It is for this reason that manufacturers are concerned about keeping their models “fresh” during the maximum time possible to attract the interest of the customers during the entire sales cycle of the generation. The current generation of the Toyota Yaris appeared in 2011, renewed in 2015. Now, in 2017, it receives another update.

The front bumper is also new, as well as the large grill with a design in the form of a honeycomb and the antinieblas with a new contour chrome. In the side view the most striking change is the introduction of a moulding in the lower area of the doors.
back Toyota Yaris has also received a noticeable redesign. As we can see, Toyota is now searching for a few more lines horizontal, which results in a higher feeling of width. Thus, the pilot lights (with partial illumination of the LED depending on the versions) are in a horizontal position, extending slightly to the rear fins. The bumper is also new and again look for a greater sense of width.

The instrumentation has been modified to transmit the driver to the different information of a more effective way. In the center of the two dials, it incorporates a TFT screen of 4.2 inches, similar to that used in models like the Toyota Auris or the Toyota C-HR that we tested recently. Vents, lighting and some controls of the new bill are some of the novelties.
Also appear new options in fabrics, finishes and colors for the passenger compartment, so that it will be something more customizable than its predecessor; although the possibilities of customization also depends on the level of finish.

New studs motor, transmission, new subframe for the engine, intake and exhaust system, tuning of the suspension and adjustment of the direction have been some of the items reviewed to improve the operation of this variant.
