(TORONTO) – New class leading safety features highlight the 2011 Toyota Yaris Sedan, injecting even more value into the subcompact that packs inspired styling, versatility and handling into an amazingly efficient package.
 
“The Toyota Yaris is fun and agile – perfect for negotiating any urban streetscape – yet comfortable and refined for highway driving too,” said Warren Orton, Director at Toyota Canada Inc. “The Yaris has room for five plus trunk space, excellent fuel efficiency, and styling – features not commonly found in the subcompact segment, making it the small car that’s big on value.”
 
Highlights for 2011
  • Standard Vehicle Stability Control and Traction Control with Anti Lock Brakes
  • Standard brake assist
  • New 15-inch wheel cover design
