‘The next generation of Toyota’s iconic compact hatchback is better than ever—with more style, more space, more tech, improved hybrid fuel efficiency, and more driving character. It uses the Toyota New Global Architecture, the same modular platform that underpins the larger (and frankly very good) Corolla. The benefits are a much stiffer car, a lower centre of gravity and accommodation for several driver assistance systems, all of which are standard on the Yaris.
The Yaris pulls away under quick and quiet electric power alone, and the stab of torque is useful when pulling onto roundabouts.
The Yaris, then, is now better than before in the areas that matter and probably more characterful than at any time since its inception.’
