Two New Toyota Yaris Hybrids Added to the Range

Two new models have joined the Yaris Hybrid line-up with the addition of Active and Sport trimmed versions.

Active becomes the new entry level option and comes equipped with dual-zone climate control, trip computer, power front windows and split-folding rear seats. Also as standard is the quiet and refined Toyota hybrid experience together with 75g/km COemissions and official combined cycle fuel economy of 85.6mpg. The low emissions mean no annual road tax (VED) to pay and, for London drivers, exemption from the congestion charge.

The Sport cuts a sharper dash with rear privacy glass, 16-inch alloy wheels, rear spoiler and a rear pillar treatment that creates a faux floating roof effect. Other key features include climate control, power windows all round and the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with DAB radio, Bluetooth, touchscreen control and rear view camera. An optional Skyview panoramic roof can also be specified (£550).

Using the larger alloy wheel brings a modest change in the benchmark figures to 82g/km and 78.5mpg but Yaris Hybrid Sport retains the benefit of zero road tax.

The new Yaris Hybrid Active is launched with an on-the-road price tag of £14,995, including a special £300 introductory customer saving. Yaris Hybrid Sport is priced at £16,695. Both are available via PCP deals and the Yaris Hybrid Sport can be obtained with £900 finance deposit allowance and nought percent APR representative*.
