Scrappage scheme - this is the mating call, which followed the small-car customers in droves in the car dealerships.
"Do not worry," soothed André Schmidt, head of marketing at Toyota Germany, "despite the great demand we have from the new Yaris have enough in stock."

The current Toyota small car you can see the facelift only at second glance to: tweaking the front and rear bumpers, new grille structure and LED brake lights - that's it basically. What is certainly not see is the fine tuning of the engines - the 1.0-liter (69 PS) on the 1.33-liter (101 hp) to the 1.4 D-4D diesel (90 hp) - now clearly consume less, so no Toyota Yaris more than 120 grams of CO2 per km discharges.

Rest at traffic lights
newly completely is the 1.33-liter four-cylinder with 101 hp. Start-stop system, battery charge in the overrun and braking phases, single variable valve timing and the outlet (Dual VVT-i) and the use of exhaust heat for rapid heating of the cooling water increase the efficiency of this engine, the per 5.1 liters of Super to get along 100 km.

The start-stop system works smoothly. Given sufficient operating temperature and a sufficient state of charge of the battery, the motor stops at a standstill as soon as the idling is inserted. When stepping on the clutch, the starter restarts the engine without much shaking again.

Despite the relatively high torque of 132 Nm at 3800 tours requires the Toyota Yaris 1:33 Dual VVT-i by high speeds and a lot of work done on precisely guided six-speed lever when it should precede the 101 PS according afloat. Here, however, the four-cylinder is always cultivated. Good news: The Yaris prices remained stable, the 1:33, there are over 14 330 euros.
