The New Toyota Yaris

In Tokyo, Toyota has unveiled the new Vitz. The name Vitz is the name for the U.S. bound Yaris in Japan. The new version has been completely refreshed. This is the first full redesign of the Vitz/Yaris since 2005.

They styling of the Yaris is more expressive and seems to have a Eurocentric design to it. Although the platform is a carryover, the wheelbase has been increased by 4 inches to provide more interior space. Toyota will be releasing a 1.3 liter engine for Japan, but the U.S. will be getting a 1.5 liter engine that produces 107 horsepower. Inside the Yaris there will be the new Yaris seats and it will keep the same simplistic look. Toyota has also hinted at a hybrid version of the Yaris that will be released in 2012.
