smart key with a push-button start
  • XLE: rain-sensing wipers and automatic climate control
