I want to trade in my suv for a more econimical car. I'm looking at the Yaris due to its gas milage. My question is would it fit 3 kids in the back.. with 1 car seat and 2 booster seats???

The coupe version, no, the sedan, maybe. These cars arent very big in person and for a car seat and 2 booster seats in the back, you can determine for yourself if it will fit from my source.

No. They look like eggs on wheels and are probably not all that safe. If you still would like an SUV, you could get the Ford Escape Hybrid which gets 31-36 mpg. It is a heck of a lot safer, more spacious, better looking, and is and has room up to 5.

Yes, you should get a Toyota Yaris. It's a good quality car.

the yaris is to small, but if you still want a hybrid, look into the toyota highlander hybrid and the ford escape hybrid.

The yaris is a somewhat small but it does have a decent amount of room in the back seat of the 4 door model. I can't say for sure, but I think you might be able to fit the seats in the back. If you go to the dealership they should be able to tell you.

The Euro version of the Yaris is rated very highly. The US version appears to not quite be up to Toyota standards. It's good, but not as good as Toyota's reputation.































If you are looking for something economical, look at the three Scion models. They are designed exactly for a buyer like you, and are made by Toyota. They come very, very loaded for being so cheap, as well.































Otherwise, I would go for the low-end Corolla model instead.

I drive a 4 door yaris & no, not to fit 3 kids. The car does have enough room on some occasions but not for 3 kids and child seats. The kids will keep growing and it will get crowded. The car is also very light so when it is windy, it tends to move a lot. you have to have a good grip on the steering wheel. I live around the palm springs area & the freeway is always windy. I hate driving it on the free way. When there is a heavy load in the car, you can feel it while you are driving. You will feel a difference when you are the only one driving it & when there is more than 3 people in it. I am single with no kids so when I am on the highway driving by myself, i enjoy it. Its a small good car for me & it doesn't let me speed lol. But for you & your kids, try the camry or the highlander

I would say no. I have three kids myself and it's a tight fit in my pickup.
