Toyota Yaris with Parking Assist

Toyota Yaris – Parking Assist

Driving’s great, but parking’s not so much fun. Whether it’s parallel parking on the street or trying to neatly slot into a car park space, none of us get it right all the time. With waiting traffic piling on the pressure, a smooth parking maneouvre quickly descends into an embarrassing shuffle-fest. If only there were an easier way…

In the new Toyota Yaris, there is an easier way – it’s called Parking Assist. We’ll explain a little more below, but for now, let’s see how Ned fares without:

Poor Ned – if only he’d known! Parking Assist is available as part of the Protection Pack that can be optionally specified on Yaris Icon, Sport and Excel models. It supplements the reversing camera function of the Yaris’ Touch 2 infotainment system with front and rear parking sensors.

Combining the two technologies means that the driver gets both audible and visual indicators of what is around the vehicle, making it so much easier to manoeuvre into a parking space without any outside assistance like Ned endured.

And as well as making your life easier when you’re out and about in the new Yaris, Parking Assist plays a valuable role in improving safety and preventing bumps. The parking sensors will detect objects that may be unseen to the driver, so if a child has just dashed behind your car while your concentration was elsewhere, Parking Assist will warn you. And if you’ve ever had a bollard jump in the way of your car, then it’ll catch those too!

Head down to your local Toyota dealer to try out the new Yaris with Parking Assist and you’ll be parking like a pro in no time. For more information on the new Toyota Yaris, head over to the designated section of the Toyota UK website.

    1. Hi Jazz,

      Thanks for getting in touch.

      The Toyota warranty covers issues caused by a manufacturing defect. To find out whether the issue you are experiencing with your car is covered, a Toyota technician will need to inspect your vehicle.

      Please contact your nearest Toyota centre to arrange an appointment. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and hope that your vehicle is working as you expect it to very soon.

    1. Hi Liudmila,
      Thanks for getting in touch.
      Unfortunately your car would not take the system that is in current models. The cut outs for cameras and sensors are not present.
      However, if you go to an independent car parts supplier, they should be able to fit rear view cameras which would display on a separate monitor or sensors.
      We hope this helps.

  6. Hi I have a 2017 Yaris that I use as a Driving Instructor car. The local test centre Manager has complained that the front parking sensors are too loud and can be distracting. Any way I can turn them down?

    1. Hi Peter,
      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately there is no way of turning down the volume of the car sensors. We’d advise putting foam over the speaker when a test is in process. Many thanks.
