2006 Yaris gets fold away seats

Toyota’s second generation Yaris will include the ‘Easy Flat’ seat system, a first in its class.

The new Yaris is available in three and five-door body styles with a choice of three engines - the 68bhp 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol, 1.3-litre VVT-I and a 1.4-litre D-4D.

The new model has a five-star Euro NCAP rating for occupant protection.

Three grades are on offer: T2, T3 and T Spirit. T2 models come with remote central locking, driver and passenger front airbags, electrically adjustable door mirrors, CD player, electric front windows, rear seats that individually slide, recline and fold down with the ‘Easy Flat’ system and electric power steering.

Additional features on T3 versions include front side, curtain shield and driver’s knee airbags, leather-trimmed steering wheel with auxiliary audio controls, air conditioning and an upgraded sound system that can play MP3 files stored on disc.

Top-of-the-range T Spirit grade introduces a keyless entry system, climate control air conditioning, front fog lamps and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Prices for the new Yaris range start at £8,995 for the entry level 1.0-litre VVT-i T2 three-door model and rise to £13,295 for the 1.4 D-4D 90 T Spirit five-door with M/M.


Four accessory packs have also been designed for the new Yaris, for pre-delivery fitment.

The protection pack features scuff plates, mud flaps, side and corner mouldings, a boot protector and carpet mats. The sport pack includes a chrome exhaust finisher, roof spoiler and 15-inch alloy wheels.

Owners can also specify a leather pack, for a high-quality full leather interior, and turn-by-turn satellite navigation.

Leather interior: £1,195
