CHICAGO, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A growing number of residents in the Chicago area continue to reap the benefits of cars in the subcompact segment such as the 2014 Toyota Prius, as the small size of the vehicles allow them to get some of the highest fuel economy ratings on the market. The convenient, compact size also allow costs to be low, making the vehicles in the subcompact segment some of the most affordable cars available. That's especially true for the Toyota Yaris, which is currently available at Toyota of River Oaks in Calumet City.

The 2014 Toyota Yaris is available in a number of different configurations, each of which offer a different set of features and capabilities. The base model of the Yaris is a three-door model which, like the other two models, utilizes a hatchback design, allowing the subcompact car to be more aerodynamic and to maximize storage capacity. Despite being classified as a subcompact car, the interior space of the Toyota Yaris is surprisingly spacious.

One of the most beneficial aspects of the Toyota Yaris is its fuel economy. Certain models of the Yaris, including the higher-end five-door model, are capable of traveling up to 37 mpg on the highway, making them extremely practical for consumers who spend much of their time behind the wheel. The superior efficiency ratings come from the 1.5-liter engine which comes standard across all trims of the 2014 Toyota Yaris, ensuring that each model is capable of performing efficiently.

One of the downsides of subcompact cars is that their small size causes them to perform poorly in collisions, but that is not the case in the 2014 Toyota Yaris, which comes equipped with a variety of safety systems that help to ensure passengers are safe at all times. Among the standard safety features are nine cabin-filling airbags and systems which help to avoid accidents completely, helping to keep the airbags from ever having to deploy.
