Yaris To Launch This Summer Bursting With KitWed, 02 Jul 2014
JAPANESE car maker Toyota is launching its new Yaris supermini this summer, and hopes to broaden the car’s appeal with a revised range.
The firm is offering more choice, more equipment options and a wealth of advanced features for on-board comfort, communications, safety and style as it launches the Yaris into an increasingly competitive market sector.
Established Active and Icon grades are joined by new Sport and Excel trims. The Hybrid variant 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.
High equipment levels feature throughout the range, with a leather-trimmed steering wheel, air conditioning and the latest Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system fitted as standard from Icon grade. Climate control is standard for all Hybrid and Excel variants.
Cost options include Toyota’s Skyview panoramic roof, LED daytime running lights and rear lamps, rear privacy glass and a multimedia system with navigation. Sport models can further be specified with red interior trim.
On-the-road prices start at £10,995 for the 1.0-litre three-door Active model and rise to £17,695 for the range-topping Hybrid model in Excel trim.
