Arrow Like a PRIUS... BUY THE YARIS SEDAN......LOOK AT THIS>>>>

I did my homework before my wife and I turned in our 6 cyl pontiac for the 2010 YARIS SEDAN IN BEAUTIFUL HOT RED . seats in front are higher with height ajustment like lexus plenty of room in front and back for 5 and flat rear floor for coolers, big feet ( im 13" myself no problem ) whatever. The stock cd and radio is quite good. Ive installed car audio for a living and the 6x9 speakers with a real trunk for the natural bass in the rear, beat any prius sounds handsdown. a real trunk with more room than a corolla doesnt hurt eather. Check edmunds.com, you tube, whatever. OH and you'll never guessone of the most popular cars in europe is guess who.... crash tests...mpg...star saftey system like a camry with 2010 and later models all top scores. the Yaris Sedan is the secret love child or a camry and a prius...just look at all the specs. looks like dad with camry styling and sips gas like its mom the prius .... a perfect marrage.
test drive the sedan. roommy, CAN get 40 mpg at 65*70 MPH NOT 56 MPH LIKE PRIUS DASH GAUGE RECOMMENDS.... easy I do it with a 4 speed auto with overdrive. TIP: try to avoid the TRANSMISSION called CVT read on many web sites why. not as much fun to drive since the 1.5L engine is the same as many prius current models have but one of the best parts is the lean sedan design and low weight of only 2325lbs vs. close to 3000 with others ( prius too) in and out of is class, and more power than newer prius cars YARIS MODELS ALL HAVE 106 hp or DRIVING power and 103 of torque the hihgest ratio in its class... not the 73 hp in a prius C which is a JOKE, sorry C. DRIVE THE GEM OF TOYOTA'S FORWARD THINKING. CHECK THE SPECS....RIDE in the 2010 or 2011 SEDANS at MANY HERTZ AND toyota DEALERS IN YOUR AREA.
GREAT CAR....GREAT VALUE...big trunk not a overstuffed hatch.....turns on a dime....amazing MPG. preformer and no recalls.....DRIVE ONE AND SEE WHY 240000 for a prius runabout is maybe a bit too much when there is YARIS SEDAN at 12500 .... dont listen to salesman hype do the math between how many years at 4.50 a gallon ( yes its coming...you know it) and 35-40 mpg hwy in a Yaris sedan !gets with a auto 5 speed ( again read the specs from toyota not the salesman pitching the high priced Prius.... and the must drive at 55-60 miles per hour prius dash gauge game ( see on you tube and read the driver prius recommondations to get 46-52 MPG. ( you have to work at it and train yourself to hypermile read about it) like my wife said after DRIVING both. I want a car with some guts...NOT ANOTHER VIDEO GAME TO PLAY IN THE CAR ( aka Prius DASH DISPLAY MONITOR SYSTEM ). Prius runs only for a mile or two on electric is that far enough in the real world for you?... JUST CHECK OUT THE SEDAN YARIS, YOUR WALLET AND YOUR MIND WILL THANK YOU FOR ONE.....HAPPY TRAILS..JAY

You should be a Yaris salesman.
I'm glad you're happy with your purchase, and totally agree. When it comes to practical economical transportation, a Yaris gives you the very best bang for the buck.

Thanks for confirming my decision...I own a 2008 Yaris sedan. I get 40-50mpg at 50-55mph. I was looking to trade it in on a new Prius C. But when I calculated the mpg vs higher cost for the C...then compared it to a Yaris...I am going to stay with my Yaris.
In five years of driving it...I have had absolutely nothing go wrong on my little red car!

Arrow get that first car love again.....

Yes... I admit it. My first car was a 67 vw bug 4 speed manual trans in a baby blue color. I loved what that little car could do.. Dated my wife in that car too. It went up mountains ( in third gear of course ) on camping trips and turned on a dime as well. got great mpg and was pround of my power blue putt putt. Im gettimg the same feeling again for THIS yaris sedan I did then. weird thing is....The gas tanks are about the same size, turn radias is better in the yaris and the engine was 1600 cc in the VW but the yaris stock engine is a 1500 cc and I have the automatic.... love it. BEATS honda fit in dead heat from 0 to 60mph all day. trully amazaing what toyota has done.... . and at 45-50 mpg and strong peppy engine with std. 4 speed with overdrive too. Wow best money Ive spent in a long time......THANKS TOYOTA FOR A TRUE MARVEL. READ MY OTHER BLOGS ABOUT THE REAL ORIGIN OF THR YARIS SEDAN....THE EURO-ASIAN ANSWER TO A PRIUS AND LOOKS GREAT TOO...SORRY PRIUS

Shoot yeah, the sedan is where it's at! Just sucks they aren't making them anymore. I have an 09 and plan to keep it as long as possible.

1967 was one of the finest years for the VW bug. When I was a kid, my friend had a red one and we had lots of fun taking it to the drag races at Lyon's. He ran it stock with an EMPI stinger on the header. It was slow, but it sounded really fast!
