    ROAD TEST Yaris LX New facelift

    Post by Admin on Tue Jun 30, 2009 7:33 pm




    appearances have been changed slightly, but you'll have to look closely in order to distinguish the facelifted Yaris from the one it replaces. There are new bumpers for both the front and rear sections of the car, with both having an integrated protection "insets" taken from those GT racers in order to give viewers an impression of wider overhangs.

    That black grille housed between vertically descending lines gives cue to a new "voluminous headlamp design" that Toyota claims, has been adopted to create a stylish-looking appearance. To be honest, we can't tell the difference, but we don't care - the Yaris has always looked good in our books.

    Turn your attention to the side mirrors though, and you'll spot the differences between the new and older one, where it comes integrated with turn signals, while the rear tail lamp cluster has been slightly changed. Apparently, amber signal covers have made a comeback since the early nineties.

    The pair flanks a boot-lid that leads to a boot housing a full-sized spare tyre, believe it or not. The Yaris retains its "easy-flat" folding system where the interior geometry has been figured out in such a way that the one-piece backrests fold themselves down with just one lever-lifting action.

    The head and seat cushions do not have to be toyed with. Even your front seats can be left in their rearmost positions when operating the device. Unfortunately, this has resulted a reduction in cargo loading volume - less than gaining rivals such as the new Honda Jazz/Fit, possibly the Nissan Latio.

    On the inside, a new interior fabric material finds itself wrapped around everywhere, and is less dreary in appearance. In fact, we find it to be a little sporty too.

    There are two variants in the present Yaris line-up. The basic LX model exists in order to make life difficult for the competitive Hyundai Getz model line-up as it's cheaper and more accessible to those who want to buy Thai, er, Japanese. It comes with a tilt-adjustable steering wheel, gated automatic shift lever, intermittent wipers with mist control, two sun visors, vanity mirrors and three well-sized cup-holders[img]earances have been changed slightly, but you'll have to look closely in order to distinguish the facelifted Yaris from the one it replaces.
