Toyota's smallest US car offering is also its least expensive and replaces the Echo model. The diminutive Yaris was designed for the European market but thanks to high gas prices and a low purchase price, it's doing well in the US. The Yaris subcompact is available in liftback and sedan body styles and manages to offer a spacious and efficient cabin for its size. Toyota's reputation for reliable and well-thought out vehicles makes this a great choice for anyone looking for a budget-priced, small, economical car with good styling and decent power. City dwellers in particular will appreciate its small size and ease of parking.
