Toyota to roll out 2013 Yaris Trend to replace current model

Article by Anita Panait, on January 14, 2013

Toyota will be revising its Yaris UK grade line up, intending to continue the strong success of the vehicle since its launch in late 2011. According to Toyota, the 2013 Yaris Trend, which was unveiled at the Paris motor show in September 2012, is set to replace the outgoing 2012 Trend grade. The 2013 Yaris Trend features exterior styling elements and dedicated interior finishes, textures and colors aimed at attracting younger car buyers who have an eye for fashion.

The 2013 Yaris Trend carries a style that enhances the most dynamic elements of the Yaris range. The vehicle’s distinctive character is fortified by highlighting the horizontal lines and boosting the link between the interior and exterior design.

The 2013 Yaris Trend will be available as a 5-door only, powered by a 1.33-litre petrol engine paired with either a 6-speed manual or Multidrive S automatic transmission.

Toyota also made sure for several details around the front end to distinguish the 2013 Yaris Trend from the current model, like the chrome elements in the fog light surrounds and headlamps.

Trend variants with white paint have matching white covers in the headlamp units. The 2013 Yaris Trend keeps its blacked-out B and C-pillars to create a floating roof effect, as well as the chrome door sills and door mirror covers.

The new model features 16-inch alloy wheels with machine-finished surfaces and a distinct two-tone design. The vehicle rear features a roof spoiler and LED lamp clusters present on the Yaris Hybrid.

The 2013 Yaris Trend could be availed in Pure White, Tyrol Silver, Burning Red and Decuma Grey. The interior styling mirrors the exterior design theme, with a black and white finish and a contrasting touch of ochre. Toyota posted a 52-percent increase in Yaris sales in 2012 to 27,151 units.
