Toyota Yaris Hybrid Gains Active And Sport Versions In The UK

Toyota UK added two new versions of its smallest hybrid on offer, the Yaris Hybrid.

The new Toyota Yaris Hybrid Active becomes the entry-level model of the range and comes equipped with dual-zone climate control, split-folding rear seats and trip computer among others. Price is set at £14,995 for the frugal Toyota which returns a combined 85.6 mpg UK (3.3lt/100km – 71.2 mpg US) and 75g/km of CO2 emissions which makes it a road tax-free model.

The Sport version features rear privacy glass, bigger 16in wheels, rear spoiler among others while the cabin benefits from Toyota’s Touch 2 multimedia system with rear view camera. Toyota offers a panoramic sunroof as a £550 option. The larger wheels slightly increase the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions (78.5mpg UK – 82g/km CO2) with the Yaris Hybrid remaining though eligible for zero road tax.

Power comes from the combination of a 73hp 1.5-litre petrol engine and a 59hp electric motor which gives a total output of 98hp. The power goes through a CVT unit as usual, with the Yaris Hybrid scoring 11.8 seconds for the 0-62mph and a 103mph top speed.
