All new  2017 Toyota Yaris SE is a one of a kind suggestion in the subcompact portion, joining a portion of the business' most famous wellbeing advances with some shockingly dated—but still successful—powertrain choices. Therefore, it's in a one of a kind position for Toyota. 

Consider: Last year, the Toyota Camry fair size vehicle was the smash hit auto in the nation, and the Toyota Corolla—including the Corolla iM—drove the reduced fragment. In the interim, in the subcompact fragment, the Yaris hatchback spoke to short of what one-tenth the offers of that classification's No. 1 decision, the Nissan Versa. A forthcoming all-new Yaris is relied upon to turn things around in the 2018 model year, yet until that time how about we investigate the momentum display with its open lodge (for individuals and freight) and standard driver-help measures.The MSRP for the Yaris lineup reflects its standard Toyota Safety Sense-C technology, so the 5-door hatchback opens at $16,375. That’s more than $2K less than the least-expensive Chevy Sonic hatchback, but it’s about the same amount higher than for an entry-level Ford Fiesta hatch. On the other hand, the Yaris 5-door hatchhback does come standard with an automatic transmission, while those rivals charge extra to move up from a manual. Also, when Yaris owners move up themselves, to a trim like the Yaris LE, it's only $17,285.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Like all the other 2017 Yaris models, the SE joins is powered by a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine that produces 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque. Maximum driver engagement is found with the standard 5-speed manual transmission. The optional automatic is a 4-speed.

Efficiency-minded customers should not be be worried about the number of gears in those transmissions. The manual-transmission Yaris has EPA ratings of 30 mpg city/36 mpg highway/33 mpg combined, and the car’s fuel-economy grades with the automatic are 30 mpg city/35 mpg highway/32 mpg combined.  Toyota has retuned the car’s suspension for the SE trim, switched up to 16-inch alloy wheels (with a machined finish), and also fitted this economical little hatchback with 4-wheel disc brakes.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Per Toyota: “If the Yaris looks like one of those intriguing, fun European compacts you wish they’d offer in the U.S., that’s because it is.” Indeed, the Yaris was designed in the south of France and carries more than a dash of that country’s fashion-forward approach to style. All new 2017 Toyota Yaris SE then adds a number of more athletic touches to attract the hot-hatch crowd. Among the new cues are the previously mentioned alloy wheels, along with a rear spoiler, rear diffuser, and black exterior trim that includes a model-specific grille and piano-black accents. A final sophisticated touch comes is a lighting package for the Yaris SE. Here, Toyota provides integrated fog lights with a chrome surround, projector-beam headlights with an LED light-bar accent, and LED daytime running lights.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Not surprisingly, the 2017 Toyota Yaris SE further distinguishes itself with an enthusiast-friendly cabin, complete with front-row seats trimmed in a premium sport fabric. A leather-trimmed steering-wheel—with audio controls—is complemented by a leather-trimmed shift lever, and the interior color theme features piano-black trim and white contrast stitching. Also worth noting: Toyota has made a significant effort to ensure a quiet cabin for Yaris owners, who enjoy the benefits of acoustic glass in the windshield and foam-type sound insulation in key places.

As for cargo capacity, the Yaris offers a generous 15.6 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, which Toyota says is “about the size of a midsize sedan’s trunk.” Of course, the Yaris also allows you to fold its rear seats, with a 60/40 split, for a massive increase in available room.

 The same Entune Audio system is standard in all Yaris models, which gives the entry-level trim an impressive advantage over the base setups in some other subcompacts. After all, that means even the Yaris starter models comes with a 6.1-inch touchscreen, six speakers, steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, and Apple-friendly touches like a USB port with iPod connectivity and HD Radio with iTunes tagging. Additionally standard is hands-free calling and audio streaming,Bluetooth wireless technology for voice recognition, and again, that’s for the entry model. The flipside here is that the only infotainment upgrade offered for the 2017 Toyota Yaris SE is a post-factory navigation system that can be installed at the dealership (or the car’s port of entry).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Certainly a highlight for the 2017 Toyota Yaris SE—and for the lineup as a whole—is the standard Toyota Safety Sense C (TSS-C) package. Geared for three key assistance scenarios, the TSS-C technologies leverages camera- and laser-based sensors for lane-departure alert, automatic highbeams, and pre-collision braking capability. The latter system includes forward collision warning and automatic braking that can reduce the vehicle’s speed by up to 19 mph in some situations. No other mainstream subcompact has all three technologies as standard equipment on its entry trims, and neither do many of the more premium entries.

For more protection, the front seats are designed to reduce whiplash-type injuries in certain scenarios, and Toyota also managed to fit nine airbags into the Yaris cabin. The Yaris has a 4-Star Overall Safety Score from the NHTSA. That's about ordinary for subcompacts, as other 4-Star performers include the Hyundia Accent and Ford Fiesta.Buyers shopping for a 2017 Toyota Yaris SE will likely come across the brand’s new subcompact sedan—the Yaris iA (photo)—and wonder exactly what’s the difference between the two. Beyond the whole sedan vs. hatchback bodies, folks should know that the Yaris iA originated as the Scion iA, which was part of Toyota’s recently shuttered youth brand. More relevant for drivers is this: The Scion iA was first developed as a Mazda subcompact not currently sold in the United States. So, except for the “Toyota Yaris” in its name, the iA sedan doesn’t share much with its hatchback sibling.
