The 2019 Toyota Yaris is Toyota’s least expensive model, but it doesn’t stand out in any particular category. Originally designed to excel on the tight streets and crowded cities in France and Germany, it prioritizes maneuverability and efficiency above all else. That doesn’t mean it’s a no-frills car, however, as it comes with plenty of modern features that make it a solid competitor in the entry level class.
2019 Toyota Yaris Exterior and Interior Design
The Yaris design, now in its fourth year, is tall yet nicely proportioned from the side, and comes in either three or five door versions. Its sleek styling has all the right curves, and available projector beam headlights and an oversize blacked out grille add attitude. Available LED Daytime Running Lights feature an accent light bar for added eye catching style. And with its spoiler, integrated fog lights and 16 in. machined finish alloy wheels, Yaris SE is always ready to show off its sporty side. So get inside. Let’s go for a ride.
Interior of the 2019 Toyota Yaris will be leveled with its lower price. Its surfaces will be more soft touch giving more premium feel to its owners. This size vehicles usually suffer from lack of leg and head room on rear seats. The new Yaris won’t be exception either but it will offer decent cargo space behind the folding rear seats. All Yaris models come standard with Toyota’s Entune digital interface, which includes a 6.1 inch touchscreen, HD radio, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a USB connection. It also packs nine standard airbags into the Yaris’ cabin along with other typical safety features like traction and stability control.
2019 Toyota Yaris Release Date and Price
The launch from the 2019 Toyota Yaris is anticipated to be at the Auto Show during 2018. Prices have not been announced, but we expect the Toyota Yaris hatchback starts off at $14,895. But if it’s up your alley, expect pricing information closer to the 2019 Yaris’s launch next year.
2019 Toyota Yaris Engine Specs and Performance
But what could be a good package is greatly let down by mediocre powertrains. The 2019 Toyota Yaris will be available with same engine that propels current model of Toyota Yaris. It is 1.5 liter 4 inline engine with VVt-i and puts out a meager 106 horsepower, low for the class, and a five-speed manual transmission provides performance that’s tepid at best, though it can be perky at city speeds if you work it hard. The four speed automatic option is far worse and one of the few such units left in any small car. Ratios are widely spaced, downshifts are loud and dramatic, and the fuel economy is below the class average for either version. Whatever gearbox you choose fuel economy will be almost the same, 33 mpg and 32 mpg for 2019 Toyota Yaris.
