The Toyota Yaris is an economy king. It has always been known for compact mobility and overall affordability, but since its release in 1999, it has evolved into something far more powerful than we could have ever possibly imagined. Of course, we are speaking of the 2017 Toyota Yaris iA sedan.

Engine Performance

We have a confession to make. The Yaris iA is not more powerful than the standard Yaris, but it does have features that make the power more easily accessible. Overall, the difference between the 2017 Toyota Yaris and the Yaris iA has to do with performance and body style. The Yaris iA is a sedan, not a hatchback. It also comes with a sport transmission and sport driving mode, both of which are not offered for the standard Yaris. The Sport driving mode adjusts the tuning of the Yaris iA to become more responsive and aggressive, which complements the 6-speed transmission, only available for the Yaris iA.

Fuel Efficiency

Because of the sleek sedan design of the 2017 Yaris iA, it is able to maintain higher fuel-efficiency numbers. The standard Yaris gets 30 miles per gallon in the city and 36 on the highway. Staying above 30 miles per gallon is impressive, but the Yaris iA wins this round too with 32 miles per gallon in the city and 40 on the highway.

Maximum Cargo Capacity

Last but not least is cargo capacity. The change between sedan and hatchback gives the traditional Yaris an interior space advantage of 1.81 ft³. Specifically, the Toyota Yaris has a maximum cargo volume of 15.3 ft³ and the Yaris iA has a maximum capicity of 13.49 ft³.
