Toyota Yaris Hatchback

2006 Toyota Yaris Hatchback
Toyota Press Release

Toyota YarisToyota has launched Yaris, a new small hatchback with advanced packaging efficiency and breakthrough safety features.

Yaris’ exterior was styled at Toyota’s European Design studio, ED2, in Nice, France.

It is the first Toyota vehicle in Australia with the optional availability of a breakthrough driver's knee airbag and the first Toyota small car in Australia to combine front seat side airbags and full-length side curtain shield airbag availability.

Yaris hatch has all-new exterior and interior styling.

A new, highly rigid body design has boosted passive safety and vehicle durability, while providing a stable platform for the new suspension and reducing interior noise levels.

Design optimises pedestrian safety, ease of repair in the event of a low-speed collision and recyclability.

Twelve hatchback models are offered, with the choice of two body styles, two engines, two transmissions and three equipment grade levels.

Eight models share an improved 1.5-litre VVT-i engine, and four models have an improved 1.3-litre VVT-i engine.

Both engines can be matched to a five-speed manual transmission or an electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission with a gated shift. All Yaris models have fuel-saving electric power-assisted steering, factory-fitted air conditioning, dual SRS airbags, and ABS anti-skid brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).

All models can also offer an optional Enhanced Safety Pack (ESP) that combines front-seat side airbags, side curtain-shield airbags and driver’s seat knee airbags.

Yaris’ ride and handling, interior comfort and interior appointments have the feel of a larger vehicle.

The all-new interior includes MP3-compatible audio units, digital instruments, rotary-dial heater and air conditioning controls, a versatile 60:40 split and fold-flat rear seat and up to 25 storage locations including a driver’s glove box.

The majority of models have telescopic as well as tilt steering column adjustment and audio controls on the steering wheel.
