In some cases, if you walk out and leave your contact details, the salesman may call back a few days later with a better price or may add in a few more freebies :)

I've heard that Yaris may sometimes be hard to haggle with.

Best way to haggle is to shop around, and actively voice that you are doing so. Helps to have a firm budget too, but the job of the salesman is to weasel you out of every last dollar of your budget, so it doesn't always work. However, the threat of taking your business elsewhere is always a good enticement to get them to lower their offer or throw in some tasty extras.

Oh, and remember that the first place you go, their "final price" will never be their final price. Even if it looks like a great deal immediately, shop around and come back later in the day (or at least say that you shopped around whereas you just had lunch at the pub).

When my parents bought their Camry, they went to one dealership first and haggled down to their "final price". They then went to another dealership in town, got the same deal for a couple of grand less, then rang up the first dealership to tell them that they had settled, only to be told by the first one "we can match that". My parents told them to shove it, as they had already given their "final price" and if that wasn't really their final price, then they aren't the kind of honest dealership that my parents wanted to buy a car from.
