The 2009 Toyota Yaris Liftback model rides on a very short, 96.9-inch wheelbase and is one of the shortest new vehicles, at about 150 inches long n US market. It's ideal as a commuter that can fit into the tightest parking spots, yet handle longer trips when the need arises. The sedan is nearly two feet longer and has three more inches of wheelbase length, translating to more backseat space and better stability on the highway. For both versions, while the Yaris maneuvers well, its suspension is somewhat soft.
The Yaris is one of the worst-performing cars in the federal government's safety tests in US, with only three stars for side-impact safety, and the IIHS rates the Yaris as "marginal" for rear impact. Major safety features such as anti-lock brakes and side impact airbags are now standard, but electronic stability control is not offered on the 2009 Toyota Yaris.
