The new Toyota Yaris will cost from £11,170 and is available to order now.
Three powertrains are offered at launch: 1.0-litre and 1.33-litre petrol units and a 1.4-litre D-4D turbodiesel – with a hybrid version following in 2012. Trim levels range from the entry-level T2, to the TR, SR and range-topping T-Spirit version.
Toyota’s £11,170 entry-level T2 Yaris is powered by a three-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine, which produces 68bhp and 69lb ft of torque, with fuel consumption figures of 58.9mpg and 111g/km CO2.
The mid-spec £12,260 TR version is expected to account for two thirds of Yaris sales. Available with all engine combinations, features of the car include 15-inch alloys, air-conditioning, Bluetooth and a rear parking camera, as well as Toyota’s ‘Touch’ infotainment system with touchscreen audio controls.
Further up the range, the £13,335 SR model is available only with the 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine. SR spec adds 16-inch alloys, rear spoiler, front fog lamps, part-leather interior, lower suspension and tinted windows.
Prices for the range-topping 1.33-litre petrol T-Spirit Yaris start from £14,385 for the six-speed manual, climbing to £15,385 for the CVT ’box model. Included are panoramic glass roof, climate control, automatic headlights and windscreen wipers and ‘smart entry and start'.
The entry-level £14,260 1.4-litre D-4D Yaris TR produces 89bhp and 151lb ft of torque. Fuel economy has been improved by seven per cent, up to 72.4mpg, compared with the previous version, with CO2 emissions under 104g/km.
