Toyota Yaris (2020): At A Glance

Due for launch during the second half of 2020, Toyota says the new Yaris will strengthen its position as the firm's best-selling model in Europe, benefiting from significant advances in design and engineering.

The new Yaris is the first model to be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-B modular platform for small cars. This is the foundation for radically improved dynamic performance, safety and design freedom of the kind already witnessed in other TNGA-based Toyota models, such as the new Corolla, C-HR and RAV4.

It promises sharp styling, great manoeuvrability, excellent cost-of-ownership, comfort, quality and the clever application of new technologies, including multimedia functions and a new hybrid engine.

The Yaris was the first car in its class to offer customers the choice of self-charging hybrid power; now it builds on that reputation with a new 1.5-litre hybrid system, featuring a new three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine that delivers even greater efficiency – low CO2 emissions, improved fuel economy and, as a full hybrid, the ability to run on electric power alone.

Details of the UK model range, technical and equipment specifications and prices will be announced in 2020, nearer the on-sale date.
