More spared and more dynamic. We’ve already driven the ambitious Toyota Yaris Hybrid


THE Toyota Yaris is one of the keystones of Toyota’s presence in Europe, where it is manufactured (in France) and where it became the best-selling model in the Japanese brand’s range (224,000 units in 2019, with a 7.6% share of the B segment ).

Right from the launch of the original generation in 1999, it started to gain prominence by winning the important Car of the Year trophy in this continent (for the first time for Toyota), in the second generation it managed to be the first car of this class to win the five stars in the safety tests of Euro NCAP and in the third it was also a pioneer in making a hybrid version available in segment B, this in 2012.

And successfully to the point that in many markets, the hybrid version is now the only one available (in others, like the Portuguese, there is also a 1.0 of 72 hp and a 1.5 of 122 hp, even though the hybrid represented more than half of the registrations in our country last year) and have led competing brands to follow suit, specifically the new Honda Jazz and Renault Clio, both with hybrid versions.
