Finding the right car for commuting can be difficult if you are not sure what you need. However, Toyota makes this decision easier with the Toyota Yaris. It is designed to be a compact commuter vehicle that gives you all of the factors that you need for an enjoyable and comfortable commute. The 2018 model year is approaching, and Toyota is ready to release a new 2018 version of the Yaris. Here is a look at what makes the 2018 Yaris the perfect commuter car.
Good Gas Mileage
One of the best features of the 2018 Toyota Yaris is its gas mileage. City driving is notoriously rough on gas mileage due to the continuous starting and stopping of city driving. That’s why Toyota gave the Yaris an engine that is not only good on gas mileage but also gives you the acceleration and stronger driving experience that you would want. It gets 30 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway, which makes it an effective vehicle for getting around without needing to stop for gas constantly.
Toyota continues to develop new safety features that take advantage of automated technologies. The result is a standard set of safety features that help Toyota consistently rate among the best in terms of safety. The 2018 Toyota Yaris comes with the Toyota Safety Sense C package which includes several of Toyota’s new safety features. These include a pre-collision warning and automatic emergency braking system, a lane departure warning system, and automatic high beams. That way, you will be far less likely to get in an accident. Although the 2018 Yaris does not have an official crash test rating, the 2017 Yaris has a near-perfect score making it one of the safest car options on the road.
If you need a commuter car, then a larger vehicle is out of the question unless you work in a place where you need a truck or large SUV. Compact vehicles were designed to be smaller and easier to fit into tight spaces than other vehicles. The 2018 Toyota Yaris is a compact vehicle for exactly this purpose. You can drive it even on the most compact city streets and park it nearly anywhere. When you have to commute to work, the ability to park anywhere makes a big difference in how comfortable your commute is.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris comes in a range of different options including new paint designs and two different hatchback configurations. You can start with the more compact three-door version, or try the larger five-door option. Both come in a range of different colors and customization options, but you still get the same value and features that you are looking for.
