Meet the Redesigned, European-Inspired 2015 Toyota Yaris

The Toyota Yaris has always possessed some very appealing qualities: it’s affordable, efficient, comfortable, and fun. Unlike some other subcompacts out there, the Yaris has personality, its own unique flair. With the redesigned 2015 Toyota Yaris, drivers will see this same personality shine through, only this time it’s more stylish, modern, and dare we say, chic?

2015 Yaris Exterior Design

Right away, you will notice the 2015 Yaris’ new grille. The old separate upper and lower grille design was nixed for a sleeker and larger grille opening, reminiscent of a luxury vehicle. A seamless chrome upper grille accent adds to that sense of refinement and attitude.

2015 Yaris Interior

Moving to the interior of the Yaris, passengers will be impressed with the updated interior, fitted with soft-touch materials, a minimalistic and attractive dash, and a high-end gear shift. There is certainly a European feel inside the Yaris, giving an air of sophistication not usually experienced in a subcompact. Overall, the finished product is exceptional. In addition to the design and materials, the interior of the 2015 Yaris also boasts a quieter cabin, thanks to added insulation and a more aerodynamic body construction. Add to that the retuned suspension and you’ve got a pretty smooth ride as well.

2015 Yaris Powertrain

The 2015 Toyota Yaris is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, delivering 106-horsepower and 103 lb-ft. of torque. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard but drivers can opt for a 4-speed electronically controlled version as well.

2015 Yaris Trim Levels

Available in the L, LE, and SE trims, the 2015 Yaris comes with tons of standard features, even some that you wouldn’t expect from a compact car.

Move up to the LE to experience steering wheel-mounted audio controls, metallic interior accents, and keyless entry. Finally, the SE trim boasts sport-fabric seats, a leather steering wheel, LED running lights, and fog lights.
