In this episode, we test out the fuel economy in the all new 2016 Toyota Yaris Sedan. Drawing platform similarities from the Mazda 2 (not sold in Canada), the Yaris offers a peppy driving experience with impressive fuel economy numbers.
Our tester was equipped with a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder engine. Our tests yielded 262km on a half tank of gas and gave a decent average fuel economy of 6.4L/100km.
After using up a half tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $24.72 at a fuel cost of $1.02/liter. At that rate, expect to spend around $50 for a full tank of gas.
