Toyota Yaris Boasts Some Serious Fuel Efficiency Numbers

2018 Toyota Yaris Fuel Economy Ratings

Subcompact cars have been gaining a great deal of popularity, as their smaller size allows them to stretch a gallon of fuel much further than a larger sedan or SUV. In the Toyota lineup, the Yaris is one of the smallest vehicles, and it has some pretty impressive fuel economy ratings. To give you an idea of exactly what it is capable of, let’s take a closer look at the efficiency numbers of the latest 2018 Toyota Yaris.

2018-Toyota-Yaris-Exterior-DesignGiven the size of the Yaris, it doesn’t need an overly-large engine. Under the hood, it offers just a single 1.5-liter, four-cylinder engine. The engine is able to produce as much as 106 horsepower and 103 pound-feet of torque, which is more than enough to put some pep in the step of the subcompact Toyota Yaris.

Of course the real benefit of the smaller engine size is the fuel economy. When firing on all four cylinders, the Yaris manages to get as much as 30 miles to the gallon in the city, and 36 miles to the gallon on the highway. With the 11.1-gallon fuel tank, it gives the Yaris a highway driving range of almost 400 miles.

It is important to keep in mind that the ratings listed above are achieved when the engine is paired to the five-speed automatic transmission. There is a second gearbox available—a four-speed automatic—and when the four-speed is equipped, there is a slight drop in the fuel economy. However, it’s only a drop of one mile-per-gallon in the highway cycle. So at 30/35 city/highway, the ratings are still quite impressive.
