Toyota Yaris is the model that marked the history of the brand in Italy, marketed in its new version starting from July last year. Since introduction in 1999 more than one million units have been sold to date, volumes that represent almost half of Toyota’s total sales in Italy.
Yaris is a winning model, which can be defined as a brand within a brand. Its fourth generation is a perfect synthesis of the previous ones: it takes up the concept of ‘little genius’ of the first, it is safer than the second and more hybrid than the third generation.
The direct link with the first Yaris that we all remember is immediate, the same lines of the original design have been taken, now more modern and streamlined, and also the same winning concept of “small outside, big inside”, with compact dimensions, without ever sacrificing space in terms of interior comfort and habitability.
The new Yaris packs all the excellences of the Toyota group achieved in recent years, today we can define it as the maximum technological expression of the range and the precursor model for the new direction of the brand in the coming years. Yaris has always been synonymous with avant-garde, capable of setting new standards for the B segment both in terms of innovation and safety. Yaris has been renewed in every aspect and is still ready today to act as a reference point for the compact market.
The new Full Hybrid system
The fourth generation of Yaris boasts a new 1.5 liter Hybrid Dynamic Force engine, 3 cylinders, capable of delivering a maximum power of 116 HP, thanks to the Full Hybrid Electric system totally redesigned in every component and new lithium batteries, which raise the already high levels of performance, efficiency and driving pleasure. Fuel consumption and emissions are class leaders, the new Yaris is able to sail with zero emissions up to 130 km / h.

The safety system is one of the most advanced in the segment, Toyota Safety Sense is enriched by the Adaptive Full Range Cruise Control with Stop & Go and the Active Lane Maintenance System LTA. For the first time, the brand introduces on a car the road junction assistance function, which detects pedestrians and vehicles that engage the vehicle’s trajectory at intersections, and the emergency steering assistance system. Yaris is the first car in the compact segment with central airbag designed to best protect occupants in the event of a side impact.
