UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) displayed the all-new Toyota Yaris at the 2019 Malaysia Autoshow for public viewing before the B-segment hatchback makes its official debut here.
The one on display is the range-topping Yaris 1.5 G fitted with aero kit. Helping the Yaris to stand out from the range of Toyota models is the vibrant Citrus Mica Metallic exterior colour – other colours include Red Mica Metallic, Attitude Black, Silver Metallic and Super White II.
The model on display comes with the aero kit fitted which adds a four-piece body kit in black with red pin striping and a body coloured roof spoiler.
Standard equipment on the Yaris 1.5 G includes projector halogen headlamps with LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps, LED combination tail lamps, keyless entry and start, 16-inch dual-tone alloys wrapped in 195/50 profile rubbers, an Optitron Meter and Multi-information Display, Electrochromic rear-view mirror, automatic climate control, DVD-AVX touchscreen infotainment system, 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor and fabric seats.
Under the hood, the Yaris shares the same powertrain as the facelifted Vios, a 2NR-FE 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i engine and CVT with seven virtual ratios making 107 hp and 140 Nm of torque.
In terms of safety equipment, the Yaris is identical to the facelifted Vios which comes with 7 airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, hill-start assist and Blind Spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
The all-new Toyota Yaris is now available for booking at all authorised UMWT dealers nationwide with three variants available at launch – 1.5 J, 1.5 E and 1.5 G priced from RM71,888 to RM84,888.
Our local spec Yaris will be locally-assembled at UMWT’s new plant in Bukit Raja, Klang and comes with a 5-Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty.
