2012 Toyota Yaris

Here it is, the new face of the popular Toyota Yaris coming out next year as a 2012 model.

The car has been unveiled in Japan as the Vitz, its name in JDM, and while it has grown slightly in size it is still a very compact hatchback suitable for busy cities and urban life.

As for the design, the new Yaris, letting go of most of its feminine curves, has got a bit pointy and edgy at front. It’s a bit sportier than the last model at front, but at the back it is still kinda cutesy. The exterior design achieves high aerodynamic performance (coefficient drag value of 0.285) contributing to better fuel economy.

The 1.3-liter models are now equipped with a 1NR-FE engine with Dual VVT-i (Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligent). Pairing with a Super CVT-i (Super Continuously Variable Transmission-intelligent) transmission achieves outstanding fuel efficiency of 24.0 km/L (two-wheel drive models). It also comes with Smart Stop package, featuring a new idling-stop function.

The interior is also much upgraded, as the leg room has been extended by 35 mm to 1,915 mm, creating a roomier space. The rear seats fold in a 6:4 split, enabling flexible arrangement. The vertical adjustment range of the driver’s seat is now 60 mm (15 mm more than the previous model) and the seat slide adjustment range is 10 mm with 24 steps (8 steps more than the previous model), allowing the driver to achieve an optimal driving position.
