Toyota are adding two new models at the top of the Yaris range – the Toyota Yaris T Spirit and Toyota Yaris SR. On sale January 2011.
The Toyota Yaris isn’t the coolest supermini on the block, but it does have a certain appeal and the benefit of being a proper ‘mini’ car – perfect around town. It even handles quite well, is well-built and has a surprising amount of room inside.
Even with all that going for it Toyota are obviously expecting the New Year to be less than easy on car sales, so they’ve announced a couple of new models at the top of the Yaris range to tempt buyers with extra goodies for just a wee bit extra – or nothing at all.
The ‘nothing at all’ for extras is for the new Toyota Yaris T Spirit. The T Spirit is based on the current range-topping Toyota Yaris TR but gets a new set of alloys, rear parking sensors, chrome round the front fogs and a TomTom SatNav with Bluetooth and USB. All that extra for exactly the same price as the current Yaris TR which starts at £11,695
The Toyota Yaris SR is the new sporty offering and also gets based on the existing TR trim. Here you get a set of 16″ Toyota MotorSport alloys, privacy glass, TomTom SatNav, Climate, a rear roof spoiler and extra chrome. The new Yaris SR comes in at £750 more than the current TR
Good value, whether you choose the T Spirit or the SR. On sale January 2011.
