4. The Result
Of course in this instance the tradeoff for not having gobs of horsepower is stellar fuel economy, which the Yaris Hybrid ought to deliver. On the European test cycle it’s slated to consume between 3.1 and 3.4 liters of gasoline per 100 kilometers in city driving. Under “extra urban” conditions its consumption increases to anywhere from 3.5 to 3.7 liters per 100 clicks. In real numbers its combined score works out to anywhere from 64 to 67 miles per U.S. gallon (again, that’s from Euro testing). These figures aren’t too shabby, but acceleration is pretty poor. The zero to 100 km/h (62 MPH) jaunt runs the clock out at 11.8 seconds.
