Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Yaris Sedan offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Corolla with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Yaris Sedan and the Toyota Corolla in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Yaris Sedan as you will with the Toyota Corolla, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Yaris Sedan is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Corolla. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Yaris Sedan and the Toyota Corolla have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Yaris Sedan is much slimmer than the Toyota Corolla, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Yaris Sedan, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Corolla.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Toyota Yaris Sedan doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota Corolla.

Handling
The Toyota Yaris Sedan has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Toyota Corolla, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Yaris Sedan is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Corolla. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Yaris Sedan and the Toyota Corolla. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Toyota Yaris Sedan as you will in the Toyota Corolla.

Warranty
The Toyota Yaris Sedan comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Corolla.
