2020 Toyota Yaris – first compact TNGA-based model; Dynamic Force engines, Advanced P

The new Toyota Yaris has made its debut, this being the first to use the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) for a compact model application, here dubbed GA-B. This use of the platform increases torsional rigidity by 30% and lowers the centre of gravity by 15 mm, while being lighter by 50 kg compared to the previous generation, says Toyota.

The ground-up redesign extends to the line-up of engines for the Yaris, which is comprised of a 1.5 litre Dynamic Force engine which can be paired with either a direct-shift CVT or six-speed manual gearbox; this is joined by a 1.0 litre three-cylinder engine that has been revised for increased tumble flow, higher EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) rate and reduced friction to achieve lower fuel consumption, the company said.

Safety equipment for the new hatcback is comprised of the latest iteration of the Toyota Safety Sense active safety suite, which is now expanded to be capable of detecting oncoming cars and pedestrians when turning into a junction, features offered on a Toyota for the first time.

Also a Toyota first is the addition of Low Speed Acceleration Control which aims to prevent collisions due to misapplication of the throttle pedal at low speed. This employs millimetre-wave radar and a camera to recognise pedestrians directly in front of the car, and will suppress engine output or lightly apply the brakes if an object is detected in front of the car and the throttle pedal is depressed with excessive force from stationary or from low speeds.

Safety features also available for the new Yaris include Dynamic Radar Cruise Control with full-speed range, Lane Tracing Assist to remain centred in the lane when using Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, auto high beam and road sign assist that will display detected road signs for the driver.

Another Toyota first appearing on the 2020 Yaris is Advanced Park, which supports automated parking manoeuvres that takes care of not just steering, but also throttle and brake application, says Toyota; the driver only needs to operate gear selection according to provided instructions. This system alerts the driver with audible warnings and will apply the brakes, while cameras and ultrasonic sensors monitor the car’s surroundings.

Connectivity for the Yaris comes courtesy of Helpnet, one of T-Connect services that provides drivers with assistance in case of an accident or sudden illness. A Helpnet button connects the vehicle to an operator who can arrange for emergency service based on the vehicle’s location, while the available D-Call Net determines whether or not a medical helicopter is required by connecting to an operator if the Yaris’ airbags are deployed.

More innovations feature within the Yaris for occupant comfort, with the front seats in the new hatchback featuring a turn-tilt mechanism that enables occupants to enter and exit the vehicle more easily particularly when wearing more restrictive clothing such as a skirt or a kimono, says Toyota; this function also aids the movements of those with back pains or limited strength. The driver’s seat also features an easy return mechanism which recalls the driver’s manually chosen seating position.

The Yaris comes in three trim levels for each of the 1.0 litre, 1.5 litre and 1.5 litre hybrid powertrain options, and the hatchback is offered in 12 colours including new Ice Pink Metallic and Coral Crystal Shine colours; there are also six two-tone colour schemes which can be paired with either a white or a black roof finish.
