Continuing the successful mix of powertrains featured in the previous generation model range, the new yaris will be available with a choice of three engines 1.0 and 1.33 litre vvt-i petrol engines and
- Choice of Euro V compliant, 1.0 and 1.33 litre petrol and 1.4 litre D-4D diesel engines
- Toyota Optimal Drive measures for improved fuel consumption and CO2 emissions without compromise to power and torque levels
- New Multidrive S transmission with 7-step manual sequential override
- Improved Stop & Start system with longer engine shut off and broader operating temperature band
All three engines benefit from the application of Toyota Optimal Drive, a range of engineering measures designed to maximise performance and driving enjoyment while minimising fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Toyota Optimal Drive focuses on several key aspects of powertrain development such as lightweight, compact design, enhanced combustion efficiency, low friction components and environmentally friendly technologies. This, combined with weight saving measures and aerodynamic improvements, helps lower fuel consumption and CO2 emissions without compromising power and torque levels.
Combining light weight and compact design with the power and torque delivery essential to urban driving, all three engines return highly competitive fuel consumption figures, generate low, tax-efficient CO2 emissions and are Euro V compliant.
A marvel of miniaturisation, Toyota's 3-cylinder, 1.0 litre VVT-i petrol engine led the trend for powertrain downsizing. To this day it remains a reference for compact, efficient engineering. The lightest unit in its class, it has won successive Engine of the Year awards in the sub-1.0 litre category.
Mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the latest version of the 998 cc unit generates 69 DIN hp at 6,000 rpm and maximum torque of 93 Nm at 3,600 rpm. Fuel consumption has been lowered by 4% to 4.8 l/100 km, and CO2 emissions lowered by 7% to only 110 g/km, making it the ideal engine for the shorter journeys of urban-based Yaris drivers.
A 1.33 Dual VVT-i petrol unit is available for customers requiring an engine with more power and torque. The engine is lightweight and compact, with a small bore and long stroke, resulting in a very high power-to-weight ratio. It combines strong dynamic performance, generating a 99 DIN hp at 6,000 rpm and, via a smoothened torque curve, a maximum 125 Nm at 4,000 rpm. When mated to the new Multidrive S transmission, fuel economy is just 5.1 l/100 km and CO2 emissions are at 118 g/km.
The 1.33 litre petrol engine's optional new Multidrive S transmission showcases Toyota's latest Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) technology. It now features a new manual override, sequential, 7-step mode operable by either the gearshift lever or steering wheel-mounted paddles.
Multidrive S operates within a wider band of gear ratios than a conventional transmission, allowing for both better acceleration from a standstill and improved fuel efficiency at cruising speeds.
Engaging the Multidrive S Sport mode brings a closer alignment of engine and vehicle speeds, giving a more linear feel to acceleration in the manner of a conventional manual transmission. The Sport mode enhances acceleration performance and awards the driver a more dynamic driving experience.
Yaris models fitted with the 1.33 litre Dual VVT-I petrol engine may be equipped with an improved version of Toyota's Stop & Start system. Available in specific markets, the system now features a longer engine shut off time and will operate through a wider temperature range.
Finally, for customers who wish to combine strong performance with high mileage driving, a 1.4-litre D-4D diesel engine is available, fitted, as standard, with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). Equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, it generates 90 DIN hp at 3,800 rpm and maximum torque of 205 Nm at 1,800-2,800 rpm. Fuel consumption has been lowered by 7% to 3.9 l/100 km, and CO2 by 6% to just 103 g/km
Available as an option on 1.4 D-4D diesel versions of the new Yaris, MultiMode is an automated manual transmission with a fully automatic shift mode and no clutch pedal. It offers the driver a choice of two, fully automatic gear change modes or a manual, sequential gear change with steering wheel-mounted shift paddles.
