Toyota has officially unveiled the new Orange edition for their Yaris supermini car and it has a confirmed price tag attached to it.
Whenever there is a slowdown in overall sales or if there is a need to celebrate a milestone, auto manufacturers indulge in such launches. A color tone is a simple aspect but for a supermini car like the Yaris, it adds vibrance to the lineup and most importantly encourages buyers to go for it if they are brooding over the possibility of buying one.
The name Toyota Yaris Orange Edition is self-explanatory. The car features an Orange Twist with metallic paint which has been appropriately contrasted with black accents in the car. The black tones are used in the rear pillars of the car, its side sills and the door mirror casings. Additional components which are part of the special edition include 16-inch alloy wheels, panoramic roof and rear privacy glass.
The orange color tone is maintained throughout the model and the same can be found in the inside of the Toyota Yaris. The entire instrument panel is adorned in a matte black finish while the air vents, center console and the gear knob features a piano black finish. The designers did their job which is evident from the black carpets that are lined with orange stitching in the corners. Such minor things will be appreciated by buyers who seek a complete package that sticks to the badging.
In terms of features, Toyota has added some new ones to the Yaris to make it stand out of the crowd. It now sports a large touchscreen multimedia system, a rear view camera, LED daytime lights and cruise control system. The five-door model Yaris is available with a petrol and diesel powertrain options along with a hybrid variant as well. Buyers can choose to go for a manual transmission system or a CVT automatic system, based on their preference.
The Yaris Orange Edition is powered by a 1.33 liter VVT i-unit which comes with a sticker price of £15,795. The automatic gearbox version is a solid £1000 higher than the base model. The diesel version uses a 1.4-liter D-4D unit and is available only with a manual gearbox. The hybrid variant is priced at £17,995 which uses an automatic transmission system. With wide range of choices and an impressive color tone, the new Orange Edition Toyota Yaris might find some new owners when it hits stores.
