An updated Toyota Yaris has been revealed in Thailand. See what’s changed!
Toyota has given its Yaris hatchback a round of updates and while there are no mechanical changes, the exterior and interior of the Yaris has been mildly revised.
In terms of styling, the latest Yaris rides on newly-fashioned 15-inch alloy wheels while the front bumper has been revised along with the updated foglight housings. The images seen here show the Yaris in two-tone guise which is rather appealing. You might notice that the headlights are now a bit sharper-looking too.
As for the interior, Toyota has installed an automatic dimming mirror as well as a revised instrument panel. Rear passenger also have access to a pair of USB ports for charging or connecting devices while leather upholstery further adds to the improvements inside the Yaris.
The Thai-spec Yaris is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense which incorporates a pre-collision system, brake assist and hill-descent control.
The South African- spec Yaris uses a naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre petrol engine with 79 kW and 140 Nm and can be had with a 5-speed manual or a CVT. In Thailand, the Yaris is powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine with 68 kW and 109 Nm.
