Toyota Motor Vietnam (TMV) has announced the introduction of the new and improved Yaris 2016, with additional functions for drivers.

The Yaris 2016 is a completely-built-unit (CBU) imported from Thailand and went on sale at all TMV dealers nationwide on September 16.

It was first introduced in Vietnam in 2011 as a CBU model.

Shortly after its introduction the Yaris quickly created a new benchmark for the small hatch-back segment, with a youthful and stylish design and compact body size while boasting a spacious and comfortable interior full of handy features.

Nearly 9,000 have been sold in the five years since it was introduced.

To better meet the needs of drivers, the Yaris 2016 has upgraded to a 2NR-FE 1.5L engine with Dual Variable Valve Timing-intelligence (VVT-i), adding power and impressive fuel economy.

The Stepless CVT gearbox with seven-speed simulator provides smooth acceleration, flexibility and convenience.

The new Yaris comes in two versions: the Yaris G and the Yaris E, in five unchanged colors: Silver Metallic (1D4), Gray Metallic (1G3), Red Mica Metallic (3S1), Frozen Blue Metallic (8W8) and Super White (040).

First introduced in 1999 as a global strategic model, the Yaris, whose name derives from the Goddess Charis in Greek mythology, who symbolized flawless beauty and elegance, represented a new standard in small cars - elegant, intelligent, and strong.

It became a global phenomenon in the hatch-back segment immediately after launch, achieving major success in the European, North American and Japanese markets, and was named “Car of the Year in the European market” in 2000.

Following on from that success, the second generation Yaris was launched in 2005 and then enhanced with a number of minor changes in 2009 and 2012.

The Yaris launched in 2014 had a more impressive exterior, a more spacious interior, powerful performance, and better fuel economy, which helped it surpass its competitors to achieve impressive sales of nearly 7 million in more than 70 countries and territories worldwide.
