Is My Yaris A Monster?

I can't believe it. I have a Yaris 1.3 M-MT (unleaded fuel) and I use it in the (very very crowded) traffic of my city and despite of this it makes 16-16,50 km/l.
Last summer when I went at work and there vas a very light traffic it made 17,70 km/l.
And it doesn't matter the driving style, because I make more than 16 km/l even if I don't pay attention to have an economic driving style.

I'm very happy of it, consider that it isn't a diesel engine.

For us metric impaired people that is ~ 37-40 mpg (US). The USDM version w/ the 1.5L gets 29/36 according to the EPA.

I dunno, if he has a current gen Yaris, its looks aren't far off from that. Personally I think it looks like a catfish w/ bad gas, but what do I know.

6.06L/ 100km that's about on par with what the canadian gov says you should get.  Smile and too true about the diesels:P averaging 3.7L / 100km here

thanks for that conversion, and I dont see how you could expect that much more. How much do you drive and what are the fuel prices in Italy? Im guessing probably along the same lines as the rest of Europe.

I will be getting a new car probably within 5 years (a long time, I know), but I would settle for a Yaris, or a Rio, or something similar. I won't need a big car in a few years, as two of the kids will be in college or beyond, and I want fuel economy. I will load them up as much as I can, of course.

Of course, if our finances get better, I'd also look at a Civic or even a Cooper.

you cant go wrong with the yaris. You wont have to invest in a Hybrid to see the payoffs of that investment take place in the future or if you drive an exorbitant amount. That is a car I would buy if I was in the market for a car, great gas mileage and good enough for me.

Don't get a cooper. Someone I work with was pretty sure his was a monster- and not in a good way. It has all the British car gremlins and you get to pay a BMW dealer to work on it.

Take the civic.

My mom's has been just about trouble-free for 2+ years...it only sees the shop for preventive mx, a power window squeak fix, and a dead battery. Build quality seems to be very good and, according to other people I know with MINI's, pretty reliable. Maybe your friend has a lemon...either way, I don't hear lots of gripes about it.

Here unleaded 95 costs 1,32 €/l which means 4,996 €/gallon which means 7,184 dollars/gallon.
