2017 Toyota Yaris iA _ Badge-engineering is a very familiar tactic in the automotive industry where manufacturers share patterns between them. The 2017 Toyota Yaris iA is the perfect example. Originally released as Scion, instead of developing a car from scratch, Toyota turned to Mazda for the iA. The car is basically the same under the Mazda 2 as it shares its engine, transmission, racing gear and floor-flat with. However, the exterior design is new while the interior has been updated slightly. This allowed them to offer a really cheap car with plenty of equipment for the price.

The infotainment of the 2017 Toyota Yaris iA also inherited from Mazda, uses an indirect control pod on the console. A jog dial and buttons let me quickly learn the capabilities of the system, which did not include navigation. Rather than a factory option, navigation is provided by a dealer. The Yaris iA left me with a hands-free Bluetooth and stereo phone system. Audio sources seem complete, ranging from AM radio to the integration of Aha, Pandora and Stitcher applications. For music, I tend to either stream audio through the Bluetooth connection, or plug my iPhone into one of the two USB ports of the car.

Toyota makes life easier for buyers by offering the 2017 Toyota Yaris iA with a single engine: a high-compression 1.5-liter four-cylinder that makes 106 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 103 lb.-ft. Torque at 4,000 rpm. A six-speed manual transmission is standard and a six-speed automatic with a sport mode can be ordered at an additional cost. The iA returns 33 mpg in the city and 42 mpg on the highway when ordered with the six-speed automatic transmission. By selecting the six-speed manual, the mileage decreases to 31 and 41.
