Toyota models add to sporty summer

Toyota is boosting this year's summer of sport by launching its new Yaris Edition and Trend models.

The sporty models feature blacked-out C-pillars combined with darkened rear privacy glass and Tyrol Silver or Cirrus White paintwork to create a floating roof effect.

The Edition, offered from £11,695, has 15-inch Podium anthracite, machined alloy wheels, front fog lamps, rear privacy glass, extra chrome exterior rear trim, a tachometer, manual air conditioning, and a leather-trimmed gear knob.

The model, which comes with either three or five doors is powered by a 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine, with five-speed manual transmission.

The Yaris Trend, offered from £13,795, has also gone down the sports road with the new Podium alloys in 16-inch form and a chrome tailpipe trim.

Drivers are also offered the Toyota Touch & Go multimedia system with satellite navigation as an option.

It is powered with a 1.33-litre VVT-i petrol unit, with a choice of six-speed manual or, in the five-door version, Toyota's Multidrive S CVT automatic.

With all the added extras drivers should ensure they take outcar insurance to protect their sporty new model.
