EPSOM, UNITED KINGDOM – July 9, 2009: Toyota has made some seasonal nips and tucks to its Yaris range to make it an even more appealing prospect for customers.

New to the line-up is a revised TR feature grade, which now comes with smart 15-inch eight-spoke alloys as standard, just like the range-topping T Spirit models.

The equipment specification includes air conditioning, electric windows and door mirrors, remote central locking, driver and passenger front and side airbags, six-speaker sound system, (four speakers on 1.0 VVT-i models) Toyota Easy Flat split-folding rear seats, leather trimmed steering wheel with audio controls, leather gear shift trim and tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment.

Versions equipped with the 1.33 Dual VVT-i petrol and 1.4 D-4D diesel engines further benefit from chrome-effect interior trim details and driver and passenger sun visors with vanity mirrors.

The on-the-road price for the Yaris TR models is unchanged, starting at 10,280 for the three-door model with 1.0-litre VVT-i petrol engine. Owners can add to the TR’s safety provisions with a new Safety Pack (715) that comprises a driver’s knee airbag, curtain airbags and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) with Traction Control (TRC).

Such has been the popularity of TR models with customers, the SR grade has been deleted from the range.

The revised Yaris TR is on sale now.
