The Yaris was redesigned for 2012. There is more contouring to the back seat, which often makes it harder to fit car seats side by side or 3-across than in a flat back seat like the 2009-2011 had.
To remove 2D & 2P head restraints, you must fold the vehicle seat forward in order for the head restraints to clear the roof.
The shoulder belt for 2C continues to come from the roof (yes this is safe) – see here for how to use, connect and disconnect this shoulder belt.
2009 was the first year the Yaris was available as a 5-door (previously the only hatchback was a 3-door). The head restraints for all 3 seats are adjustable and very tall and likely removable.
The seat belt buckles for all 3 seats are on a fairly long piece of seat belt webbing – you may find the need to twist the buckle stalk (up to 3 full revolutions) to shorten it in order to get some car seats installed tightly – as shown here.
The shoulder belt for 2C comes from the roof (yes this is safe) – see here for how to use, connect and disconnect this shoulder belt.
For a small car, the back seat is wider than would be expected.
The Yaris was first introduced in 2007 as a sedan or 3-door hatchback. Click here for more info on the Yaris sedan.
Since the 3-door hatchback is very tiny, we will not profile it here as it is not ideal for children.
