2016 Toyota Yaris Info
The 2016 models are right around the corner, and in Toyota's case, the subcompact Yaris will get a few minor changes. The biggest change will be the availability of Crushed Ice and Barcelona Red with a Black Sand Pearl Roof, as witnessed in the photos above. While these photos are of European-spec Yaris models, we expect to get the same treatment here on this side of the ocean.
Other than the new black-top versions, the French-made Yaris will continue to offer 106 hp and 103 ft/lbs of torque from its 1NZ-FE 1.5-liter DOHC engine. Available transmission choices remain the trusty (read: old) five-speed manual and four-speed automatic. Proven? Yes. Old technology? Ditto.
The car is available in L, LE, and SE trim levels, the latter getting the "sport" treatment with a sport-tuned suspension and steering. You can see our 2015 Toyota Yaris SE review from a few months ago and get our impressions.
And yes, we own a 2007.
