6 December 2017 - IndianAutosBlog
Toyota is displaying the 2018 Toyota Yaris at the 2017 Thai Motor Expo. The company had launched the facelifted Yaris in Thailand in September this year.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris features a new fluidic front-end borrowed from the Toyota Yaris ATIV. The facelifted Toyota Yaris gets new swept-back headlamps, a more prominent grille layout, redesigned bumper and fog lamp housing and LED DRLs. At the rear, the redesigned tailgate and bumper, new tailgate applique and the Toyota Corolla-inspired wraparound tail lamps make the Toyota Yaris look more contemporary now.
The 2018 Toyota Yaris (facelift) features a refreshed interior too. Toyota has redesigned the dashboard and the outer-end air vents to go with the fluidic nature of the new model. The centre console and multifunction steering wheel are new too.
Noteworthy features of the 2018 Toyota Yaris include projector headlamps with LED light guides, LED DRLs, 15-inch alloy wheels, tail lamps with LED graphics, keyless entry, push-button start, leather steering wheel and gearshift knob, automatic climate control, parking sensors (rear), VSC, TRC, HAC, and 7 airbags.
The Toyota Yaris employs the 3NR-FE 1.2-litre Dual VVT-i engine across the range. This four-cylinder petrol engine produces 86 PS at 6,000 rpm and 108 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. A continuously variable transmission is standard.
