Sure, the Civic and Yaris are in different price/car categories, but I tested a Yaris sedan before buying a Civic Coupe. A couple thousand dollars over the life of a 5-year loan is not a huge jump, and I took it. I was actually thinking about the Yaris Liftback with custom wheels and tires, but settled on the EX Civic and its stock alloys. I'm happy with my choice.
By the way, I used to have an automatic Echo with the Yaris motor. Great mileage, slow.
#14 of 17 Honda Civic vs Toyota Yaris

I recently bought 2007 Toyota Yaris sedan with an automatic transmission, and have drove my parents 2004 automatic Honda Civic EX before my purchase (I did not own the civic). The Yaris came with the power package. Besides not being in the same auto class, there are specific differences that should be pointed out.
Positives for the Civic:
1) The Civic has more standard features.
2) The Civic has way more power (Based on my driving experience and official numbers at www.edmunds.com)
3) The odometer is put in the center of the Yaris. For a young driver like myself it is not a problem, but for older drivers who are set in their ways it can be a problem.
Positives for the Yaris:
1)The Yaris feels more spacious(Leg and hip room) .
2)The Yaris cost $3,000 less than the Civic ($15,000 to $18,000)
3) Insurance for the Yaris cost less!(May vary with driving record).
The MPG are closely matched with the Yaris better in the city by 4 MPG and the Civic on the highway by 1 MPG. Even though I am very happy with my purchase, the Civic still wins because of horsepower (34 more horsepower) and more standard features offered.

I do know that the bug looking yaris will allow you to feel every bump in the road! Check out the other Yaris to see if it rides as rough.
#16 of 17 resale value of yaris vs accent

Look at the car ads, and you'll see that the yaris sells for more than a similarly equipped accent, even with the price of gas being so high now, also if you read the customer reviews, you will see there are a few accent owners reporting problems with their accents and none for yaris

The Yaris should cost more used than a similarly equipped Accent, since the Yaris cost more as a new car. For example, right now it's possible to get a new Accent hatch for under $10k OTD or a loaded Accent GLS sedan for around $12k.
I have seen quite a few problems discussed on the Yaris in the Yaris discussions here. And of course also problems with the Accent, in the Accent discussions.
