In Japan, the updated Toyota Yaris model will be released on February 10 of next year.

The new generation of Yaris is based on the GA-B architecture, which is a compact version of the global TNGA platform. In the initial configuration, the novelty will receive a 1.0 liter engine, with which a lightweight variator will work.

In addition, a 1.5-liter engine working in conjunction with a 6-speed manual transmission or Direct Shift variator will also be offered to Japanese customers. A hybrid hatchback variation will also be available, consisting of a 1.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor, as well as a lithium-ion battery.

 The new Yaris has a wide range of equipment: the Toyota Teammate Advanced Park system, the Toyota Safety Sense kit, which can now detect oncoming cars while turning right at the intersection and pedestrians crossing the street when turning right or left. In addition, the hatchback now has Turn swivel seats, making it easy to get in and out of the car.

  The cost of the basic modification of Yaris will be 1.395 thousand yen. At the same time, the flagship version with a hybrid powertrain will have to pay 2,493 thousand yen. At the first stages of sales, the new model will be offered exclusively with a front-wheel drive system, and in April next year, Yaris with all-wheel drive will appear on the market. Production of the machine will be established at the Japanese factory Iwate.
