The Yaris Hybrid has also been improved as it is one of the most important versions on the model's range, being responsible for more than 40% of all Yaris’ European sales. Engineers have introduced  new engine mounts, roll restrictor, front driveshafts and subframe which helps to reduce the car's noise. The Yaris Hybrid ride comfort and steering accuracy has also been improved thanks to adjustments to the shock absorbers and electric power steering.

Toyota Yaris increased popularity goes global

Since the introduction of the third generation Yaris back in 2011, Toyota's supermini popularity has been on a rise. Its share on the B-sgement market have increased to 6.5% with sales growing to more than 208.000 units in 2016.

That's why Toyota has decided to invest €90 million on the restyling of the new Yaris, which includes more than 900 new parts to improve the car’s design, dynamic performance and safety. The design revamp was led by Toyota's European operations and for the first time it will be adopted directly for its sister Vitz model, manufactured in Japan. This is a clear acknowledgement of Europe's expertise, strength and quality of the B-segment market.
