Toyota has announced a revamped Yaris range, which is said to see significant improvements to the outgoing model’s design, dynamic performance, and styling, and will come in five grade options: Terra, Aura Luna, Luna Sport, and Sol.
Four of these are all available in hybrid. Hybrid currently accounts for more than 35% of Yaris sales in Ireland.
The new Yaris is said to make a stronger style statement, displaying new front and rear designs that give the car a stronger harmony of design and project a more active and dynamic look.
The appearance is also more refined, with detailing in the bodywork and the cabin and new colour choices that enhance the model’s already high levels of perceived quality.
Toyota says the focus for changes to the Yaris’ interior was to keep the look and ambience of the cabin feeling fresh and modern, introducing new upholsteries, colours, and trim details and upgrading the instrumentation and controls to ensure excellent ergonomics and HMI (human-machine interface) performance.
Yaris Hybrid remains a unique proposition in its segment, with best-in-class CO2 emissions. Yaris Hybrid noise and vibration levels have been significantly reduced with new engine mounts, roll restrictor, front driveshaft, and sub frame.
New-design engine mounts, shock absorber adjustments, and retuned electric power steering improve Yaris Hybrid’s ride comfort and steering accuracy.
