The ever-popular Toyota Yaris has been a presence on UK roads for two decades, with each advancing year bringing evermore impressive technology, design refinement, and updated style. In 2019, arguably the most compelling development in the vehicle’s history is the availability of a new Toyota Yaris Hybrid edition, bringing motorists the same chic styling and combining it with intelligent, forward-thinking engineering.
The appearance of the Toyota Yaris Hybrid is almost identical to the regular edition of the vehicle, ensuring that the adoption of such technology is the norm and no longer a novelty. As such, you will be able to select a vehicle that is packed with chic styling, bold finishes, and alloy wheels that not only look great, but grip the road perfectly. Of course, subtle Hybrid branding will set the model apart from the rest of the range. But, with LED daytime running lights and bi-tone finishes available too, you can be confident of looking every inch the contemporary motorist.
Similarly stylish is the Yaris Hybrid’s cabin. Featuring room for up to five and with fold-down rear seats freeing up additional boot space, it has a level of practicality that may surprise. It’s an environment that provides great comfort too, with soft touch materials and quality upholstery throughout, meaning you can sink back and relax. Choose the top-of-the-range Excel trim level and you can even benefit from partial leather and Alcantara seats and privacy glass.
It’s in performance that any Hybrid model has to demonstrate its value. Thanks to the manufacturer’s rich heritage in such technology, you can rest assured that the new Yaris Hybrid will be able to return punchy performance that is both low in emissions and affordable in running costs. The 1.5-litre petrol Hybrid engine with automatic transmission packs 100bhp into its structure, meaning you will be able enjoy dynamic acceleration underpinned by intelligent innovation. Best-in-class CO2 emissions of just 91g/km ensure guilt-free driving.
The impressive technology isn’t just confined to the engine. Throughout the Yaris Hybrid lineup, you will be able to find trim levels that pack the vehicle with clever functionality. From the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system to Push Button Start, dual-zone automatic climate control to smartphone integration and control, there are myriad features available across the range that will enhance your driving experience.
For many, safety is the prime concern when it comes to selecting a vehicle, not least for those with a growing family. As a capable hatchback ideal for such motorists, the Yaris Hybrid has been designed to give the reassurance you need to tackle the road with confidence. Toyota Safety Sense - as standard in the Yaris Hybrid model - offers a suite of active safety measures to help you stay protected throughout your travels. Pre-Collision Assist, Lane Departure Warning, a reversing camera, and much more will all make driving safer than ever.
