It’s a mark of just how competitive the small car arena is that irrespective of any marque you examine, you’re likely to find a very full features list. Toyota seem to have taken this to heart and present the Yaris as the small car to go to if you’re looking for high value for money and features galore!
All of the versions available on Motability include a host of practical assistance features as standard. Your journey will begin with the push-button start and is then largely controlled through multi-information display and audio switches on the steering wheel – plus reversing camera, projector headlights (with follow me home function) and auto wipers.
A manual tilting and telescopic steering wheel along with height-adjustable driver seat makes it easy to find the ideal driving position, from where you’ll operate the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with 7 inch display, DAB digital radio with Bluetooth and 4.2 inch coloured multi-information display (upgraded to include Go navigation system on the Icon Tech trim).
Standard safety kit leaves little aside, giving you road sign assist, lane departure alert, vehicle stability control, traction control, hill-start assist, seven airbags, driver and front passenger whiplash injury lessening seats, pre-collision system, ABS with electronic brake force distribution, emergency brake light signal and automatic high beam lights.
The rear seats fold down in a 60/40 configuration
Admirably, the trim levels are very similar. Indeed, this is reflected with a gentle pricing curve applied to the models available on Motability, where even the top hybrid models have very reasonable advance payments. Where you’ll start to see differences (on the petrol engine models), other than cosmetic touches to lights or adjustments to design, are with the options and packs, with themes such as parking (front and front and rear), protection and style. A panoramic roof is an available option on the Excel and Y20 (though not the Y20 1.5 litre automatic).
Advance Motability Payment: from £0.00*
