The new Toyota Yaris has a bolder, sharper and more dynamic appearance. Detail touches include a larger front quarterlight with the A pillar moved further forward with a more steeply raked windscreen. The rear side windows have been rendered smarter as the vertical bars have been discarded that previously divided the glazing. To complete the new look new 15 and 16-inch alloy wheel designs are offered with a choice of 10 colours for the body, including two completely new shades Deep Aqua and Burning Red.

The interior of the new Toyota Yaris has also been updated with new interior features and higher quality trim materials. The front seats are new, with increased vertical adjustment and, on some models, an arm rest for the driver. Their design gives both better body holding and comfort, with wider, higher sided cushions that have a raised front edge which can help combat tiredness on long journeys. The updated interior has a quality look and feel with gun metal trims around the driver’s instruments, the multimedia touchscreen and air vents, and chrome detailing on the controls and switchgear.

Overall luggage capacity has grown to 347 litres (to roof line) with the rear seats in place, 768 litres when they are folded flat. And to make the job of loading up easier, the tailgate is 20mm wider than on the previous model.
