2009 Toyota Yaris Real Gas Mileage: Pros

2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4

2010 4dr Sedan 106-horsepower 1.5L I4
5-speed manual FWD
I am an ultra light foot driver and can consistently get 42-46 mpg in the spring or fall when I can have the A/C off. During the summer I can get about 41-42 mpg and because of our below zero winters I get into the upper 30s for mpg. Overall year round my average mpg is 41.7. The key seems to be the aerodynamics of the 4 door sedan and the manual transmission. Not sure why this car is not rated at better mpg. Could be it is driver style sensitive in that a lead foot driver can get terrible gas mileage and a light foot driver can get easily into the 40s for mpg. I have driven this car 52000 miles to this date April 2013. I use this car to commute to work which includes rush hour traffic. I have also used this car to go cross country from the midwest to Florida. Total MPG so far 41.68. see full Toyota Yaris review

Given its size, should have a better rating. During my test drives (and several rentals), consistently performed worse than EPA estimates, even using a light foot. see full Toyota Yaris review
