As reflected in its consistently strong performance in the European J.D. Power
Customer Satisfaction survey, an ever-increasing number of customers have
come to appreciate the Yaris' ingenious packaging, class-leading passenger room coefficient, comfort and versatility, advanced technology and performance. In total, over 2.2 million units have been sold across Europe since its launch, and the Yaris represents a quarter of Toyota's annual car sales on the continent.
In 2009, Toyota Optimal Drive technology was introduced across the entire engine range. This has significantly lowered both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, with appreciable cost of ownership benefits to customers. All engines - 1.0 litre VVT-i, 1.33 litre Dual VVT-i and 1.4 litre D-4D - now generate 120 g/km or less, with fuel consumption averaging below 5 l/100 km.
Yaris 2010 introduces a new grade into a revised, streamlined model line-up which sees all engine variants available in every grade. Bringing added visual appeal to the heart of the model range, Yaris 2010 features numerous exterior styling updates, a refreshed interior and an upgraded standard equipment specification.
Manufactured at TMMF Valenciennes in France and on sale from January 2010, the new Yaris 2010 will revitalise the core of Toyota's best-selling European model, with overall range sales expected to exceed 200,000 units in 2010.
A choice of three powerplants - 1.0 litre VVT-i and 1.33 litre Dual VVT-i petrol
units and a 1.4 litre D-4D - is now available across the entire Yaris model range. Every engine benefits from the performance - and economy-enhancing benefits of Toyota Optimal Drive and, from July, will comply with Euro V emissions standards. As a result, all three engines generate under 120 g/km, with model range fuel consumption averaging below 5 l/100 km. Moreover, Yaris whole-fleet CO2 emissions will be reduced from 130.8 g/km in 2008, to 117.4 g/km in 2010.
Designed to maximise performance and driving enjoyment while minimising
fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, Toyota Optimal Drive focuses on several
key aspects of powertrain development such as lightweight, compact design,
enhanced combustion efficiency, low friction components and environmentally
Petrol engine combustion efficiency has been improved through the use of a high efficiency intake port, a high compression ratio and long reach spark plugs. The 1.4 litre D-4D benefits from the adoption of a lower compression ratio, optimised combustion chamber dimensions, enhanced Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) cooler efficiency and a stainless steel exhaust manifold with an optional, closecoupled Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF).
Environmental technologies are represented by the application of Dual VVT-i
and Stop & Start technology to the 1.33 litre Dual VVT-i petrol unit, while the
1.4 litre D-4D engine is equipped with next generation Piezo injectors, variable
nozzle turbocharging, a de-coupling generator and new, electrical Exhaust Gas Recirculation.
