What is New for 2014 Yaris?
On the outside there is a fresh look with a new cross-shaped design for the front end to keep it in line with the new Aygo. There are new headlight units and a new bumper, diffuser and light cluster arrangement at the rear.
The interior features improved materials and finishes, plus equipment levels have expanded.
Under the skin, there have been improvements to the suspension, handling and ride comfort, as well as significantly reducing noise and vibration levels.
The engine line-up remains the same with two petrol engines, a diesel and a hybrid. The efficiency of the three-cylinder 1.0-litre petrol unit has been improved with better economy and CO2 emissions below 100g/km. The hybrid has reduced CO2 levels from 79 to 75g/km, with an improvement in combined cycle fuel economy to 85.6mpgPublished 29 May 2014
