Toyota has announced the Yaris Trend, a special edition aimed at "younger, design-conscious" buyers
16 September 2012

Toyota has announced a special edition Yaris, which it says is targeted at a younger audience. 

The Toyota Yaris Trend features black B- and C-pillars to create a floating roof effect, chrome foglamp surrounds, two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels and a roof spoiler with LED lamp clusters.

Inside, the Yaris Trend has a black and white colour scheme with ochre accents. The seats are upholstered in a “leather look” material. Toyota has changed the geometry of the centre console and the upper dashboard panels are finished in white. 

The gear shift has a shorter throw and features a larger gear knob.

Deco line graphics are featured along the front wings, doors, dashboard and headrests.

The Toyota Yaris Trend is fitted with the firm's 1.33-litre four-cylinder petrol unit, and is mated to either a six-speed manual or a Multidrive CVT. The new model is priced at £15,570 in manual specification, while the auto commands a £1000 premium.

Our Verdict

Toyota Yaris

The original Toyota Yaris was a landmark car, but it then lost ground to more talented rivals. Can it regain its crown?
