4.12.2013Toyota revises Yaris range for 2014
The new 2014 Toyota Yaris and Yaris Hybrid go on sale today, with new grade line-ups and improved efficiency with lower CO2 emissions.
There is an added incentive for the 1.4 D-4D diesel Yaris, which now dips below the 100g/km CO2 threshold to qualify for a zero annual road tax bill.
The on-going cost of car ownership is a significant consideration for customers so Toyota has made the 1.4 D-4D diesel-powered Yaris cheaper to run. Engineering revisions have improved the unit's efficiency and brought its official CO2 emissions figure down from 104g/km to 99g/km.
As a result, the 2014 Yaris 1.4 D-4D Icon Plus model is in Band A for road tax, with no annual charge. Less money will be spent on filling up as well, as combined cycle economy has improved from 72.4mpg to 74.3mpg.
The 2014 Yaris, both conventional and hybrid, adopts a new four-grade structure for 2014: Active, Icon, Icon Plus and Trend. Active and Icon replace the previous T2 and TR designations, while Icon Plus offers a high-value specification and extra styling elements. Trend gains additional equipment features and becomes the new top-of-the-range model.
