3

The facelifted Toyota Yaris will be priced between £10,995 for the three-door and £17,695 for the five-door when it goes on sale in August.

The entry level Yaris is priced at £1,000 more expensive than the UK's best selling car and main rival, the Ford Fiesta which starts at £9,995.

Toyota says it has introduced a new UK grade structure to broaden the appeal of the Yaris to a more diverse customer base.

The new line-up presents the established Active and Icon grades, joined by new Sport and Excel trims. Yaris Hybrid can be specified in Icon and Excel versions.

Each grade has its own character, differentiated by details such as the interior trim and materials and treatment of various interior and exterior elements, including the lower grille, wheels, seats, centre console and instrument panel.

Ten exterior colours are available, including new Island Blue metallic and, Avantgarde Bronze for hybrid models.

The second tier trim Icon features leather-trimmed steering wheel, air conditioning and the latest Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system fitted as standard. Climate control air conditioning is standard for all Hybrid models and for Yaris Excel.

Toyota Touch 2 is an updated version of Toyota’s touchscreen multimedia system with a higher resolution seven-inch display. The package includes Bluetooth for hands-free phone calls, sending and receipt of text messages and audio streaming; a rear-view camera; vehicle information, including trip data, climate control profile; and management of settings for door locking and lighting.

It comes with DAB digital radio as standard, with an FM link that automatically switches the system to FM reception when there is no DAB signal. Toyota Touch 2 is also MirrorLink-ready, allowing users to connect compatible smartphones and operate them using the touchscreen.

Customers can upgrade their new Yaris with a range of personalisation options including a panoramic roof, LED daytime running lights and rear lamps, rear privacy glass Piri Piri red interior trim, including door panels, front seat upholstery inserts and soft-touch instrument panel.

Exclusively for Excel models, the Appearance option pack at £750 includes a rear spoiler, rear privacy glass and a Skyview (fixed) panoramic roof, and the Smart option park priced at £450 offers smart entry, push-button start (standard on Hybrid Excel) and an auto-folding function for the door mirrors.
