Toyota Yaris: Driving Tips / Winter Driving

Toyota Yaris XP210 (2020-2022) Owner's Manual / Before Driving / Driving Tips / Winter Driving

Carry emergency gear, including tire chains, window scraper, flares, a small shovel, jumper cables, and a small bag of sand or salt.

Ask your Toyota dealer to check the following:

  • Have the proper ratio of antifreeze in the radiator. Refer to Engine Coolant.
  • Inspect the battery and its cables. Cold reduces battery capacity.
  • Use an engine oil appropriate for the lowest ambient temperatures that the vehicle will be driven in.
  • Inspect the ignition system for damage and loose connections.
  • Use washer fluid made with antifreeze-but do not use engine coolant antifreeze for washer fluid.


  • Do not use the parking brake in freezing weather as it may freeze. Instead, shift to 1 or R with a manual transaxle and to P with an automatic transaxle. Block the rear wheels.
  • Remove snow before driving. Snow left on the windshield is dangerous as it could obstruct vision.
  • Do not apply excessive force to a window scraper when removing ice or frozen snow on the mirror glass and windshield.
  • Never use warm or hot water for removing snow or ice from windows and mirrors as it could result in the glass cracking.
  • Drive slowly. Braking performance can be adversely affected if snow or ice adheres to the brake components. If this situation occurs, drive the vehicle slowly, releasing the accelerator pedal and lightly applying the brakes several times until the brake performance returns to normal.

Rocking the Vehicle

If you must rock the vehicle to free it from snow, sand or mud, depress the accelerator slightly and slowly move the shift lever from 1 (D) to R position...

Snow Tires

Use snow tires on all four wheels Do not go faster than 75 mph (120 km/h) while driving with snow tires. Inflate snow tires 30 kPa (0.3 kgf/cm2, 4.3 psi) more than recommended on the tire pressure label (driver’s door frame), but never more than the maximum cold-tire pressure shown on the tires...
