Come 2019 and Toyota is all set to dominate the automobile markets once again with a renamed, upgraded and more refined Yaris that dropped the’iA’ suffix. The Yaris has always been the pearl of the eye for Toyota who have gone great lengths to incorporate masterful strokes to the framework inspired by Japanese design philosophy. One look at this vehicle at Ontario Toyota dealer and we were impressed by this seemingly unassuming 2019 Yaris – the luxury sedan from Toyota for its minute attention to details both inside and out, earning high ratings such as performance, technology, style, comfort and safety. The Yaris is available as the L, LE and XLE with choice of Automatic or Manual transmissions.
Spirited Exterior Styling
The exteriors of the 2019 Yaris are now more refined and appear more spirited with colors that bring out the sculpted accents of the vehicle quite well making it look good from every angle. The race inspired grille set in a honeycomb styled structure adds aggressive styling to the aerodynamic profile. The Yaris gets new sport styling all around, a chrome tip exhaust and a lip spoiler on the upper two models. Addition of auto on/off LED headlights on the front fascia on the top model is a relief and you can add the optional LED daytime running lights for some extra character. Color matched power outside mirrors, outside door handles, a roof mounted shark-fin antenna and integrated AM/FM antenna are standard across all models.
Hop in to Luxury
Get inside the Yaris and you will immediately cherish the luxurious appointments and design ergonomics that encompass every corner of the interiors. Every feature incorporated in to the Yaris defines purpose and adds style, comfort, sophistication and luxury such as the piano black accents on the center console. You will truly appreciate the contoured sport seats, the 60/40 split fold-down rear seats that make way for extra cargo space. Seating is fabric-trimmed on the first two trims with leatherette on the XLE. More standard style accents you will find across the trims are the metallic interior trim with chrome on the door handles and the sculpted bottle holders on the front and rear door storage pockets.
Technology and Convenience
Starting with 3-spoke steering with mounted controls and cruise control, some fantastic standard technology and convenience features you will find on the Yaris are digital clock, a 12v auxiliary power outlet and a instrument cluster that has tripmeters, outside temperature display, cruising range, current and average fuel-economy and several warning messages. Remote keyless entry with push button start is present on the L and the upper trims add a Smart Key System for the front door and trunk with panic alarm. A 7-inch touchscreen display with all the bells and whistles for advanced connectivity sits within easy reach.
Power and Fuel-Economy
The 2019 Toyota Yaris comes with a 1.5L 4-cylinder DOHC with intelligent VVT, delivering 106 hp and 103 lb-ft of torque. This you can pair with a 6-speed manual or automatic. Ontario Toyota appraised us that the Yaris is noted for its fantastic fuel economy of an EPA estimated 35 mpg Combined mileage with the automatic.
