The 2020 Toyota Yaris will be bigger in terms of size as compared to the outgoing model.
Recently, reports released the spy shots of new 2020 Toyota Yaris ahead of its Tokyo Motor Show debut. Now, officially, Toyota has revealed its JDM-spec and European-bound Yaris for the enthusiasts. The all-new hatchback is based on the TNGA platform and boasts a range of cosmetic changes and features updates.
The 2020 Toyota Yaris will be displayed on the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show.
Being the first subcompact Toyota car to get TNGA architecture through the modular GA-B platform, the 2020 Toyota Yaris holds a special place in the company’s product portfolio and has leveraged the engineers to put much effort on the exterior, interior, feature, mechanical and safety front. The fourth-gen Yaris will be 5 mm shorter in terms of length and 40 mm shorter in its height as compared to the outgoing model. Width and wheelbase, however, will grow by 50 mm. Though the new Yaris gets bigger proportions, it comes with a reduction of 50 kg in the kerb weight.
The fourth-gen Yaris sports revolutionary changes on the outside and is based on the modular GA-B platform.
The car sports major changes on its exterior profile with large angular blacked-out front grille, newly-designed fog lamp housing, and sleeker headlamps along with integrated LED daytime running lamps. The pillars, wing mirrors and roof are blacked out as well while the new bonnet, bigger and new wheels are the one that further enhances the sporty appeal of the model.
The rear end of the new-gen Yaris features a set of boomerang-shaped LED taillights, rear spoiler, roof-mounted shark-fin antenna, and one-piece trunk lid.
The new Yaris will feature a premium interior that boasts many convenience and comfort-oriented features.
The 2020 Toyota Yaris now has increased ample cabin space. The high-quality material touches, combined with the soft-touch panels, emphasize the upmarket feel inside the vehicle. The centre console and dashboard layout are all-new with the lesser use of physical buttons. The interior features list consists of 10-inch coloured heads-up display, heated steering, wireless charging, ambient lighting, TFT multi-information display, a large floating touchscreen infotainment system among others.
The all-new subcompact hatchback will be powered by a number of powertrain options. It includes a 1.5-litre "Dynamic Force" petrol engine combined with a 79 HP electric motor and a lithium-ion battery. It can deliver a combined power of 113 HP and claims to release less CO2 emission by 20%. Other powertrain options include regular 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre petrol units.
