The Toyota Yaris is emblematic of the subcompact car, having been designed according to minimalist principles that allow it to securely and comfortably carry 5 passengers in its small frame. Essentially the same car as the Vitz which was first released to much fanfare domestically in 1999, winning the Japan Car of the Year 1999-2000, the Yaris was offered to overseas markets in the same year under this new name.
The Yaris is available as a hatchback, coupe, or sedan, and has one of either a series 3 cylinder 1L, series 4 cylinder 1.3L or 1.5L VVT-i engine, capable of producing 71, 87 and 110 hp respectively. The Yaris uses a FF layout and CVT as standard, with the 1.3L model available in 4 speed AT 4WD, and, depending on the year and model, is able to achieve fuel efficiencies of 16.6 to 25 km/l (with the recent hybrid models reaching up to 34.3 km/l). As safety features, all models of the Yaris come complete with dual airbags, ABS with EBD that creates firm braking, brake assist, and seat belts with pretensioner and force limiter. Environmentally friendly as well, the Yaris has also achieved a 'Super' rating for its low level of exhaust emissions. Zip around town with the Yaris available at BE FORWARD now!
