New Yaris T1 will be cheapest Toyota in SA

Recently Toyota stopped production of its budget car, the Tazz, which meant that the company didn't have any competitor in the important entry-level car segment.

The new Yaris T1 features a three-cylinder 1-litre engine with a power output of 51 kW at 6 000 r/min, while torque is 93 Nm at 3 600 r/min.

Unlike the Yaris T3, the T1 is also available in 3-door guise. There are four models in the T1 range and the base model has a price tag of R89 990.

All models get dual airbags as standard as well as ABS brakes with EBD.


  • T1 3-door - R89 990
  • T1 3-door with aircon - R99 400
  • T1 5-door - R97 900
  • T1 5-door with aircon - R105 400

  • Wheels24's Janine-Lee Gordon is to attend the launch of the T1 on Friday and will give her impressions of the newcomer on Monday.
