The Yaris is a typical model showing how worthy Toyota is for its leading position in the auto industry: excellent quality, great reputation and satisfaction as well. All Yaris versions combine solid integrity, an outstanding fuel mileage and an inexpensive sticker that underlie every Toyota model

We believe that this article will be helpful and informative for all Toyota lovers in particular and all car users in general. We also go into details for the hatchback version in this review. 

2. Toyota Yaris 2008 model lineup

3. Toyota Yaris 2008 interior

The Toyota Yaris 2008 interior can surprise any car user with its excellent space efficiency and smart cockpit packaging. Owning the longest wheelbase in its class, along with a tall and widened roofline, the Yaris also benefits a roomy cockpit. Meanwhile, it offers less legroom than headroom, though every seat can house up 6-foot-tall occupants with comfort.

The fabric upholstery comes standard, looks luxurious and offers good grip in the corners. The front seats are supportive for backs, but the cushions are quite short and flat, so long-legged motorists may not benefit optimum comfort and get less body support. The seating position for the driver is finely upright and opens a generous sight, but the steering wheel feels a bit awkward.

In order to enter into the rear seats, you can go via the shoulder area of the front occupant seat. The hatch’s rear seats offer a reclining feature that raise the seatback angle from 10° to 28°. The cargo space measures at 9.5 cubic feet and it will be 25.7 cubic feet if the rear seats are folded down.

The Toyota Yaris 2008 features a center-mounted gauge cluster with a general simplicity of design. The S-model liftbacks receives an additional tachometer while the outboard cup holders are standard for all versions in the lineup.

To give a verdict, the Toyota Yaris 2008 interior is comfortable with classy upholstery and intuitive controls.

4. Toyota Yaris 2008 engine and performance

All Yaris versions are driven by the front wheels and armed with a 1.5L engine which is capable of cranking out 106 hp. The Toyota Yaris 2008 engine works in a conjunction with a 5-speed manual transmission and an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.

The engine showcases a good performance with smooth ride with a sporty handling capability. The steering wheel offers good sense while the braking system can operate well with confidence. Pedal feel is direct and even excellent.  

The 5-speed manual transmission is fun to drive, both on city roads and in in the wide-open spaces. It offers well-spaced gear ratios and smooth shifts. Meanwhile, the 4-speed automatic transmission also works fine. Some acceleration power is weaken, but sharp downshifts and the smooth upshifts make it become a good friend of the commuter.

Speaking of the hatch’s fuel economy, the engine drinks 29 mpg on city roads and 36 mpg on the Highway (or 35 on the Highway for the automatic).

Walking around, the Toyota Yaris 2008 boasts an appealing appearance. The exterior features a theme of “powerful simplicity” yet still cute at first glance. The hatch is adorned with wedgy profile, outstanding characters on the body, T-grille, creased hood lines and big front halogen headlight clusters.

Most of all exterior elements are body-colored but they show a harmony to the eyes with a good arrangement and a strategic placement of black decor on the two strips, on the B-pillar and around the A-pillar. The base of the windshield, fog lamp surrounds, front grilles and the length of the roof are also highlighted by the black cue.

The rear hatch is high enough to hold a 6-foot-tall person standing below it with comfort. The function of the hatch feels quite reasonable while opening of the hatch is also much easier with 2 struts, and the closure did not need more than a slight downward push.
