No wonder Ford Motor Company quit making passengers cars, except for the legendary Ford Mustangs. The Asian car manufacturers are tough competition in today’s car world in quality and price.
The Toyota Yaris is one of the best buys on the market with a suggested retail price of $18,550, fully loaded without any optional equipment charges.
Here is a four-door sedan with seating for five passengers and a spacious trunk area. The power plant is a four-cylinder, 1.5L engine that is more than adequate in power and delivers 40 mpg on the open highways and an overall average of 35 mpg.
The Yaris XLE is an upscale sedan made in Salamanca, Mexico and one of those imports that President Trump has his tariff sites upon. The craftsmanship is excellent and the sedan has white ceramic paint with a black leatherette interior.
It is so easy to maneuver with McPherson strut suspension system and front-wheel drive. The Yaris was able to handle snowy roads with ease along with the crisp new tires.
A sound system that is easy to operate with eight speakers and satellite radio. Air bags front, rear and side, for an overall five-star safety rating found on Toyota vehicles.
Another Toyota specialty is the excellent automatic transmissions and the sequential drives that allows the drivers to select and lock in any of the six-speed gears from the main drive. This car has a sport’s mode for additional power that enhances the mighty four-cylinder engine.
The Yaris is a pleasure to drive and an economical sedan that is an all-around quality product that can fit many pocketbooks and purses for young and older drivers.
The Yaris has many of the Toyota safety systems, LED lights and halogen fog lights. So many features and all included in one low price and solid warranties.
