supermini with a starting price of around £23,000 doesn’t sound like particularly great value, although the Yaris entry price is pretty much on par with the Renault Clio E-Tech, and it does significantly undercut the Honda Jazz hybrid.

You will, however, save money at the petrol pump, because Toyota claims average fuel economy on the combined cycle of 68.9mpg. During our own testing, we saw an average of 65mpg, with the high economy figures unusually maintained though town centre driving. Full data for the upcoming 128bhp version hasn’t been released yet, but we have been told there’s a ‘modest upshift in CO2 emissions’, so we expect fuel economy numbers to take a hit.

CO2 emissions range from 92g/km to 116g/km, depending on your chosen trim level. The Honda Jazz isn’t quite as green, with CO2 emissions starting from 102g/km, while Renault’s Clio E-Tech supermini can’t quite match the Yaris either, with emissions of 98-99g/km.

Company car users will incur a 23 per cent BiK (Benefit-in-Kind) tax rate, compared to 25 per cent for the Jazz. That’s a significant saving over a regular petrol supermini, such as the Skoda Fabia, but there are some fully-electric alternatives in the form of the MG4, Peugeot E-208, and Vauxhall Corsa Electric that have even lower company car tax costs.

Insurance groups

No matter which trim level you opt for, the Yaris shouldn’t incur expensive insurance premiums. The entry-level Icon sits in group 13, while all other versions are in group 14. In comparison, the 107bhp Honda Jazz starts from group 19.

Depreciation

Residual values for the fourth-generation model over the standard three-year and 36,000-mile ownership period look solid. Our expert data suggests it should retain 50-52 per cent of its original value.

The Honda Jazz and Renault Clio hold on to a similar amount of money, but if you want a supermini that holds on to its value even better, go for the Audi A1 – in particular the 30 TFSI Sport, which maintains 61 per cent of its value.
