Toyota has bulked up its Yaris range with the new Yaris Edition and Yaris Trend models
9 August 2012

Toyota has added two new variants to its Yaris range – the Yaris Edition and Yaris Trend – which are priced from £11,695 and £13,795 respectively. 

The Edition model is based on the T2-spec Yaris, which comes with electric windows and mirrors as standard. The Edition model adds front foglights, 15-inch alloy wheels, chrome and leather interior trim flourishes and tinted windows.

By comparison, the Trend builds on the more highly specified Yaris SR, which in standard trim features part-leather upholstery, lower-than-standard suspension and Toyota’s Touch multimedia system. The Trend adds larger 16-inch alloys, blacked-out C-pillars and a chrome tailpipe trim.

Power for the Edition model is courtesy of Toyota's 68bhp 1.0-litre VVT unit, which is driven via a five-speed manual gearbox. The Trend variant is offered with Toyota’s 98bhp 1.33-litre VVT-i petrol engine. Available transmissions include a six-speed manual or Multidrive S CVT transmission. 

Toyota’s new Yaris variants are available in both three and five-door guises and are on sale now.

Our Verdict

Toyota Yaris

The original Toyota Yaris was a landmark car, since then it has lost ground to more talented rivals. Can it regain its crown from the formidable and long in the tooth Ford Fiesta?

Not normally a fan of the fakey gloss pillar treatments (Roomster, Swift et al), but this instantly makes the Yaris a bit more appealling IMHO. Accentuates that rising side crease for a much nicer stance, bit Evoque-like I s'pose.

Not sure it would tempt me into a Toyota from more youthful hatches in the sector, but good effort.

You're completely right! Looks a lot better with it for some reason
