Product Overview

The 4th-generation Toyota Yaris is designed for urban driving as well as the open road, reflected in its compact proportions and class-leading, tight turning circle, while at the same time providing a spacious, comfortable and high-quality interior with equipment specifications.
The new Yaris is the first application of the Toyota New Global Architecture – TNGA – philosophy to a small car, introducing the modular GA-B platform that will underpin a series of new models. It uses the latest evolution of Toyota’s fourth-generation hybrid electric powertrain, giving the car better fuel economy, lower emissions and a greatly enhanced capability to operate on its electric power alone, at higher speeds and over longer distances.
The 4th-gen Toyota Yaris benefits from a greater range of Toyota Safety Sense active systems as standard, including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), such as Lane Trace Assist, Emergency Steering Assist and Intersection Turn Assistance. The functionality of the Pre-Collision System has been increased so that it can detect pedestrians by day and night and cyclists in daytime driving.

Reviewers from autocar have found:
Three-cylinder engine sounds vocally meek-and-mild at first; a bit like an angry Daihatsu Charade with a loud-hailer. But once you’ve discovered how keenly it responds to throttle inputs, how indefatigably boosty it feels through the mid-range, and how freely it revs beyond 5000rpm. I’d swear it feels every bit as potent as early Subaru Impreza Turbos did, only without the laggy pause for intake of breath of the old Scoob.
  • Powerful turbocharged engine
  • Punchy mid-range
  • Impressive handling
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The Yaris is a great performer around town, and certainly won’t be caught out on motorway stretches. The dimensions of this Yaris have actually shrunk compared to the previous model, with overall length slightly reduced and a lower roofline than before. There are four core trim-levels to choose from; the entry-level Icon is well-equipped, followed by Design, Dynamic and the top-spec Excel equipment lines. Standard equipment includes 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights and wipers, adaptive cruise control, air-con and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.
  • Stylish looks
  • Good fuel economy
  • Lack of practicality
  • Dull cabin
