All in all, equipment in the 2018 Yaris is quite competitive for such a hatchback. Truthfully however, we still expect more work on the inside like the way the Japanese brand has done with the Yaris exterior.

4. Toyota Yaris 2018 Philippines: Safety Features
Being a B-segment hatchback cannot prevent the Yaris from being equipped with upscale safety features. The Yaris 2018 is more protective than ever thanks to:
- Seven airbags
- Anti-lock Braking System (ABS)
- Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
- Braking Assistance (BA)

5. Toyota Yaris 2018 Review: Engine & Performance
The new Toyota Yaris 1.5S variant uses the same 1.5-liter 4-cylinder Dual VVT-i engine as the current top-spec Yaris 1.5G. As it stands, it can dish out 107 hp @ 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of peak torque torque @ 4,200 rpm. This power permits the hatch to sprint from the stand still to 100 km/h within 9.8 seconds before topping out 180 km/h.
The mill is solely mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with variable drive modes: SPORT, ECO and paddel shifters.
The new Toyota Yaris 1.5S variant will likely use a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder Dual VVT-i engine
Concerning lower trims, perhaps the familiar 1.3-liter 1NR-FE powerplant with 99 hp and 123 Nm of torque will continue running the hatch. The engine comes aired to the same CVT in addition to a 5-speed manual.
As a city commuter, the Yaris performance is adequate, let alone its impressive fuel economy. When you crawl during horrible traffic in the city, the Yaris consumes only 8.8 km/L at average speed of 13 km/h.
On the highway roads, meanwhile, it generates decent fuel consumption of 15.3 km/L at 91 km/h on average.
As a city commuter, the Yaris performance is adequate
On the topic of ride and drive, it’s surprisingly comfortable for a small hatch. Assuredly, you cannot expect to drive a Camry yet the Yaris is passable. Due to tuned suspension system together with comfortable seating, passing city potholes is not a burden at all to the Yaris.
As well as that, brakes system is also reworked; to be specific, the 1.3E comes with rear drums while the 1.5S has disc brakes.
That said, we still hope for more improvement for the Yaris. Altering the CVT appears to be impossible but Toyota could carry out some modifications to enhance the throttle response as long as the fuel efficiency is kept.
Regarding steering, an addition of a telescopic function would be perfect. Lastly, noise isolation also needs ameliorating.
