2015 Toyota Yaris Facelift — Changes & Improvements
The 2015 Toyota Yaris is quite a surprise. After the manufacturer revealed updates in December last year, the 2015 Toyota Yaris comes with facelift changes which improved the appearance, brought better performance and eliminated three-door version. This subcompact hatchback is created using the Aygo’s design language. According to the exterior changes, the 2015 Toyota Yaris interior got a redesign, which provides more room and comfort. There were no changes of the engine lineup, so the current powertrains will be kept, as well as the hybrid powertrain. We don’t expect drastically improved performance, but according to various sources, the new Yaris has better handling, which is good to hear, since this car is mostly driven on the busy city streets. As for the release, the 2015 Yaris will be available this September.
2015 Toyota Yaris Exterior Refresh
The facelift this hatchback had is inspired by the exterior of the Toyota Aygo. Its front fascia resembles the Aygo’s face because of the lower grille whose trapezoidal shape forms the recognizable X shape with the upper grille. The 2015 Toyota Yaris has LED daytime running lights located withing the headlights cluster, while the Aygo has those next to the fog lights. Thanks to the redesigned front bumper, the facelifted Yaris looks more sporty and powerful. Although it’s very easy for a subcompact to get a completely unsuitable face, this hatchback looks just fine. Its appearance is powerful, but also smart and handsome. The 2015 Toyota Yaris has improved rear fascia with redesigned taillights. Also, we expect to see new wheels, which will be complementary to the overall fresh appearance. The three-door body is dropped, because the contemporary market demands more comfort and space, so a three-door hatchback doesn’t stand a chance competing against a five-door version.
2015 Toyota Yaris Interior Improvements
The interior of the 2015 Toyota Yaris is improved in order to provide more space and comfort, as we said earlier. Thanks to the improved suspension, time spent in the cabin of this car will be more pleasant, because those changes reduced the noise level. The latest generation of the Toyota Link infotainment system is expected to bring more high-end feel, since the display will be larger. The 2015 Toyota Yaris RS will get a new bolder steering wheel, which can ignite every driver’s sport passion.
2015 Toyota Yaris Engine Options
As we already mentioned, the 2015 Toyota Yaris will come with the same engine options. There are a 1.0-liter and a 1.33-liter gasoline engines, as well as a 1.4-liter D-4D diesel engine. It’s not known whether they increased power output of the engines. As for the 2015 Yaris Hybrid, we know that this powertrain will be offered, but at this point it’s impossible to say whether they improved it or not. The improved suspension will provide better, more precise handling.
2015 Toyota Yaris Release Date
The 2015 Toyota Yaris will be available in September this year.
