Toyota introducing more efficient petrol engine for Yaris

Toyota is introducing a new 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine to the Yaris range to replace the current 1.33-litre unit, offering improved fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.

The ESTEC unit has been developed in anticipation of the future Euro 6c emissions standard and RDE (Real Driving Emission) homologation requirements.

It benefits from new technical features that deliver better performance and a more enjoyable drive, while at the same time achieving a reduction of up to 12% in fuel consumption, under current NEDC official test criteria.

In Yaris the naturally aspirated engine develops a maximum 110PS and peak torque of 136Nm at 4,400rpm. Compared to the 1.33-litre unit, it is 0.8 seconds quicker in acceleration from 0 – 62mph (11.0 versus 11.8).
