Interesting. Yaris was derived from two words. The first part is from the German expression yes, “ja” and the second part from the Greek goddess, Charis (representing beauty and elegance). I’m not quite convinced the Yaris represents anything near beauty and elegance, but it definitely represents the new generation of economy vehicles with excellent fuel economy numbers and respectable quality. Read my review of the new Yaris or get a woman’s perspective by reading Natasha’s review.
