Fun Spare Flea – How the Toyota Yaris Hybrid captured my heart

And the two work so smoothly and seamlessly together that in town neither the CVT, which takes care of the power transmission, nor the naturally existing three-cylinder tubing bothers me. If you step on the gas when the traffic light turns green, the Yaris sprints off the line without a trace. The same applies if you roll up to a junction and then drive straight on without stopping. Not the slightest delay! Where other cars with automatic or double clutch still sort gears and the engine hangs in the turbo or response hole, the Yaris has long been around the corner, mercilessly playing its electric drive before the combustion engine joins the action.
