Changes to Yaris lineup

2008-12-12 10:25

Toyota's popular Yaris hatchback and sedan models have rolled in for a mid-life refresh that includes a host of new features.

The Yaris Hatch range remains unchanged with either a 51-kW 1.0-litre powering the three- or five-door T1 derivatives, while the 63-kW 1.3-litre unit doing duty in the five-door T3s.

However, styling changes have been effected to the Yaris hatchback and include revised front and rear bumpers, a new grille, fresh headlamps and new detailing for the tail lamp clusters.

Interior changes include new upholstery, a new instrument cluster adding multi-information display for the T3 derivatives and an audio jack as standard across the range.

Furthermore, the T1 A/C models gain a radio with front-loading CD player and MP3 compatibility, while the T3 A/C now has electric operation for its side mirrors.

T3+ models have been bolstered with Bluetooth function with voice controls, two extra speakers, leather-covered steering wheel with adjustable for reach with audio satellite controls and a leather-covered gearstick housing.

Changes to the Yaris Sedan range are limited to the car's physical appearance.

A new grille and bumpers and, with the exception of the base T3 A/C model, side indicator integrated into the side mirrors have been added.

The T3 Spirit automatic has been dropped from the range, although an automatic is still offered on the T3+ specification.
