Toyota Yaris 2012 unveiled in Japan as Vitz
Toyota has unveiled the latest Vitz hatchback in Japan, better known to us as the Yaris, and the all-new 2012 model at that. The new model is said to be more spacious than the outgoing one.
The 2012 Toyota Vitz will be offered in Japan with the choice of 1.0-litre, 1.3-litre and 1.5-litre engines, all mated to CVT automatics and front-wheel-drive. Also, the 1.3-litre can be had with all-wheel-drive and a fuel-saving engine start-stop feature, while the 1.5-litre can be had in sporty RS body-kitted trim with a 5-speed manual.
Of course, none of the fancier features will likely make it to the 2012 Yaris that should come to the UAE, Saudi Arabia and the GCC by the middle of 2011 in hatchback and sedan body styles.
