New Toyota Yaris: prices, specs and CO2 emissions

7 2020 Toyota Yaris

The all-new fourth-generation Toyota Yaris is now available to order, with prices starting from £19,910 on-the-road.

It is based on a new platform and features a redesigned hybrid powertrain, offering almost 70mpg and CO2 emissions from 92g/km.

The brand set out to improve the car’s driveability and make the Yaris more exciting. As such it has been given sportier styling and is available in two-tone paint finishes.

A longer wheelbase and wider track provides more interior space but also helps with handling and stability.

The driver now sits lower and further back in the car, while a minimalistic cabin reduces distractions and ensures everything falls close to hand.

One engine is offered across the Yaris range. It’s a 1.5-litre three-cylinder that is derived from the engine used in the Corolla and C-HR, paired with an automatic CVT.

It uses two motor/generators, one powering the front wheels and one used to start the engine and charge the battery.

Overall efficiency has increased by 22% and power is 16% higher, than the engine in the previous Yaris.

With 116PS, the Yaris can accelerate from 0-62mph in 9.7 seconds and is capable of running on electric at up to 80mph.

The four-model line-up includes Icon, Design, Dynamic and Excel trim grades. Prices start at £19,910 for the Icon.

Standard features include Toyota Safety Sense, automatic headlights and wipers, air conditioning electronic parking brake and smartphone integration via a seven-inch touchscreen.

Design grade, priced at £20,970 , comes with LED headlights, an eight-inch touchscreen and ‘binocular’ instrument display.

Dynamic (£21,920) features 17-inch alloy wheels, sports seats, keyless entry and JBL speaker system.

The Excel (£22,220) builds on the Design grade with leather upholstery, electric folding door mirrors and blind-spot monitor.

First deliveries will commence in September.
