The all-new Toyota Yaris has been revealed, and is set to be launched during the second half of 2020.
The Yaris is the first model to be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-B modular platform for small cars.
This is the foundation for improved dynamic performance, safety and design freedom.
It offers sharp styling, great manoeuvrability, comfort, quality and the application of new technologies, including multimedia functions and a new hybrid powertrain.
It has a 1.5-litre hybrid system, featuring a new three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine that delivers even greater efficiency – low CO2 emissions, improved fuel economy and, as a full hybrid, drivers can use the self-charging hybrid power, should they wish to.
Prices and further details for the UK model range will be revealed closer to the on-sale date.
The new Yaris’s exterior design concept is defined as “Condensed and Agile”.
Toyota has reduced Yaris’s overall length of previous models by 5mm, but at the same time increased its wheelbase by 50mm, ensuring the car is agile and manoeuvrable in city driving and parking, but has a comfortable, spacious interior.
The interior has high-quality materials, including a felt trim finish for the door panels.
It offers a central Toyota Touch touchscreen, a TFT multi-information display in the instrument binnacle and a 10-inch colour head-up display.
The larger size display allows the the driver focus on driving without distraction. It projects key driving data and warnings, such as navigation prompts and speed limits, onto the windscreen within the driver’s view.
