The launch of the third generation Yaris opens a new chapter in the model’s UK success story. The current Yaris won praise for its roomy interior, durability and versatility, the efficiency of its engines and its easy-to-drive character around town. New Yaris will consolidate these strengths and go further to offer sharper, contemporary styling, a step-up in quality, even greater agility and a breakthrough in affordable multimedia connectivity with Toyota Touch and Go.

Positioned at the heart of the small car market, the new Yaris will appeal both to technology-focused customers and those motorists for whom quality, practicality and value for money are the key considerations when choosing a new car.

The Toyota Touch audio system, including touchscreen controls, is fitted as standard to all but the entry level new Yaris model in the UK, additionally providing Bluetooth, a USB port and a rear parking camera. This can be upgraded to the Toyota Touch and Go system which provides full map satellite navigation and access to a range of connected information services that can be accessed and downloaded via a dedicated Toyota customer portal.

The new Yaris continues with the successful mixture of powertrains featured in the previous generation model: 1.0 and 1.33-litre petrol units and a 1.4-litre D-4D turbodiesel.

All engines benefit from the application of Toyota Optimal Drive, a range of engineering and design technologies which, combined with weight-saving measures and aerodynamics improvements, help cut fuel consumption and emissions without harming power and torque levels.

Toyota’s three-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol is a textbook example of miniaturisation, a reference point for compact, efficient engineering. Working with a five-speed manual transmission, the latest version of the 998cc unit generates 68bhp at 6,000rpm and maximum torque of 93Nm at 3,600rpm. Fuel consumption has been improved by four per cent to 58.9mpg and CO2 emissions are down by seven per cent to 111g/km.

The 1.33-litre Dual VVT-i engine is also light and compact, with a small bore and long stroke to give a very high power-to-weight ratio. It generates 98bhp at 6,000rpm and, at the peak of a gentle torque curve, 125Nm at 4,000rpm. When matched to the new Multidrive S transmission, fuel economy is 56.5mpg and CO2 emissions are 118g/km.

Multidrive S, Toyota’s latest continuously variable transmission (CVT), features a manual override, sequential seven-step mode that the driver can operate using either the gearshift lever or paddle shifts on the steering wheel.

The 1.4-litre D-4D engine is fitted as standard with a diesel particulate filter (DPF) and is matched to a six-speed manual transmission. It produces 89bhp at 3,800rpm and maximum torque of 205Nm between 1,800 and 2,800rpm. For new Yaris, combined cycle fuel economy has been improved by seven per cent to 72.4mpg and CO2 emissions are six per cent lower at 104g/km.

Some say that his blood is actually RON98 petrol and some say that his right foot weighs over 20kg. But all that we know about Faez is that he loves to drive and is a JDM enthusiast.

Wow, maximum torque of 205Nm between 1,800 and 2,800rpm for a 1.4L diesel. Even for some 2.0L NA petrol engines cannot even have that kinda torque, not even at such low rpms. The diesel coupled with a manual transmission should be a hoot to drive, plus if the kerb weight is around 1 ton it will be great during acceleration.
