European Design Takes On America in Toyota Yaris

Posted Thursday, Sep 24, 2015 by nhtwpprod

The 2015 Toyota Yaris is a vehicle that had major updates before introduction. The new 2016 Yaris continues to offer the distinctive European design that consumers have loved and appreciated this year. You won’t see this nifty ride at Los Angeles Toyota dealers just yet, but it is definitely on the way.

More than Looks
The Euro look of the Yaris is quite authentic. This vehicle was created in Toyota’s ED2 design studio located in the South of France. Because European cities are known for their narrow streets, the Yaris is designed with a low windshield angle, short overhangs, and cornered wheels. It looks like it is about to pounce on the road. The fanciful and sporty horizontal chrome grille trim and large grille opening give the front end a whole new look. Along with the new shape and style is an attitude of customer pleasing. The 2016 Yaris is available in 3 or 5 door body styles and has more room than previous models.

Affordable Luxuries
Thanks to the rigid body structure and sporty suspension, the Yaris is agile and smooth. The acoustic glass windshield, sound absorbing and sound insulating materials, and wind-cheating aerodynamics provide a silent ride that everyone will appreciate. A super smooth hydraulic clutch and five-speed manual transmission is standard with 30/36/32 combined mpg, making it very affordable to drive. The handling and responsiveness of this vehicle will make you think you are in a much more expensive luxury vehicle. The Yaris is a perfect combination of frugal and fun!

Sleek Inside and Out
There are many details inside the Yaris that drivers and passengers will love. From dual extendable sun visors with vanity mirrors to soft-touch trim for the instrument panels, the details are what make this car so different from the previous model. There are lots of convenient storage spaces and comfort measures added to the 2016 Yaris. Look for standard AC, sport tuned electric power steering, power windows and locks, and color keyed folding outside mirrors.

Safety Features Are Tops!
This may be a small vehicle, but the 2016 Yaris is jam-packed with safety features. An impact absorbing structure is just the beginning. You’ll also find:

  • Driver and front-passenger dual-stage airbags
  • Front seat side airbags
  • Front seat cushion airbags
  • Side curtain shield airbags
  • Driver’s knee airbag
  • Vehicle Stability Control
  • Traction Control
  • Anti-Lock Brakes
  • Brake Assist
  • Smart Stop Technology

Toyota is known for its dedication to safety for both drivers and passengers, and shows no signs of letting that commitment slip. The 2016 Yaris also comes with a 36-month/36,000 mile basic new car warranty, Toyota Care, and power train warranty.

Check with your Los Angeles Toyota dealer to find out when you can expect to see the sporty European style 2016 Yaris on their lot. Once you see this new creation, you will want to give it a test drive. Don’t be surprised if the European style moves into your American driveway!
