TOYOTA MOTOR Philippines (TMP) closes 2020 by revealing the 2021 update to the Yaris hatchback. “It’s been a jam-packed year for Toyota this 2020,” said TMP Vice-President of Marketing Services Elijah Marcial in a release. “But we’ve got one last exciting model this year that we’re sure many Filipinos will enjoy.”

Ms. Marcial added that the Yaris appeals to “many married professionals in their mid to late 30s looking for a modern fun-to-drive vehicle that offers the great cargo space a hatchback offers.”

A longtime nameplate, the Yaris, continued the executive, “has amassed quite a loyal fan base for being synonymous with fun driving and flashy looks, and this year we’ve elevated it with a new premium eye-catching design to suit our customers’ evolving style. All without, of course, compromising on the power, convenience, and safety we’ve all come to expect from every Toyota.”

The Toyota Yaris sports a new front grille, flanked by new LED fog lamps across all variants. The 1.5 S CVT variant’s headlamps are LEDs complemented by new daytime running lights (DRL). All trims get new 15-inch two-tone machine-finish alloy wheels. The updates extend up to the interiors with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, now a standard feature across all variants, and synthetic leather seats for the 1.5 S CVT variant. A new exterior color, Cyan Metallic, also makes its debut.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto now comes standard. Customers who opt for the 1.5 S CVT variant get smart entry and a push start system. The variant also comes with new synthetic leather seats and boasts a six-speaker system.

Toyota dealerships are now accepting reservations, with retail sales in the 70-strong network starting on Jan. 13, 2021. Check out the Yaris’ full specs and product highlights, plus calculate payments, and submit inquiries direct to any preferred dealer via https://toyota.com.ph/yaris.
