Toyota UK has added two new models to the 2011 Yaris line-up. The new T Spirit and SR models add more luxury and a bigger dose of sports styling. Sales will begin in January 2011, with prices starting from £11,695 for the T Spirit and £12,445 for the SR version.
The T Spirit adds an integrated, detachable TomTom satellite navigation system with touch-screen operation, Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port, eight-spoke alloys, climate control, rear parking sensors, and chrome surrounds for the front foglights.
The SR version gets 16-inch alloys, rear privacy glass, a rear roof spoiler and chrome exhaust finisher. There is also a chrome and leather sports gearshift and chrome front fog light surrounds. The list of features includes satellite navigation package, Bluetooth, USB port and climate control.
The exterior color options for the two models include Cirrus White, Chilli Red, and Crystal Silver.
Press release after the jump.
Moving into a new year, Yaris welcomes two new top-of-the range models to its UK line-up, giving customers the option of a version that’s a touch more luxurious, or one that has a bigger dose of sports styling. Both newcomers are based on the top-selling TR trim and go on sale in January with special launch prices.
An integrated, detachable TomTom satellite navigation system with touch-screen operation tops the check list of equipment features on the new Yaris T Spirit, which brings with it Bluetooth connectivity and a USB port for linking in iPods and other digital music players. In addition to the regular TR specification, the trim includes eight-spoke alloys, climate control, rear parking sensors and chrome surrounds for the front foglights.
Thanks to special 2011 launch prices from £11,695, all these extras are complimentary, resulting in a no cost upgrade from TR to the T Spirit grade. Yaris T Spirit is available in three and five-door bodystyles with the full engine range: 1.0 and 1.33-litre VVT-i petrol and 1.4 D-4D diesel engines. The latter two units are offered with a choice of six-speed manual or Multimode transmission.
Toyota Motorsport 16-inch alloys, rear privacy glass, a rear roof spoiler and chrome exhaust finisher mark the new Yaris SR down as a sportier proposition. That’s not the complete story, though, as the spec’ also includes the satellite navigation package, Bluetooth, USB port and climate control featured on its T Spirit sister model – plus a chrome and leather sports gearshift and chrome front foglight surrounds. Compared like-for-like with Yaris TR, the price premium is a modest £750.
There’s a single engine choice – the 1.33 VVT-I petrol unit, with manual or (on the five-door model) Multimode transmission. Colour choices are Cirrus White, Chilli Red and Crystal Silver.
