The 2018 Toyota Yaris has arrived. And while you can always come on down to our Greater Vancouver lot in the near future to see for yourself, we thought we'd give you a preview here and now. Why the "predictions" part in the title of this article? Well, we're so impressed with the vehicle's upgrades that we can't help but forecast the positive impact it will have on your life from the moment you take possession. Curious? We knew you would be (see, we started already).
Five Predictions About How the New Toyota Yaris Will Improve Your Lifestyle
1. You Will Become Even More Popular
We know, at this point in one's life the whole "popularity contest" thing becomes passé. But like it or not, people will take notice once you're behind the wheel of a new Yaris so you may as well get used to the envious attention.
It all starts with the enhanced look, a hybrid (so to speak) of sporty and fashionable. The clean and simple lines of the exterior convey modern minimalism, creating an aura of confidence that is so rarely found in a vehicle of this compact class. This conviction is further founded when you opt for the available 16-inch alloy wheels that are completed with sleek dark accents while the available LED Daytime Running Lights boast an accent light bar that serves as your marquee on the road. While there are color and trim options to suit any taste, the Blue Eclipse Metallic tone really makes a statement.
People will be begging to hop along for the ride for the Yaris experience. This experience is steeped in both driver and passenger conveniences, from features as small (but significant) as easy-reach cup holders and door pockets, to 4-way adjustable front passenger seats and a 12V auxiliary power outlet for your devices. Everyone inside the new Yaris will feel a sense of "cool", especially when outfitted with available metallic interior trim accents with satin chrome interior doors.
2. You Will Become More Tech Savvy
Whether you're already versed in new tech developments or are still trying to figure out how to use a universal remote, the tech found in the new Yaris will put you ahead of the curve.
In addition to removing features that consumer research indicated were unnecessary, the functions and controls are more intuitive than ever before, placed front and center on your 6.1-inch touch-screen display. Familiar Bluetooth connectivity will allow you to control the destiny of your auto-infotainment experience, delivering the seamless hands-free phone capability with music streaming that you demand.
The standard integrated backup camera is more logical than ever before, working with your line of vision and depth perception to ensure you pull in and out of parking with ease. Everything about the technology in the refreshed Yaris makes sense, and that's saying something when you consider the digital overkill found in many of today's new vehicles.
3. You Will Travel More
Are you among the many that have little to know sense of direction? The Yaris is sensitive to his state of displacement, with superior available integrated navigation that will have you traveling with 106 horsepower across the city, country, or continent in complete confidence. Road trips with a lot of luggage and cargo in tow will become even more viable thanks to the vehicle's 60/40 split fold-down rear seats. It won't matter how often and how far you will go, with available sport fabric-trimmed seats your comfort will remain intact. All you really need to do is hop in your new Yaris (via keyless remote), hit the highway, switch to cruise control (LE model), and the world is your oyster.
4. You Will Have More Money
The $19,390 (CAD at press) buy-in for this exciting new 2018 vehicle will not only leave plenty of money in your bank account, the EPA-estimated 30 mpg city and 36 mpg highway will keep your discretionary funds flowing, ensuring that you have plenty of fiscal room to live life to the fullest.
5. You Will Lead a Healthier, Safer Life
While life is about to get a whole lot more exciting with the Yaris, this change will not come at the expense of safety. In fact, you can expect this to improve too. Toyota Safety Sense C comes standard in the 2018 Yaris, and features a Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams. Safety is further enhanced by nine standard airbags and Toyota's Star Safety System, which includes Vehicle Stability Control, Traction Control, Anti-lock Brake System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Brake Assist, and Smart Stop Technology.
