Introducing the new Toyota Yaris: designed for urban life

The all-new Toyota Yaris renews the model’s reputation for ground-breaking achievements. Due for launch during the second half of 2020, it will strengthen its position as Toyota’s best-selling model in Europe, benefiting from significant advances in design and engineering.

It responds directly to the needs and preferences of today’s compact car customers

The new Yaris is the first model to be built on the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) GA-B modular platform for small cars. This is the foundation for radically improved dynamic performance, safety and design freedom of the kind already witnessed in other TNGA-based models, such as the new Corolla, C-HR and RAV4.

In every aspect, it responds directly to the needs and preferences of today’s compact car customers: sharp styling, great manoeuvrability, excellent cost-of-ownership, comfort, quality and the clever application of new technologies, including multimedia functions and a new hybrid powertrain.

New Yaris

Yaris was the first car in its class to offer customers the choice of self-charging hybrid power. Now it builds on that reputation with a new fourth-generation self-charging hybrid system. At its heart is a new three-cylinder 1.5-litre petrol engine that delivers even greater efficiency – low emissions, improved fuel economy and, as a full hybrid, the ability to run on electric power alone.

The new Yaris is designed to meet the increasing challenges of everyday urban life, being easy to park, agile in the city yet comfortable on longer journeys. Owners will also expect it to deliver style and practicality, allied to the lowest possible running costs and environmental consideration. These multi-layered requirements are complemented by advances in active and passive safety systems that we believe will make new Yaris the world’s safest compact car.

Details of the UK model range, technical and equipment specifications and prices will be announced in 2020, nearer the on-sale date.

  1. A great looking car but sadly Toyota has become really expensive cars for what they are. Compare them with competitors and your looking at £2k less for similar spec and performance and competitors all do hybrid versions now.

    Not only that but by local dealership said toyota are reluctant to offer great deals on the hybrid models and there are no dealership deposit contributions to loyal customers. There is no brand loyalty.

    Everytime you drive one of these cars your advertising Toyota. From a family who started out with Toyota when the first gen yaris came out you have lost a customer

    1. Hi there,

      Thanks for your message and your support over the years. We’re sorry you feel this way, however our cars come with a 5 year/100000 mile warranty, which competitors like Ford, Volkswagen, Peugeot and Vauxhall don’t offer. In addition to this, our cars come with a comprehensive suite of safety features as standard which are often expensive optional extras on competitor vehicles. Other manufacturers may be starting to offer hybrids now, but we have over 20 years experience behind us which is very important for customers when choosing a technology which is new to them.

      Regarding your comment about offers, we currently have a range of 0% APR finance deals on offer including the Yaris, C-HR and RAV4. You can check these out here:


    1. Hi Mike,

      Thanks for getting in touch and apologies for our delay in getting back to your comment. There isn’t an AWD Yaris available in the UK market.


  2. I like it but it’s disappointing the bodywork steals so much window space at the rear; not good for rear passengers and when reversing. I think the car would’ve looked better continuing the window line straight back to the rear lights, whilst improving visibility and safety.
    The pricing will be crucial too, with so many new supermini class models being launched recently with huge price increases when compared to the models they replace, no wonder a lot less people are buying new cars these days!
    Hopefully Toyota are considering a sports version too. I would’ve considered a current shape Yaris GRMN but couldn’t justify spending over £26,000 on a small car to my wife!
