Toyota has unveiled its bold 2015 Yaris.
The 2015 Yaris will be available in 3-door or 5-door liftback models and has a distinct new look. The massive lower grille gives this Toyota an aggressive attitude.
Prices will start at about $15,000 and should make the Yaris a good value purchase with nice standard features including air conditioning and power windows and doors.
A quieter cabin is created through retuning the suspension, making the structure more rigid and additional sound insulation. This results in a more comfortable ride while a healthy dose of soft-touch materials gives the Yaris a premium feel and the sporty dash design continues the work Toyota did on the exterior.
The new Yaris will be powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder producing 106 hp and 103 ft-lbs of torque. It will be mated to either a five-speed manual with a hydraulic clutch or a four-speed electronically controlled automatic. Toyota claims the broad torque curve makes it feel quick and responsive.
Safety is always near the top Toyota’s list and the 2015 Yaris is equipped with nine airbags, including curtain shield airbags and front seat cushion airbags.
