The introduction of the new Toyota Yaris was nine months ago. But the small car can now also be ordered. Prices start at 15,790 euros and even when fully equipped with the new hybrid drive, the small car remains far below the more expensive competing models.
Respectable standard equipment
The fourth generation is based on the new GA-B platform from TNGA. It measures 3.94 meters in length, making it shorter, wider and flatter than before. And not to forget, a lot shorter than comparable competing products. You can choose between six equipment lines and three drives. The normal model is only available as a five-door hatchback (except for the GR Yaris). In the basic version, the model has electric exterior mirrors, electric front windows, air conditioning, central locking and a 4.2-inch information display. For safety, eight airbags are accommodated, as well as an emergency braking system, which also recognizes pedestrians and cyclists, the intersection assistant, an active lane departure warning, the high beam assistant and traffic sign recognition.
Three motors to choose from
The 1.0-liter naturally aspirated petrol engine (5-speed manual transmission) with 53 kW (71 hp) is available at a price of 15,790 euros. The new 1.5-liter hybrid starts with 85 kW (116 hp) at 19,990 euros. Despite the same equipment variant, the hybrid is better equipped with an electronic parking brake, automatic air conditioning and a center console with armrest and disc brakes on the rear axle. The slightly more powerful 1.5-liter petrol engine (6-speed manual gearbox or Multidrive) with 90 kW (121 PS) can only be ordered from the Comfort version for 18,490 euros.
