The Toyota Yaris has received a radical refresh for 2014, including revised styling inspired by the new Aygo. Toyota has also given the interior a makeover, with the updated model arriving in showrooms in the summer.
Building on the Japanese manufacturer’s current design language, the Yaris now features a toned-down version of the Aygo’s distinctive ‘X’ cross front fascia as well as new headlamps. The rear has received a similarly treatment, now fitted with a restyled LED light clusters, a new rear bumper with integrated diffuser and a reshaped surround for the number plate.
Although interior images of the updated Yaris are yet to be released, improvements include a more spacious feel to the cabin, better quality of materials and greater levels of colour and equipment choice.
Power comes from the same range of engines as you’ll find in the outgoing model, with customers able to choose from a 1.0- or 1.33-litre petrol motor, a 1.4-litre diesel and a full-hybrid powertrain combining a 1.5-litre petrol engine and electric motor. Toyota has also fitted a new suspension setup, helping improve handling and comfort.
Official pricing and further details will be revealed closer to the car’s launch in the summer.
