Japanese carmaker Toyota has revealed the first images of the facelifted Yaris hatchback ahead of its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The Yaris along with Vios sedan are expected to launch in India in the coming years.
The new Yaris has undergone a huge change in terms of design and the facelifted car looks a lot sportier and lower than the car it replaces.
The front end is a lot sharper thanks to the aggressive new headlamps which team up well with the simplified nose and new grille.
At the rear, there are new wraparound horizontal taillights (full LED units are expected to be an option) along with a new tailgate. The rear bumper has also undergone a revision. Owners will now be able to specify three new alloy options as well as two new exterior colours.
Inside, the 2017 Yaris hatchback features a revised instrument binnacle with a 4.2-inch colour display sitting between the dials. The interiors also feature new propeller style air vents along with new colour, upholstery and trim options and new look switchgear.
Powering the new Yaris is a 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that will replace the 1.33-litre engine found on the current car. The new 1.5-litre engine produces 110bhp and 136Nm of torque and is mated to a CVT automatic gearbox. The 1.5-litre Toyota Yaris will sprint from 0-100km/h in 11 seconds.
A hybrid powerplant along with a 1.0-litre engine will also be on offer when the car goes on sale in Europe after the Geneva Motor Show in March.
While the Yaris is still a while away from stepping onto Indian shores, there is one Toyota that has been ruling the roost in India. So, click on the photo gallery below to view the latest images of the Toyota Innova Crysta.
