The new 2014 Toyota Yaris and Yaris Hybrid go on sale today, with new grade line-ups that prioritise the features today’s customers value most. There is an added incentive for the 1.4 D-4D diesel Yaris, which now dips below the 100g/km CO2threshold to qualify for a zero annual road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty) bill.

2014 Yaris

Yaris adopts a new four-grade structure for 2014: Active, Icon, Icon Plus and Trend. Active and Icon replace the previous T2 and TR designations, while Icon Plus offers a high-value specification and extra styling elements. Trend gains additional equipment features and becomes  the new top-of-the-range model.

Icon Plus distinguishes itself with its dedicated Selena 10-spoke, 15-inch alloy wheels, LED rear light clusters and front fog lights. Customers who choose the new Glacier Pearl paint finish also gain a bright chrome tailgate trim. High quality equipment features for safer, easier and more comfortable driving include automatic headlights and windscreen wipers, power windows front and rear, automatic climate control and, where a manual transmission is fitted, a higher-set centre console design.

These are the key features across the new range: –

Six-speaker audio system 15-inch alloy wheels Selena 15-inch alloy wheels 16-inch machined-face alloy wheels
Aux-in and USB connection Body-coloured, electric, heated door mirrors Front fog lights Exterior chrome trim details
Audio controls on steering wheel Body-coloured doorhandles Rain-sensing wipers Chrome-finished door mirrors

1.4 D-4D engine

The on-going cost of car ownership is a significant consideration for customers and Toyota has taken steps to make its 1.4 D-4D diesel-powered Yaris even more wallet-friendly. Engineering revisions have improved the unit’s efficiency and brought its official CO2emissions figure down from 104g/km to 99g/km.

As a result, the 2014 Yaris 1.4 D-4D Icon Plus model is in Band A for road tax (Vehicle Excise Duty), with no annual charge. Less money will be spent on filling up as well, as combined cycle economy has improved from 72.4mpg to 74.3mpg.

Option packs

It’s simple for owners to upgrade the appearance and equipment specification of their new Yaris with cost-effective option packs for the Icon Plus and Trend models.

Smart Pack (£300) makes life easier with keyless entry and push-button start, while the Appearance Pack (£750, Icon Plus only) adds a matt black C-pillar decal to create a “floating roof” effect, plus dark-tinted rear privacy glass and a fixed panoramic roof.

The Protection Pack (£700) covers all bases to guard against the rough and tumble of driving in town and country, providing front and rear parking sensors, floor mats, mud flaps, black side mouldings and boot liner and a rear bumper protection plate.

Stand-out features are bundled together in the Style Pack (£500), including LED daytime running lights, aluminium scuff plates and chrome trim on the tailgate and exhaust pipe.

In addition, Icon, Icon Plus and Trend versions of the 2014 Yaris can be upgraded with Toyota’s Touch & Go multimedia system (£650), providing satellite navigation, Google Local Search connection and access to a range of useful, downloadable applications.

Other styling elements include a rear spoiler, 16-inchTrend alloys and part-leather seat upholstery, while the equipment manifest includes auto headlights and wipers, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, power windows all-round and keyless entry with push-button start.
