The Toyota Yaris and Yaris Hybrid get an update for 2014

Toyota is upgrading its Yaris range for 2014. The new update includes changing the current T2 and TR trims to Active, Icon, Icon Plus and Trend. The range starter Active trim is equipped with a six-speaker audio system, USB and auxiliary audio connections, stability, traction control and electric windows. Icon trim adds 15-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, rear-view camera and Toyota’s touch multimedia system.

If you opt for Icon Plus you get front fog lights, dual-zone climate control, cruise control and automatic wipers. However, in the top of the range Trend specification you get 16-inch alloy wheels, chrome detailing around the door mirrors, leather handbrake and steering wheel trim and rear privacy glass. The changes are not limited to just the specs; Toyota has also revised its Yaris 1.4 litre D-4D diesel engine by cutting down the emissions to 99g/km that puts the Yaris in Band A for road tax with improved economy of 74.3mpg up from 72.4mpg.

The all new Toyota Yaris has number of option packs to choose from, a Smart Pack encompassing keyless entry and push-button starts for £300, and a Protection Pack adding front and rear parking sensors, floor mats, mud flaps and black side mouldings for £700. Icon Plus and Trend trims can also be upgraded with Toyota’s multimedia interface featuring Google search along with satellite navigation, for £650.

The Yaris Hybrid also embraces the new specification structure, doing away with current T3 and T4 trim levels. Prices for the MY2014 Yaris start at £10,895 for a 1.0-litre VVT-i in Active trim, rising to £15,995 for a 1.3-litre VVT-i in top-spec Trend trim. Prices for the MY2014 Yaris Hybrid.
