Oh What a Feeling!
I’m not sure what happened to this Toyota slogan, but I have to bring it back in honor of the 2017 Toyota Yaris iA. As a Toyota owner- I love my Camry- I am a big fan of the automaker. It is the only car type of which I actually paid off the loan and had a clear title. Being a Toyota enthusiast, when I received the e-mail to participate in their Toyota Green Initiative in honor of the SWAC Championship weekend in Houston, I was ecstatic. My excitement only increased once I learned that I would be testing out the latest Yaris iA.
This subcompact car, that gets 32 city miles and 40 highway miles to the gallon, did not disappoint. I thought my Camry was good on gas- and it is for a full-sized vehicle- but I was in heaven with the mini, magical machine that is the Toyota Yaris. I have driven over 200 miles, and I have yet to use half of the full tank of gas that I received. The only wrinkle was figuring out that the car starts with a push of the button. That was something new for this 2009 Camry driver. Glad that I figured it out before taking apart the fob to see if the key was hidden inside of it. Nonetheless, this was nothing that a quick read through the owner’s manual did not solve.
I still have a few more days to go places, but this wonder on wheels already has my vote. If you are in the market for a subcompact vehicle, I highly recommend it.
