  1. I've just had a look on Auto Trader and there are a few previous model Yaris's registered in 2021 - including one old style "new" 21 reg, despite the fact the newest model has been on sale for a year. This always happens with the changeover of models, with the leftover old stock being sold off at cheaper prices, which is what I imagine the example in question is. It may indeed have sat around for a while unregistered, having been built a year or two ago!
  2. Does it handle okay on the motorway?
  3. Please do report back! As a prospective future new Yaris hybrid owner who occasionally has to do long motorway journeys I'm always interested to see how people get on with motorway driving and fuel economy.
  4. That's good for such a relatively small fuel tank (36L?).
  5. What fuel range mileage on the display do people get in their Yaris Hybrids with a full tank of petrol? Both the new and older model. I know it varies from driving style but I'm just interested to know what people get.
  6. I've rarely been able to sit behind the driver in pretty much any car I've ever been in - even bigger cars! As I currently own a Peugeot 208 I'm used to having tightish rear seating and a relatively small boot - though big enough for what I need. I've also never had a car with adjustable lumbar support so that's not something I'd miss. The new Yaris appears to tick just about every box for what I need - other than the current rather high price perhaps!
  7. As someone researching my future next newish car the newest Yaris does get some of the best reviews out there - I've read of very few negatives. I'm pleased to see used/ex demonstrator models with a few thousand miles are now coming onto the market at lower prices, so maybe within a year or so I'll finally be able to acquire one!
  8. The new Yaris gets pretty much universal praise from journalists and reviewers. I really want one due to the exceptional fuel economy and comfortable drive, but due to the price will have to wait for a few more used examples to come on to the market!
  9. Just to be pedantic, the newest Suzuki Swift hybrid now appears to be available as an automatic. I was looking at new Swifts on Auto Trader the other day and noticed they now do an auto hybrid.
  10. I've seen two new Yaris's on the road in the last week - a (filthy) dark red one overtook me on the motorway and a white one went past the house.
  11. I think driving towards the wind also reduces fuel consumption. I recently drove my Peugeot 208 on a long journey of mainly motorway miles - heading north, the same way as the wind direction, I achieved 60mpg on average for the 3hr journey (a record for me in this car), but on the return journey south got 54.2mpg. On that journey I was heading into the wind and could feel the car being shaken slightly by it at times.
  12. Sorry to bump a thread to bring up a post from a few years ago. The NEWEST Clio now only has a 42 litre fuel tank! I think my 2001 Clio had a 50 litre tank, as does my current petrol Peugeot 208, which on a full tank can achieve towards 500 miles on long journeys of around 55-60mpg. When looking for a new car my top priority is fuel economy as well as good miles covered on one tank of fuel - which the Peugeot 208 ticks all the right boxes in that regard - but newer cars' fuel tanks are shrinking, meaning the miles-per-tank isn't increasing much (despite better economy) or in some cases are get
  13. Did I read somewhere that EV mode in this new model stays on until around 70mph, as opposed to more like 40 or something in the previous model?
  14. What sort of MPG do you get in the (previous model) 1.5 Yaris Hybrid on the motorway?
  15. Thanks for the info. Yes, the standard automatic does seem less common than the hybrid when I've been looking at them for sale. Approximately how many miles do you get from a full tank of petrol to (not quite) empty, or what does the range mileage display generally say when full? I know this will vary depending on current driving style. Sounds good. I guess it's fairly similar to the 1.5 CVT.
