How fuel efficient is the Toyota Yaris?

The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated heart of the 2019 Toyota Yaris is a familiar unit. The 2NR-FE engine is one that powers the Toyota Vios and has been in use since UMW Toyota gave the sedan an update in 2016. Back then, UMW claims that the new engine was an effort for better fuel efficiency, and the Yaris definitely proves itself to be a fuel sipping car. Mated to a CVT with seven sequential gears, the Yaris’ engine produces 107 PS and 140 Nm, 13 PS less than Honda Jazz.

On paper, the Toyota Vios has got it all. 7 airbags, 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor, brilliant driving experience, a supremely quiet cabin (69 dB at 110 km/h based on our tests) and more in a very attractive price starting from RM 77,200 to RM 87,300 for the range topper.But there is one deal breaker that has us halting and reaching for the Toyota Yaris brochure (which, mind you, is very similar to the Vios’) instead, and that is the very annoying blind-spot monitor beep.Yes, both the V
