Toyota to Launch New Yaris with Fuel Efficiency of 36.0 Kilometers Per liter in Japan on February 2020
Toyota will launch its new model Yaris on February 10, 2020 in Japan. The new Yaris is the first model to adopt the TNGA platform (GA-B) for compact cars, and features a lightweight and highly rigid body with a low center of gravity. The car’s next-generation hybrid system is based around a 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine, and fuses powerful, seamless driving performance with world-leading fuel efficiency for a compact car of 36.0 kilometers per liter, according to WLTC test cycles. The new Yaris is the first Toyota compact car to feature the E-Four electric four-wheel-drive system.
The new model Yaris was developed to combine the nimble handling characteristic of compact cars with high-quality ride comfort and the latest safety and security technologies that significantly exceed customer expectations. The gasoline-powered grades are equipped with a newly developed 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder Dynamic Force Engine, with the option of either a six-speed manual transmission or a Direct Shift-CVT with 2WD or 4WD settings that provides smooth, direct acceleration. In order to provide customers with a greater variety of choice, there is also a grade that pairs an improved 1.0-liter engine with a lighter and more compact CVT.
The new model Yaris is also available as part of the Welcab series, with the Wheelchair Storage Device model allowing a wheelchair weighing 35 kilograms or less to be smoothly loaded in the trunk. The loading function is motorized, enabling wheelchairs to be easily loaded and unloaded by caregivers. Type I features a Turn Tilt Seat―which enables the seat to be turned and tilted―in the front passenger seat as standard; Type II features a Turn Tilt Seat in both the driver seat and the front passenger seat as standard.
The new Yaris is equipped with a wide range of advanced and convenient functions: it is the first Toyota car to be equipped with Toyota Teammate Advanced Park (including Panoramic View Monitor functions), Toyota’s advanced parking support system; it features the latest Toyota Safety Sense, which is capable of detecting oncoming cars when turning right at an intersection, and of detecting pedestrians crossing the street when turning right or left; and it comes with Turn Tilt Seats, which make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle. Display Audio, which can be connected to smartphones, is also fitted to all grades as standard.
The new Toyota Yaris features a 1,500-watt accessory power outlet. This not only allows the use of electrical products using the same electrical outlets found in the home, but also enables the vehicle to be used as a power generator during blackouts and other times of emergency.
