2012 Yaris: More Style and Greater Efficiency

Source: Toyota | Published: Wed Jul 13, 2011

(continued from above)

Positioned at the heart of the small car market, 2012 Toyota Yaris will appeal both to technology-focused customers and those motorists for whom quality, practicality and value for money are the key considerations when choosing a new car.

The Toyota Touch audio system, including touchscreen controls, is fitted as standard to all but the entry level Yaris, additionally providing Bluetooth, a USB port and a rear parking camera. This can be upgraded to the Toyota Touch and Go system which provides full map satellite navigation and access to a range of connected information services that can be accessed and downloaded via a dedicated Toyota customer portal.

Exterior Design of 2012 Yaris

Since the first Yaris was launched in 1999, each successive generation of the car has been developed according to the same concept: "compact outside, yet roomy inside. 2012 Toyota Yaris inherits the fundamental clever packaging of the first two generations of the car, but clothed in exterior styling that is bolder, sharper and more eye-catching.

The car's overall length is 153 inches (3,885 mm), just 3.9 inches (100 mm) longer than the previous Yaris, which means new Yaris remains one of the most compact models in its class. This is reflected in a class-leading turning circle, which makes for agile performance in city driving.

The overall width remains unchanged at 66.7 inches (1,695 mm), while the height has been reduced by an inch (20 mm) to 59.4 inches (1,510 mm), giving the car a lower center of gravity and a sportier stance. The wheelbase has been extended by 2 inches (50 mm), and the short front and rear overhangs and prominent wheel arches further emphasize the car's agility.

Central to the new styling is a change in the proportions of the upper and lower grilles, with the latter rendered larger than before.

The full-width, concave upper grille is flanked by new, horizontal headlights, which have a slim design that incorporates dual lamps and, on some grades, smoke-finished 'eyebrow' plates. These emphasize the bolder, horizontal lines of the new car's styling.

In profile, 2012 Toyota Yaris's dynamic qualities are expressed in a more prominent, steeply sloping beltline, while the base of the A-pillar has been moved forwards to strengthen the 'cab-forward' look. The increase in the rake of the windscreen helps improve the car's drag coefficient to a class-leading Cd 0.287.

New 15 and 16-inch alloy wheel designs are available for 2012 Toyota Yaris, and there is a choice of 10 exterior colors. Five shades are new to the range and two - Deep Aqua and Burning Red - are completely new.

At the rear the detailing of the lamp clusters, the top-hinged tailgate inset into the bumper and the treatment of the lower bumper are all visually interlinked, again maintaining Yaris's trademark 'Y' pattern graphic. Setting the number plate higher beneath a chrome bar trim adds a premium touch to the design execution.
