2016 Toyota Yaris Hatchback Specs & Features
When looking through the archive we noticed we’ve talked quite a bit about the 2016 Toyota Yaris Sedan, but have barely mentioned its hatchback sibling. So today, we thought we’d cover some of the 2016 Toyota Yaris Hatchback specs & features to show you what it’s all about for those of you who prefer hatchbacks to sedans. While the subcompact Yaris Sedan was completely redesigned for the 2016 model year, the Hatchback remained largely the same, but it’s still a great option in the subcompact hatchback segment.

“Canadian drivers love the easy to drive, easy to park and easy to own nature of the subcompact segment – and Toyota does, too. That’s why we created the Yaris Hatchback – a stylish car with spirited performance and features that redefine what a subcompact can be.”
– Larry Hutchinson, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc.
Differences between 2016 Yaris Sedan & Hatchback
The obvious difference between the Yaris Hatchback and all-new Yaris Sedan is in the name, hatchback vs. sedan. Aside from not receiving the same cosmetic updates and changes as the Sedan, the Hatchback offers more room for cargo without losing much passenger volume. It’s available in three different models – the 3-door CE, 5-door LE and sport-injected 5-door SE – each with its own differentiating style cues, and available with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
Available starting at $14,775, $16,195 and $17,945 respectively, each hatchback offers something for different types of drivers. The 3-door CE won’t be the best if you plan on often filling the back seat with people, but it does have a 4-speaker audio system with 6.1” display screen, Multi Information Display and 15” wheels. The LE adds things like air conditioning, cruise control and keyless entry to the mix among other things, and the SE adds a host of enhancements and upgrades from sporty front seats and fabrics to an additional two speakers, an intermittent rear wiper, rear spoiler, 16” wheels and much more.
