Building on the extensive updates applied to the Yaris for the 2015 model year, the 2016 Toyota Yaris features a European design highlighted by new details and slight changes throughout the vehicle. Roseville Toyota has the latest details on what the new Yaris has to offer and why we’re so excited for its upcoming arrival.
The most obvious change right off the bat is the two new color combinations being offered to customers: Barcelona Red or Crushed Ice with a Black Sand Pearl roof, both adding to the European element. Once inside the vehicle and on the road, the incredibly quiet ride becomes obvious. An acoustic glass windshield and sound-absorbing and insulating materials placed throughout the car help to silence any distracting or annoying sounds your car or the roads could be making. Further sound insulation materials block outside noise and prevent engine noise from entering the cabin.
The engine is equipped with variable valve timing with intelligence (VVT-i) producing 106 horsepower, but when you’re behind the wheel it seems like even more. Both automatic and manual transmissions are smooth-shifting. The fun can go on for a while because the compact, lightweight design and aerodynamics increase fuel efficiency, meaning less stops at the gas station for you. The instrument gauge has been updated to appear sportier and high-quality materials throughout the interior give it an upgraded feel.
Nine airbags and the standard Star Safety System™ headline the vehicle’s new safety features, along with the Advanced Whiplash Injury-Lessening (WIL) front-seat structure. This unique design ensure your spine is supported completely to reduce whiplash-type injuries in the case of a collision.
