Prices announced for new Toyota Yaris Hybrid

Available to order now, the new Yaris Hybrid model will be on the road in the UK from early July, priced from £14,995.

The new development of Toyota’s Hybrid Synergy Drive system, uses a 1.5-litre VVT-i petrol engine, nickel-metal hydride battery pack and CVT (continuously variable transmission). CO2 emissions are 79g/km for the T3and T4 models and 85g/km for the T Spirit; respective official combined cycle fuel consumption figures are 80.7mpg and 76mpg.

The Yaris Hybrid range comes with three grades available: T3, T4 and T Spirit. All versions have five doors.

The Toyota Touch system can be upgraded to Toyota Touch and Go (£650), adding satellite navigation and Bluetooth features, plus the ability to access Google Local Search and connected services, such as live parking and fuel price information and local weather forecasts (enabling these services requires registration via Toyota’s customer web portal, plus compatible mobile phones with appropriate data plans and tethering).

All models are in Band A for Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax), which means a zero annual charge; likewise their sub-100g/km emissions gain exemption from the London congestion charge. For company car drivers the benefit-in-kind tax rate is just 10 per cent. Insurance groups are due to be announced in June.
