The new 2013 Toyota Yaris Trend will debut at the Paris Motor Show. The exterior of the Yaris Trend retains the blacked out B and C-pillars that create a floating roof effect with chrome door sills and door mirror covers. Chrome elements are included in the fog light surrounds and headlamps, versions with white paint have matching white covers in the headlamps units. At the rear there is a roof spoiler and hybrid-style LED lamp clusters. The two-tone 16-inch alloy wheels have machine-finished surfaces and there is a distinctive Deco line surface detail that runs back across the bodywork from the headlights.
The interior of the Toyota Yaris Trend reflects the design theme outside, with a black and white finish and a contrasting touch of ochre to create a clean style with plenty of visual impact. The black and white design theme is complimented by the seat upholstery. The upper seatback bolsters and headrests are finished in a new, pearl white leather-look material with more ochre stitching and the headrests (front and rear) have the Deco line surface finishing.
As well as distinctive looks the Yaris Trend retains the fundamental qualities that set it apart from the supermini pack. It may be the most compact car in its class, but clever Toyota packaging means there is class-leading space inside. It also has the tightest turning circle at 4.7 metres making it a master of manoeuvring in tight city streets and parking spaces.
