I would get the Yaris. Its way cheaper and you can get the same features... They are both reliable vehicles, but in this case you might wanna go with the Yaris, seems like a better investment

Honda is a higher end Toyota. Since a new Toyota is cheaper I recommend the Toyota, but it is really up to preference for you. Hondas and Toyotas get amazing gas mileage.I have a 98 Honda Civic 4 door with stick and I get a whopping 40 mpg. If I can get that, imagine what you can get from either of those cars. Just drive them nice and they will treat you nice that the pump.

I would go with Civic. I worked on Toyota cars, and they are pretty bad. If you want to go with Civic, go with least EX model with rear drum brake system.

How are people coming up with thwe stuff being said here? The Civic is in a higher class than the Yaris. The Yaris is on par with the Honda Fit while the Civic is on par with the Corolla. That's why the Yaris is cheaper. It's not in the same class. I would take the Civic in this comparison. Also, in response to the guy that called Honda a more upscale Toyota, it's the other way around. Not only that, consider that Hondas upscale company is Acura while Toyota's is Lexus. Now tell me, which of those two brands are serious competition to BMW, Audi, and Mercedes? Enough said.

Mazda3, it has more power. Yaris? don't even touch that car. Why would you want a used Civic if you can buy a brand new with that amount. Mazda3 has lower price than Civic with less than 19K you can buy a Mazda3 iTouring four door with moonroof and 6 CD changer.

The Toyota Yaris and Honda Civic are very good choices. Both the Toyota Yaris and the Honda Civic sedans are accorded Consumer Reports' highest predicted short-term reliability. Furthermore, the Toyota Yaris/Echo has perfect CR Used Car Reliability Verdicts dating back to model year 2000 (the year of introduction of the Toyota Echo, the predecessor of the Yaris with a less refined interior) and the Honda Civic sedan has perfect CR Reliability Verdicts for 8 of the past 10 model years. Also, the Toyota Yaris and the Honda Civic sedan are both on AutoOnInfo.net's Best of 2008 with a Best Engine.With regard to past model years, the Toyota Echo is on AutoOnInfo.net's lists of Best of 2001, Best of 2002, Best of 2003, and Best of 2004 (the last year for which AutoOnInfo.net has computed Reliability Percentranks). The Honda Civic is AutoOnInfo.net's list of Best of 1996, Best of 1998, Best of 1999, Best of 2000, Best of 2002, Best of 2003, and Best of 2004. With regard to auto emissions, the manual transmission versions of both the Toyota Yaris and the Honda Civic (DX, LX, EX, and EX-L) are on ACEEE's 2008 list of the greenest dozen, with the automatic transmission versions not far behind.With regard to estimated gas mileage, there appears to be a more significant difference. The EPA's estimated in-city fuel efficiency of the Toyota Yaris is 29 miles per gallon and its estimated on-highway fuel efficiency is 36 mpg for the manual transmission and 35 mpg for the automatic transmission. The EPA's estimated in-city fuel efficiency of the Honda Civic sedan (DX, LX, EX, and EX-L) is 26 mpg for the manual transmission and 25 mpg for the automatic transmission and its estimated on-highway fuel efficiency is 34 mpg for the manual transmission and 36 mpg for the automatic transmission.With regard to durability, Toyota products generally appear to hold a rather distinct edge. On AutoOnInfo.net's roster of 300,000+ mile vehicles, Toyota currently accounts for 44% of the vehicles with 300,000 or more miles and 63% of the vehicles with 400,000 or more miles and with an age of 15 or more years.While both the Toyota Yaris and Honda Civic are excellent vehicles, you may wish to consider the 4-door Honda Fit hatchback. It has been AutoOnInfo.net's top car pick for the past 2 years. The manual version of the Fit is also among ACEEE's 2008 greenest dozen and is closer to the Yaris in fuel efficiency. And hatchbacks are very, very handy vehicles to own.AutoOnInfo.net's review pages have photographs of the exterior and interior of each of the above vehicles.

I looked at the Yaris, the low sticker price and high mpgs are attractive....but as soon as you add basic options like power windows and a/c, the price increases.....For about the same amount of money, I bought a Scion XD (also made by Toyota)....($15350 with automatic trans)....its a four door hatchback, tons of room, and a long list of standard options....Like the previous poster wrote....Toyota/Scion/Lexus....It's the way to go!!!I also read somewhere that the XD has the same motor as the Toytoa Corolla.....98% of my driving is city (stop/go/stop/go) and I am getting approx 29 mpgs....I am sure this car would get approx 40 mpgs on the highway.....
