The sharper, bolder and sportier Yaris is here. It offers plenty of fun while driving, and you’ll reap the rewards of choosing such a fuel-efficient supermini.
Expect punchier looks with this new model. Featuring chisels across the body, from the nose to the sides and tail, it is futuristic in style and exceptionally sporting with a vast front grille. Select the Design trim to get a stylish honeycomb grille, and choose the Bi-tone for LED daytime running lights in a striking curved line. The simple interior layout puts you firmly in the driver’s seats with minimal controls for a clean finish. A sculpted dashboard design creates a soft, calm feel, so you can retreat from the hectic nature of the city.
There are six trim levels to choose from with the new Yaris: Active, Icon, Icon Tech, Design, Excel and Bi-tone. Step up from the entry-level to get a screen in the centre of the dashboard boasting a reversing camera to enjoy much simpler parking. The Icon Tech makes parking even easier with sensors, while the Design brings a sportier finish with privacy glass and a rear spoiler. For comfort, choose the Excel with automatic air conditioning, or select the Bi-tone for extra style with multiple paints for your car.
Every Yaris apart from the Active boasts a seven-inch screen with Toyota Touch 2 Multimedia. This system allows you to play music and make calls using your phone. It’s an intuitive touchscreen with drag and flick functions for easy use while driving. Supportive seats provide the comfort you require for longer journeys.
Choose from three petrol engines and one hybrid. Ranging from 1.0 to 1.5 litres, you can choose the one that best suits your driving style, with the larger offering a stronger performance on longer drives along the motorway. The hybrid works with an electric motor and a 1.5-litre petrol unit to return up to 85mpg and enjoy CO2 emissions as low as 75g/km.
As standard, the Yaris boasts Toyota Safety Sense. This package makes every drive much safer with a pre-collision system to prevent accidents in town and Lane Departure Alert to support your drive along the motorway. Road Sign Assist tells you the correct speed so you don’t break the limit and Automatic High Beam adjusts the headlights to prevent you blinding others on the road.
