Toyota has introduced the new Yaris Edition and the Yaris Trend. The Yaris Edition extends the T2 specification adding a series of sporty features, including 15-inch Podium anthracite (smoke-finished), machined alloy wheels, front fog lamps, rear privacy glass, a dash of extra chrome exterior rear trim, a tachometer and a leather-trimmed gear knob. Manual air conditioning can be specified as an option. The Edition is powered by Toyota’s award-winning 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine, with five-speed manual transmission.
The Toyota Yaris Edition is offered in a three or five door version and prices start at approximately £11,695.
The Toyota Yaris Trend takes the sports-themed Yaris SR as its starting point, adding the new Podium alloys in 16-inch form and a chrome tailpipe trim. The Toyota Touch & Go multimedia system with satellite navigation can be specified as an option. The car is powered by a 1.33-litre VVT-i petrol unit, with a choice of six-speed manual or, in the five-door version, Toyota’s Multidrive S CVT automatic.
Both the new versions come with blacked-out C-pillars which, combining with darkened rear privacy glass and contrasting with Tyrol Silver or Cirrus White paintwork, create a floating roof effect.
