As part of the update for the new 2014 Toyota Yaris and Yaris Hybrid models – which go on sale today – Toyota updated the trim levels and added more kit. Revisions to the 1.4-litre diesel engine mean emissions are just 99g/km, making it exempt from road tax.
The new trim levels – dubbed Active, Icon, Icon Plus and Trend – replace the old T2 and TR specifications, while also bringing the Yaris more in line with the rest of the Toyota line up. The range starts from £10,895, with USB connectivity, steering wheel mounted controls, traction control and front electric windows standard throughout the range. Icon spec models are priced from £13,970 but only available with the 1.33-litre petrol engine and benefit from 15-inch alloy wheels, body coloured door mirrors, touchscreen multimedia system, Bluetooth, air-con and reversing rear camera.
Icon Plus adds auto lights and wipers, LED rear lights, automatic dual zone climate control, cruise control and all-round electric windows. Prices start from £12,820 fitted with the 1.0-litre petrol motor and rise to £15,670 for the frugal 1.4-litre diesel engine. Top-spec Trend models are priced from £14,995, fitted with 16-inch alloys, chrome detailing, privacy glass, a leather steering wheel and white dashboard inserts.
The Yaris Hybrid model is available in all trim levels bar Icon and each comes fitted with the 1.5-litre petrol engine twinned with an electric motor and CVT automatic gearbox. Prices start at £15,495 and rise to £17,495.
A number of option packs are also available on the 2014 Yaris, including a Smart Pack (£300), which adds keyless entry and push-button start and a Style Pack (£500) adding LED daytime running lights, aluminium scuff plates and a chrome tipped exhaust pipe.
