Background history on the Toyota Yaris
Toyota launched The Yaris back in 1999. It was made to replace these older models, the Starlet and Tercel. The “Yaris” name is derived from “Charis”, the singular form of Charites, the Greek goddesses of charm and beauty. There are four generations of Toyota Yaris. Let have a look at all four generations and choose our favourite. If you are looking for best used car under $5000, then it is definitely one of the contenders.
First generation (XP10; 1999–2005)
The first generation Toyota Yaris models were marketed between 1999 and 2005 under the “Yaris” and “Echo” names.
Second generation (XP90; 2005–2013)
The second generation Yaris models got new styling and improved on the already great reliability. In Australia for example both the hatchback and sedan body styles were available, however the hatchback became the best seller.
