Toyota introduced the new hatchback Toyota YarisOctober 16, 2019
Immediately after the leak into the Network of spy photos of the novelty, which was noticed in the parking lot without camouflage, the automaker published detailed information about the next generation of Toyota Yaris.
Toyota Motor Corporation introduced the world a new generation of the Yaris model. According to the announcement, the hatchback will go on sale in Japan, starting in mid-February 2020. It will be presented at VenusFort in Odaiba, Tokyo during the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show. The new Yaris will also be on display in showrooms throughout Japan from late October to December this year.
Recall that the first generation Yaris was created in 1999 as a car that will serve as the world standard for compact cars, utilizing the full range of Toyota’s technological achievements. The automaker modified the platform and all major components, including the engine, transmission and suspension, to achieve large interior space and outstanding basic performance with minimal dimensions.
The new Yaris is a next-generation compact car that uses the TNGA platform on which Toyota will build its compact cars for developed countries in the future, and equipped with components completely built from scratch, including the engine, hybrid system, transmission and suspension. In addition to a light but very rigid body and a low center of gravity, the Yaris is offered with four different powertrains providing maneuverability, superior comfort, and smooth acceleration.
Under the hood of the model is a new 1.5-liter in-line three-cylinder engine Dynamic Force Engine and Direct Shift-CVT, as well as a 1.5-liter Dynamic Force engine with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a modified 1.0-liter engine with compact and lightweight variator. In addition, the automaker announced the release of a hybrid version of the Yaris with a 1.5-liter Dynamic Force engine and a new generation hybrid system.
The new Yaris is first offered with the E-Four system (electric all-wheel drive system). Toyota was among the first to adopt a number of advanced features that do not lend themselves to a common hierarchy depending on the size of the car, such as Advanced Park, Toyota’s advanced auto-parking system, the latest Toyota Safety Sense and Display Audio with smartphone connectivity.
