Toyota officially unveils updated Yaris

August 20, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The new car will be sold as a hatchback and sedan. The changes mainly affected the exterior and interior.

Toyota held a presentation of the updated Yaris model. This is a model that will be sold in Thailand. Recall that Toyota Yaris XP210 for Japan and Europe has been updated quite recently. For the Asian market, Yaris has the XP150 series and is much larger than the Yaris XP210 – its length reaches 4,140 mm versus 3,940 mm for the opponent.

But in terms of equipment, the new product turned out to be much simpler. Note that the update for the Thai market affected two body types at once – a sedan and a hatchback. On the exterior, we note the updated design of the bumpers and LED headlights in the maximum configuration.

The interior has received higher-quality finishing materials, and a 6.7-inch multimedia system with support for voice control and Apple CarPlay function is available for an additional fee. In the maximum version, the updated Yaris will be equipped with an emergency braking system and lane control.

The power plant has passed from the previous version, but it is quite fresh, as it was updated about a year ago.

With a 1.2-liter volume, the engine is capable of delivering 92 hp. Such an engine significantly lightens the tax burden in Thailand, and also has a very low gasoline consumption. A variator works as a transmission with a power plant.

Meanwhile, it became known that Toyota and Mazda are going to produce crossovers on a common platform. The production of cars will be established at a plant in the United States, which is now in a phase of active construction.
