The all-new, fourth-generation Toyota Yaris is a car that meets the demands of urban life, but also provides enjoyment on the open road or highway.
It has been designed to be agile on crowded and confined urban streets, reflected in its compact proportions and class-leading, tight turning circle, while at the same time providing a spacious, comfortable and high-quality interior with equipment specifications that meet all today's customer priorities for connectivity and seamless access to information.
The key to Toyota meeting its ambitions for the new Yaris is its first application of the Toyota New Global Architecture - TNGA - philosophy to a small car, introducing the modular GA-B platform that will underpin a series of new models. The GA-B platform is central to the Yaris' improved dynamic performance, giving a lower centre of gravity and much greater body rigidity. It also enabled the designers to create a more distinctive and powerful-looking car with an appealing and individual identity.
The new model uses the latest evolution of Toyota's fourth-generation hybrid electric powertrain, giving the car better fuel economy, lower emissions and a greatly enhanced capability to operate on its electric power alone, at higher speeds and over longer distances.
In fact, on urban journeys, new Yaris can operate for a significant amount of the time with zero emissions, just like a battery electric vehicle, but with no concerns about recharging.
Reinforcing its reputation as a segment leader in safety, the Toyota Yaris again raises the standard. True to Toyota's commitment to democratising safety, it benefits from a greater range of Toyota Safety Sense active systems as standard, including Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), such as Lane Trace Assist, Emergency Steering Assist and Intersection Turn Assistance.
