2016 Toyota Yaris Price, Release date

Last model year changes brought some refreshment in both styling and features of the popular hatch. 2016 Toyota Yaris will not be as interesting and fresh as the 2015 model was, due to recent changes, and preparations for a new generation which should be released for 2017 model year. The reason we expect bigger changes in the 2017 Yaris is its living cycle, since the generation switch every six years, and last one, third, started in 2011. Now, the 2016 Toyota Yaris will be mainly carried over, with few additions which will make the difference between this model and precious one.

2016 Toyota Yaris exterior and interior

2016 Yaris will come with couple of subtle changes on exterior. It will include new exterior colors, and new wheel design, while reshaping and remodeling will have to wait for a new generation. Both two-door and four-door variants will be available.

Popular hatchback will be available in three trim levels including base L, LE and SE. The L trim comes with power door locks and power windows, climate control, a tilted steering wheel, a road computer, Bluetooth connectivity (phone and audio), and a sound system with 6-speakers, a 6.1-inch touchscreen, a CD player, HD radio, an AUX input and a USB/iPod interface.

The LE adds keyless entry, cruise control and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls.

2016 Toyota Yaris SE adds on LED lights, foglights, a rear spoiler, a sport-tuned suspension, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, better material upholstery, and few additional exterior and interior tweaks on styling.

2016 Toyota Yaris engine specs

Under the hood of the Toyota’s 2016 Yaris will be placed the same engine, a 1.5-liter inline 4-cylinder. It is capable to deliver up to 106 hp and 103 pound-feet of torque. Depending on trim, customers will be able to choose between 5-speed manual and a 4-speed automatic transmission. This good-looking hatch has only front-wheel drive available, and we believe that Japanese producer will make some changes there, but with the 2017 model. 2016 Yaris will come with FWD only.

Even though its competitors such as Chevrolet Sonic Turbo and Honda Fit offer more power and better acceleration time, the Yaris has outstanding fuel economy. It is rated at 30/37/33 mpg city/hwy/combined with manual gearbox and 30/36/32 mpg with automatic.

The pricing specs will be released as we approach to its launch, but should stay in the same range as for the previous model. It means that base price will be around $15,000.
