toyota vitz 2011 intrior best cars

Leaked brochure images of the 2011 Toyota Yaris have surfaced on the web. We reported that the forthcoming Yaris will underpin the iQ city-car platform, but this is isn't yet official. The Yaris will make extensive use of the outgoing Yaris bodywork, so it will be a mild refresh instead of an all-new model. Like other cars in its class, the Yaris will grow by 100mm, its wheelbase by 50mm and its overall height will be reduced by 20mm.

While details are limited, the Yaris will feature an aggressive front bumper, Camry-inspired grille and the iQ’s exterior design. A sporty body kit will be available for the Japanese domestic market (JDM), but it remains unclear whether it’ll be offered globally.

In 2012, an 80mpg+ Yaris hybrid will reach European showrooms. The hybrid is set to emit under 80g/km of CO2. It’s doubtful that the Yaris/Vitz will use the 1.8 VVT-i petrol engine from the Prius and Auris, but Toyota does have a 1.33 and 1.0 VVT-i petrol units at hand. The 1.4 D4-D diesel engine is likely to remain, with both manual and automatic transmissions available. This will be tuned to offer better performance, fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions.

In Europe, the impending Yaris is set to debut in concept form at next year’s Geneva motor show, however, sources claim the Yaris (Vitz in Japan) will be on sale during Spring in Japan. While the U.S is unlikely to receive the hybrid model, the U.S Yaris will move up in size. Toyota Europe has been intensely opposing Toyota North America’s decision to move the car into the C-segment, so it will reveal its own concept at January’s Detroit motor show.
