Toyota is planning to expand their lineup and take it to the next level. The Japanese car manufacturer announced that the 2019 Toyota Yaris Hybrid is coming as the main part of these plans. Toyota established a lot of models in the U.S. market. The new Yaris is updated, especially exterior that looks aggressive.
The new hybrid model offers good safety rating, easy driving, and practicality. On top of that, Toyota says that the upcoming hybrid model comes with a quieter cabin thanks to a new front driveshaft, modified airbox system, and redesigned engine mounts. With all been told, Toyota Yaris Hybrid will hit the markets with many new updates.
2019 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Comes with a Wider Grill
The exterior of 2019 Toyota Yaris Hybrid is not completely changed, but the facelift suffered just enough upgrades to call it a change. While upfront almost everything is the same, the grille is wider at the top. Fog lamps are slightly redesigned and are little narrower than before. The nose above the bumper is reshaped and Yaris now looks bulkier as a result. The black elements are removed and everything is now in body color.
The headlamps now come with more angular design and a new layout with LED strips. Now the customers can choose 3 or 5-door model, but the exterior dimensions are the same. If the rear seats are often in use, we recommend 5-door model, mostly because of easier access.
While standard model features 15-inch alloy wheels, the Hybrid model offers new 16-inch wheels.
Finally, Toyota Yaris Hybrid is available with two new colors, Hydro Blue and Tokyo Red, and there are now 10 different exterior colors in the lineup.
