2015 Toyota Yaris interiors.
2015 Toyota Yaris does not disappoint you when it comes to interiors, the well built whiplash proof seats are comfortable and large enough. There are the standard Bluetooth and Handsfree phone features that comes with the in-car entertainment (ICE) installed as standard. The 6 speaker system delivers a good music for your favorite tracks. You can add a lot of accessories and features with this car at the time of order or later on. The tilt steering wheel and a key-less entry make up for reduced driver headache.[ad code=5]
The interior trim quality is decent and though does not look lavish, is quite durable. Plastics and fabric used is of decent quality if not fabulous. There is enough legroom for rear passengers and you would not feel stuck even if you are a big person. Overall a well balanced hatchback.
