Toyota Yaris

Previous Vehicle Next Vehicle

Toyota is showing its redesigned three- and five-door Yaris subcompacts at Frankfurt--which is actually news for America, because the three-door and a sedan will go on sale in the U.S. next spring as 2007 models, replacing the goofy Echo. The U.S. version of the Yaris is powered by a 106-hp 1.5-liter in-line four-cylinder engine that makes 103 lb-ft of torque and is mated to either a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic. The Yaris has an independent MacPherson strut front suspension and a rudimentary torsion beam rear end. The Yaris's base price will be low because features such as ABS, front side and side curtain air bags, and power windows and locks will be optional.
