TORONTO, ON – December 14, 2018 – Conquer the city in the Yaris Hatchback – the agile, urban-savvy subcompact that delivers style, versatility and driving fun way bigger than its modest footprint.
“Canadians love the efficiency and easy-to-drive nature of small cars – and the Yaris Hatchback adds in a big dose of design, versatility and fun,” said Cyril Dimitris, Vice President, Toyota Canada Inc. “With the Yaris Hatchback’s style, features and responsive handling, city errands and commutes become welcome adventures.”
Nimble and spirited, the Yaris Hatchback is designed for life on the go – and expresses its mission with European styling. Choose from three-door or five-door models, and enjoy the cargo-carrying versatility of a rear hatch plus 60/40 split folding rear seats. The Yaris Hatchback features room for five adults with many welcome amenities – such as heated front seats, power windows and doors, and plenty of thoughtful storage spaces throughout the cabin.
The driver-focussed instrumentation features a multi-information display to place all critical information within easy view. Other technology features include a 6.1-inch Display Audio system with USB audio inputs, Bluetooth® connectivity, and steering wheel-mounted controls.
Under the hood, every Yaris Hatchback is built around a snappy yet efficient 1.5 L four-cylinder engine with weight-reducing aluminum alloy block and engine management technologies including variable valve timing with intelligence and sequential multiport electronic fuel injection. This powers the front wheels through a choice of two transmissions: a five-speed manual or four-speed super electronically controlled automatic with overdrive and the added bonus of an ECO Indicator. Meantime, the combination of electric power steering, well-tuned suspension and impressively tight turning radius makes the Yaris Hatchback fun to drive, even in congested urban environments. Front ventilated disc brakes and rear drums provide ample stopping power.
The Toyota Yaris Hatchback also features an impressive bundle of standard safety technologies – headlined by Toyota Safety Sense C. Featuring three advanced active safety systems – Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert and Automatic High Beams – TSS C augments driver awareness, supports driver decision-making, and enhances driver peace of mind. Other safety features standard on all models include the Toyota Star Safety System, nine airbags and a back-up camera.
