Toyota revealed earlier this year that their Yaris supermini is getting a little nip and tuck soon, today we learned that it will go back on sale starting at £10,995.
We already know the exterior changes are pretty minor, limited to a toned down version of the new family nose seen on the Aygo and some sculpting around the back.
The major alterations to the lineup are a revamped trim level, with the existing Active and Icon levels being joined by new Sport and Excel trims.
The higher trim models gain ‘Touch 2’, a new seven inch infotainment system that replaces the predecessor’s rather underpowered one.
Under the bonnet there is no change to the current line up of engines.
Active is the base model, available with only the 1.0 litre VVT-i petrol it includes powered front windows, 6-speaker audio system with USB and Aux-in, 7 airbags, built in tyre pressure monitor, Vehicle Stability Control and traction control.
An upgrade to Icon, which starts at £12,745, brings a choice of the 1.0litre or 1.33litre petrol, 1.4litre diesel or a 1.5litre petrol-hybrid.
Inside it adds 15in alloy wheels, projector headlights, body colour-matched electrically adjustable heated door mirrors and door handles, Toyota’s ‘Touch 2’ infotainment system, rear-view camera, air conditioning, front fog lamps, Bluetooth for phone and audio streaming, leather steering wheel with audio and phone switches. Climate control is added as standard on the hybrid.
The £14,995 Sport adds 16in machined alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, rear LED lights, DAB radio, rear privacy glass, a rear spoiler, rear disc brakes.
Another £1,500 for the Excel brings 16in silver alloy wheels, part-leather seats, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, dusk-sensing headlights (which we presume means automatic headlights and climate control).
The new Aygo is on sale now, with first deliveries expected in August.
