“Standard features include cruise control, power windows and power door locks – all set off with chrome accents and the soft-touch trim and surfaces.”

The 2016 Toyota Yaris Sedan is not your average subcompact car.

It’s aggressively styled, equipped with premium features and tuned for driving fun.

“This is more than a new car with a familiar name,” said Larry Hutchinson, Vice President at Toyota Canada Inc, at the Quebec launch. “Canadians love the efficiency and nimble performance of subcompacts – and the all-new Yaris Sedan gives drivers even more – much more – of what they love. Whether running errands in the downtown core, or taking a day-trip on the open road, the new Yaris Sedan is built to surprise drivers with premium details and unexpected driving fun.”

Toyota offers the 2016 Yaris Sedan in two trims:

Yaris Sedan – Manual (starting MSRP: $16,995). This model features a short-stroke six-speed manual transmission for quick shifting, and a fuel efficiency rating of 6.7 L / 100 km (city/highway combined).

Yaris Sedan – Automatic (starting MSRP: $18,200). This model features a six-speed automatic transmission with lock-up torque converter, a direct-shift feel, plus a Sport Mode that boosts torque for more spirited driving. This model boasts a fuel efficiency rating of 6.4 L / 100 km (city/highway combined).

Standard features include cruise control, power windows and power door locks – all set off with chrome accents and the soft-touch trim and surfaces. Steering wheel mounted controls put audio and Bluetooth within easy reach. The trunk is spacious and made more versatile thanks to a standard 60/40 split folding rear seat.

The Auto version may be ordered with a Premium Package (MSRP $20,200), adding several enhancements to audio, comfort, convenience and style. These include a Display Audio system with 7” touch screen, six speakers, two USB ports, heated front seats, aluminum alloy wheels, fog lamps, and a back-up camera.

The 2016 Yaris Sedan is now available across Canada.
