TOYOTA YARIS

Subcompact, under $17,000

Toyota Yaris

With the subcompact class seeing an influx of newly designed vehicles, this newly created segment of Subcompact, under $17,000 saw a strong battle between the new Toyota Yaris and the new Honda Fit. Although the Honda did best based upon higher annual mileage, the Yaris was the winner when calculating cost of ownership based upon low or average annual mileage, making it a first time winner of Vincentric’s Best Value in America award.
