Pics: 2012 Toyota Yaris Debuts at Lollapalooza
Toyota decided to give a first-look at the 2012 Toyota Yaris at, of all places, the Lollapalooza Music Festival in Chicago today. Here are some photos via a user at YarisWorld.com. Gone is the center gauge cluster, replaced by a traditional set of gauges. Also, it looks like a big head unit, possibly sourced from the Scion line? No official details on the engine yet, but previous info has suggested the 1.5-liter 1NZ-FE may carry over from the Yaris, which carried over from the Scion xB and xA, and Toyota Echo.
UPDATE-9:23am: Pics apparently came from Cars.com. Also, according to this article, the Yaris' fuel economy will go up to 30/35 with the automatic, and 30/38 with the manual—up a couple of ticks from the previous generation. This suggest they are likely using the 1NZ-FE engine again.
