2019 marks a very special year for Toyota, as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the very well known and much loved Toyota Yaris.
Yaris has confidently become Toyota's best selling model in Europe and over two decades has become a staple on roads worldwide. One thing that has to be admired about Yaris is it's versatility, whether you're a family of four or a new driver, Yaris offers something for you.
In celebration of reaching such a remarkable milestone, Toyota revealed at the Paris Motor Show back in October 2018 that they were releasing a new Y20 model to the existing 2019 Yaris range. The Y20 'Anniversary Edition' is a rare and exquisite beauty, with stunning flame gold paintwork similar to that used by the first Yaris back in 1998 to the contemporary bi-tone dark grey roof. The striking interior is one of many reasons to love this car plus the fact that there are only 100 of these cars are available for purchase in the UK, bundle this together and you know you're part of an elite club if you choose this unmistakable model.
Rest assured you may be seeing one of the Yaris Y20 'Anniversary Edition' models driving around our region's roads sooner than you think...
We know here in the North East we are ahead of the curve when it comes to trend setting and of-course RMB Toyota customers know style when they see it, so it was no surprise that as soon as these beautiful Y20 'Anniversary Edition' Yaris' hit our showrooms that someone would snap one up.
Mrs Colman was the first customer here at RMB Toyota to purchase a brand new Yaris Y20 'Anniversary Edition' in the original flame gold finish earlier this month. Alison was not only the first customer to purchase one of these limited edition cars from our Teesside showroom, she was one of the first in the UK, now that really is trend setting!
Paul at RMB Toyota Teesside was happy to hand over the keys and the bubbly to this beautiful limited edition car, but the celebrations don't stop there! To make this a celebration to remember, Toyota UK are offering customers who purchase a flame gold 'Anniversary Edition' Y20 a one-night weekend hotel stay for two people. Not only do you get to drive away in a beautiful brand new car, you get to indulge with a relaxing UK break, what's not to love!
With hundreds of hotels to choose from across the UK, this really is the icing on the cake and we can't wait to find out where Mrs Colman chooses!
From exterior to interior, every aspect of the limited edition Y20 is styled to perfection. The exterior makes use of dark grey styling to make the sought after Y20 stand out amongst it's competitors. Y20 includes 16-inch grey and machined-face ten-spoke alloy wheels, dark grey side mouldings, front grille, door mirror casings and fog light surrounds (with chrome detailing). The Y20 also sports a shark fin antenna, colour-matched to the roof, dark-tinted rear privacy glass and special Y20 badging on the C-pillars.
The interior also taps into the ultra stylish dark grey theme, the centre console, steering wheel inserts and new chequer-pattern fabric upholstery all take design influence from this theme. Satin chrome air vents, audio speaker and meter surrounds and gear knob trim, black carpet mats with silver edging and Y20 badging on the instrument panel and front seatbacks further enhance the quality feel of the interior.
It's safe to say the Yaris Y20 'Anniversary Edition' is one stylish number and is bursting with that old fashioned Yaris charm bundled together with a 21st century approach. Whether you're keen to know more about the limited edition Yaris Y20 or about the various other Yaris models available, the Y20 is available to test drive at each of our RMB Toyota showrooms; Teesside, Darlington and Northallerton.
