The Yaris nameplate is no stranger to South Africa, This marks the introduction of an all- new Yaris – tailored to specifically cater to the needs of the ever-evolving South African customer.

An all-new design takes centre stage, with a profile reminiscent of its larger sibling, the Auris. The front design features sleek headlamps, which flow smoothly towards the centre. A prominent trapezoidal grille occupies the lower apron complete with honeycomb-patterned screen. The top corners house the Daytime Running Lights (DRL), visually aligned by a slim air aperture. The side profile is classic hatchback with a style line extending from the bumper corners to the rear of the vehicle – enhancing the feeling of continuity. Focusing on the rear, the sleek design is emphasised by the continuation of the character line from the sides to the rear, svelte rear light clusters and black central garnish. These attributes combine to communicate a sense of width and create an advanced look.

The grown-up feel continues indoors as the new Yaris features a spacious and inviting interior space. The operation zone is furnished in piano black trim with chrome-plated switchgear – which exude a sense of style and solidity. The lower section also features two cup holders, softly illuminated by an LED mood-light. Both front and rear seats have been designed with comfort and ergonomics in mind, whilst not detracting from the interior flair.

Powering the new Yaris is a 1.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engine. Utilising dual VVT-i and a DOHC 16-valve layout, the engine delivers a rev-happy 79kW and 140 Nm. A singular engine option is carried across the range.

Buyers have the choice of either a 5-speed transmission or Toyota ‘Multidrive’ Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), driving the front wheels. The CVT unit has revised control logic to enable it to react faster to acceleration input – particularly when re-accelerating from a coasting condition.

All Yaris models come with a 3-year/45 000 kilometre service plan and 3-year/100 000 kilometre warranty. Customers additionally have the option of upgrading the above to a longer term/and or higher mileage through Toyota Value added services. Service intervals are set at 15 000 kilometres.
