    New Yaris Hybrid Making Waves This Summer

    Taking something perfect and adding that extra bit of spice can be a difficult proposition but Toyota have achieved the fete with the new Yaris Hybrid. Over £70 million has been invested, 1,000 fresh parts engineered and over  576, 000 man hours consumed to help refine an already successful formula that has seen its popularity remain, becoming the most popular model in Europe.

    Refreshed inside and out, the distinctive cross motif is crafted onto the front grille. Combined with a new LED headlight design and a reshaped bumper, the Yaris continues to aesthetically appeal. The interior sports a 7 inch touchscreen featuring the latest Touch 2 technology, providing one of the most responsive systems within its class.

    Central to the new Yaris Hybrid is the environmentally friendly engine that provides a greener drive, lighter on both carbon emissions and your fuel consumption. Slashing emissions to 75g/km delivered through a powerful 1.5 VVT-I Hybrid engine, keeping it nippy for responsive urban driving (0-30 in around 5 seconds). As with the previous Yaris Hybrid, the combination of a 1.5 litre petrol engine and electric motor has produced an impressive 100bhp, robustly delivered through a solid, re-engineered structure and suspension.

    With the Yaris Hybrid, Toyota have looked to blend performance features to achieve multiple driving goals. Its compact size makes for fantastic manoeuvrability and parking in busy high streets, whilst the high fuel economy (85.6mpg) and top speed mean motorway driving is comfortably negotiated. Heading on holiday for a city break or to the coast? A 286 litre boot is deceptively spacious and will fit all you need to travel comfortably.
