To further develop its distinctive European flavor, the 2016 Toyota Yaris features a low windshield angle, short overhangs, and wheels that are pushed out to the corners that all combine to create crisp lines and animal-like design. Drivers have the option of choosing between 3-door and 5-door models. It comes powered by a smooth-revving 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that 106 horsepower and 103 pound-foot of torque. It can be paired to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed electronically controlled automatic that features a lightweight design and low friction to increase fuel efficiency. The EPA estimates that it will average 30/37 mpg, city and highway, with the manual and 30/36 mpg with the automatic.

Once inside it offers drivers the option of three trim levels: L, LE, and SE. Standard features on the base L include air conditioning, sport-tuned electric power steering, and power accessories. The LE adds power mirrors, cruise control, steering wheel audio controls, and remote keyless entry.
