The New Toyota Yaris With Toyota Optimal DrivePublished 8 January 2010
The top selling Toyota Yaris enters 2010 as an even stronger market proposition, thanks to a class-leading combination of fuel efficiency and low emissions, backed up by enhanced equipment specifications and styling details.
Thanks to the successful application of Toyota Optimal Drive technologies, the Toyota Yaris continues to set standards in its class, with every model in the range delivering sub-120g/km CO2 emissions.
The 1.33 Dual VVT-i engine with Stop & Start demonstrates the all-round achievement of Toyota Optimal Drive. As shown in the table below, it gives the Toyota Yaris more power and torque than its leading competitor models, while at the same time returning better emissions and fuel economy - 120g/km and 55.4mpg (combined cycle).
Similarly the 1.0 VVT-i petrol unit - three-time class winner in the International Engine of the Year Awards - and the 1.4 D-4D diesel maximise efficiency and emissions performance with refinement and driveability. Respectively they produce 118 and 109g/km of CO2 (110g/km 1.4 D-4D with Multimode transmission) and return combined cycle fuel economy of 56.5 and 68.9mpg.
In terms of cost ownership, Yaris owners can thus benefit from significant savings on fuel and annual VED costs.
