New Toyota Yaris Trend

We are kicking 2013 off in style, launching a brand new version of the popular Toyota Yaris Trend.

The new Yaris Trend will build on the successful launch of the 2012 Trend, which proved a hit with younger, design-conscious drivers.

Priced at £14,570, the Trend retains a blacked-out C-pillar to create a ‘floating roof’ effect, and adds detailing to the front fog light surrounds and headlamps, door mirror covers and door sills.

The 16-inch alloy wheels have machine-finished surfaces, and a unique two-tone design. At the rear there is a roof spoiler and LED lamp clusters.

There are plenty of updates to the interior, too. The Yaris Trend gets a black and white treatment, with a contrasting touch of ochre to create a clean style with plenty of visual impact.

The layout of the centre console has been changed, with the soft-touch dashboard and upper door panels finished in white. Details such as the shorter shift lever and larger gear knob add to the quality feel.

The black and white design theme continues on the seats. The upper seatback bolsters and headrests are finished in a new, pearl white leather-look material with ochre stitching. The seats’ central fabric inserts have been made softer and there is new grey piping to reflect the change from black to grey seatbelts.

The instrument dials follow the same colour theme, in black and white with ochre accents.

The 2013 Yaris Trend will be available in five-door form only, in Pure White, Tyrol Silver, Burning Red and Decuma Grey. It is powered by the best-selling 1.33-litre petrol engine matched to either a 6-speed manual or Multidrive S automatic transmission.

  1. Hi, just wondering why the BED banding is D for the trend (2013) when compared to other Yaris’ which have C. Thanks Aaron

    1. Hi Aaron,
      Thanks for your post. We can advise that the Yaris 1.33 engine is in bracket D and the Yaris 1 litre engine is in bracket C. This is due to the larger the engine producing higher CO2 emissions than the smaller engine. We would suggest referring to the following Government site so you can check by your specific model: Hope this helps and if you have any more queries please let us know. Many thanks.

    1. Hello Shahid,
      Thank you for your post. Yaris Trend was a special edition for 2012 and 2013. 2016 Yaris offers the new Yaris Design with a sportier feel. Many thanks.

  2. Hi,
    I just bought a yaris trend in burning red and so far very impressed with it. The look and drive of this car is fantastic. Reasonably roomy as well (I am 6’2″). I wanted a city car which is economical to run and hoping that Yaris would live it to its specs.

    My question is whether the trend has daytime running lights or not as I am unable to find its switch. I thought drl is a requirement for all vehicles after 2012 but the trend dont seem to have them.

    1. Hi Wasif
      Thanks for your post and great to hear about your recent purchase of a Yaris Trend.
      The Yaris certainly proves to be a popular car among owners for the reasons you have outlined. With regard to daytime running lights, not all versions of the Yaris Trend had these fitted. There is no interior switch for turning these on and off as if the car has them fitted they will come on automatically when you start the car. Based on your comment we would assume that these are not present on your car. Let us know if you have any other questions. You can also double check the specification with your supplying dealer if this helps.

      1. In my yaris trend, to find out the touch and go version, there’s no option for system information in the setup > general > general settings screen. Any ideas???

    1. Hi Alec
      Thanks for post.
      We recommend contacting your supplying Dealer regarding the invoice amount. They will be able to discuss and break down the invoice cost for you. If you have any problems or would like any further assistance please let us know.

  3. Message for Jackie, The bleeping noise is telling you that there are speed cameras and the AP&H cameras. It took us a while to realise what it was and it only bleeps when the camera is active with a beep beep. Our garage didn’t know this either. Interestingly I was driving along the motorway and the underneath cover of the engine fell off and the front bumper split. I’ve had to pay for this to be repaired even though I hadn’t hit anything or gone over any rubbish in the road at a cost of £900. I’d get them to check the plastic cover, RAC said that the clips had snapped.

  4. Hey.. I am wondering..
    Does the Trend come with a flip-key, or is it a standard blade key?
    If it is just a blade key.. is it possible change it to a flip key?

    1. Hi Jamie,
      The Yaris Trend comes with a blade key. We’re unaware that you’re able to change this to a flip-key, however it may be worth asking your Toyota Dealer.
      Hope this helps.

  5. I ordered My Yaris Trend on the 31/05, like Jamie says below having to come from the factory. I have been given a date of the 1st July to collect. Been away from Japanese cars for a couple of years, cant wait to get back.

  6. I ordered my Trend, in Pure White on the 26/05. The dealership says it has to be shipped from the factory. I cant wait any longer lol! any idea how long it should actually take to arrive?

    1. Hi Jamie,
      Great to hear you’ve a Yaris Trend on the way, you’re going to love it! We can’t say how long it’ll take and suggest you keep in touch with your Dealer who’ll be kept up to date.
      Do let us know if you need anything, enjoy the rest of your week.

  7. I’ve just ordered my Trend in white and an automatic I can’t wait for next week!! It looks stunning and sporty

  8. Picking up my Trend tomorrow, I can not wait. Got the touch and Go pack and the Protection Plus … e-cvt gearbox… I just can not wait till tomorrow!

  9. I bought mine on the 8th and picking up on 14/05/13. Longest week ever and cant wait to drive it. I cant count the number of times I have been on the website just to look at it lol!! I had a Chrysler neon 2000 and boy am I glad to change to Toyota!

  10. Just took mine back to garage. Its making a rubbing noise which sounds like its coming from underneath and it keep making a bleeping sound. They have just rung and said the cant hear any noises!

    1. Hi Jackie,
      May we recommend you speak directly with the Service Manager or the Centre Principle, who’ll be able to look into this further. Please make clear what your concerns are and they’ll make sure that all’s well with your Yaris.
      Please do let us know if we can be of assistance on the blog.
      Many thanks.

  11. I just wanted to know if the Trend only comes with white interior? As I would much prefer an all black look.
    Please let me know, Thank you.

    1. Hi Grant,

      The Yaris Trend has one interior design featuring some white elements to coincide with its unique styling. These include a pearl white trim on doors and instrument panel, a centre console design with white finish, white speedometer with chrome detailing and an exclusive Trend seat trim with white inserts.
      You can find out more about this new model and further imagery through the brochure here:
      We hope this helps and thanks again for your interest.

  12. I have just today ordered my 2013 Yaris Trend. Was very impressed on the test drive and looks really smart and that is me coming from a 3 series. Bought my wife an Aygo 9 months ago and have been SO impressed with the car and with it the local Toyota dealership that I didn’t see the need to look anywhere else when thinking of a new car.

    So far it has been a pleasureable buying experience and I can’t wait to take delivery next week of my white Trend.

  13. Just placed my order for the trend 2. Picking it up on the 22/03/13. It’s gonna be the longest week of my life.. Carnt wait!
