Does the Toyota Yaris come in manual transmission?

Our son is moving to New York City for school, and we’re looking for a stick-shift car (he’s always driven a manual). We want something that’s dependable enough to get him around town and back home to Poughkeepsie for the holidays. Does the Toyota Yaris come in manual transmission?

The Toyota Yaris does come with an option for a 6-speed manual transmission, but Toyota discontinued production of the Yaris at the end of the 2020 model year.
Still, if your son loves driving a stick-shift, and you can find a manual Yaris in good condition, this will be a fun car to drive (though we here at Jerry will give him a stern talking-to if he even thinks about joyriding).
Along with having a light and athletic body, the Yaris has plenty more that makes it a fun ride (don’t tell your son that—tell him it’s a boring little car that gets him from A to B, nothing more). Its 1.5 L 106 horsepower engine is quite spritely, with nimble handling and responsive steering feedback.
In spite of its size, the Yaris is stable and stress-free while driving on the highway, though it has a bit of body roll on tight turns (definitely warn him about this).
The one big drawback—the noise. The Yaris is not a quiet ride, and road and wind noise is a common complaint from owners. The noise likely stems from its lightweight body, but that’s a big reason why the Yaris is so fuel efficient, sporting a combined 35 miles per gallon.
In addition to finding a safe ride for your son, you can get added peace of mind by protecting his manual Yaris with a robust car insurance policy by using Jerry! The average Jerry user saves more than $800 per year on car insurance!
