Powered by new 131bhp (133 DIN hp) 1.8-litre Dual VVT-i engine, suspension and steering tuned for sportier performance, 17-inch alloy wheels and body styling kit with side skirts and rear spoiler, VSC and Traction Control as standard. If this sounds amazing to you, beginning with the 1st of April, you can have your own version of the Toyota Yaris for 12,995 (three-door).
