What Our Members Are Saying about the Seat Room and Comfort of the 2008 Toyota Yaris

2008 Toyota Yaris Seat Room and Comfort: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I can adjust the seat back so I can reach all controls with just arm movement. I can raise the seat so my thighs are fully supported right out to my knees. see full Toyota Yaris review

For the size of car, there is a lot of front seat room see full Toyota Yaris review

2007 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

There's lots of space around you in the front seats, moreso than other cars I have owned. Lots of modern cars have a big, tall center console that extends back to the rear seats and up to your elbow. The Yaris is not like this at all. Only the gear stick separates the driver and passenger. see full Toyota Yaris review

The seats are soft but supportive, and hug the driver firmly in place. The result is a real sense of connection with the car. see full Toyota Yaris review

Ha ha ha ha! Perhaps a small dog would be comfortable back there. The only good thing about the back seat is that I've read it is not too hard to remove it entirely! see full Toyota Yaris review

incofortable even for only two adults. The passanger in the center will be very inconfortable when tree passengers are in rear seat. see full Toyota Yaris review

Small in the back, but the seats can adjust, recline and fold down for cargo. see full Toyota Yaris review
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

The back seats are extremely cramped when slid forward. They must be slid forward when a non-tiny amount of cargo needs to be put in the back. see full Toyota Yaris review

Very narrow. see full Toyota Yaris review

What Our Members Are Saying about the Powertrain of the 2008 Toyota Yaris

2008 Toyota Yaris Powertrain: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2009 4dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
The engine felt labored and groaned up every freeway on ramp. Acceleration was pathetic and almost dangerously slow. see full Toyota Yaris review
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Noisy engine with no power. Cannot merge onto freeway safely. Notchy shifter. Non-communicative steering. A truly boring, underpowered econo-box. see full Toyota Yaris review
2008 2dr Hatch 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
The Yaris is a little bit too slow for me. If it had 20 more HP I think it would be plenty quick enough for the size of vehicle it is. Also, it should have a 5 AT, not a 4 AT. This would help make the car smoother, more responsive and improve fuel economy see full Toyota Yaris review
