The new, facelift version 2012 Toyota Yaris goes on sale in the UK and the Japanese brand have announced its price along with details regarding some of its key features.
In the UK, the new Yaris is offered in four trims: T2, TR, SR and T Spirit. Toyota says the “heart of the range” is the mid-level TR, which is expected to command two thirds of sales. The TR can be ordered up with any of the three available engines (1.0-liter VVT-i, 1.3-liter Dual VVT-i and 1.4-liter D-4D) and a choice of three transmissions (five-speed manual, six-speed manual and Toyota’s Multidrive S CVT) in both three and five-door bodystyles. Key features of the TR include 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, stability control, Bluetooth and a rear-mounted parking camera.
The engines available on this third generation Yaris are a 1.0 and 1.33-litre petrols and a 1.4-litre D-4D turbodiesel.
The 3-cylinder 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol works together with a 5-speed manual and delivers 68 bhp at 6,000 rpm and 93 Nm at 3,600 rpm. This version returns 58,9 mpg and emits 111 g of CO2 per Km. Finally, the 1.4-liter D-4D diesel engine cranks out 89 hp and 151 pound-feet of torque. The fuel-sipping diesel returns an estimated 72.4 miles per imperial gallon (60.3 mpg U.S.).
The price for 2012 Toyota Yaris starts at 11,700 GBP and deliveries in the UK are scheduled to begin in September. The car is offered in 3- or 5-door body styles and some of the standard features include 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Vehicle Stability Control, and the Touch and Go system.
