Toyota Yaris 1.3 VVT-i SOL Touch – Worthy Successor to the Starlet
Toyota Yaris 1.33 Dual VVT-i Sol “Touch” is the third generation of longer than its predecessor (10cm), and increased the wheelbase of 2460 mm in 2510 and has thus become a more spacious cabin and comfortable. Seats are not as objectionable, are comfortable and adjustable in all directions. The rear seats will offer more space for your knees than you expect, so the rear can easily accommodate three adults and the average growth and weight. Cab offers ample headroom, so the above average high and people will not bother driving.
As I wrote, the cabin is spacious, but storage space is too much. At various places are located in compartments for small and large things. You will always find a place to store cell phones, bottles, etc.. The luggage compartment offers even more – above-average capacity of 286 liters that expands to 768 liters is commendable.
Toyota Yaris 1.33 Dual VVT-i Sol “Touch” – interior. Why to the cabin layout is concerned, the greatest changes are visible in the design of the cockpit and center console. The old Corolla was more oriented toward the center, while in the test model of the instrument panel in front of the driver shaft. The central tunnel is slightly lower set and therein lies the handbrake, gear knob and a host of storage compartments. The center console is not a “flooded” the various buttons on it but there is air conditioning and a large touch screen (Touch & Go). With the display system is operated car audio system and navigation. A complete equipment list here.
The engine in the new Toyota Yaris has not changed. The main engine was still 1.0-liter petrol engine with 69 hp. 1:33 followed by the Dual VVT-i with 99 hp (to test), while the diesels customers can only get 1.4-liter D-4D with 90 hp. Bids will soon extend the hybrid version of the urban model.
Toyota Yaris 1.33 Dual VVT-i Sol “Touch” The tested model was equipped with a 1.33-liter Dual VVT-i engine developing 99 hp. With 125 Nm of torque and technology of variable intake and exhaust Venza (Dual VVT-i), this model proved to be lively enough for a faster ride. Engine likes high revs and accelerates well if gets what he wants, no result can be a little more noise in the cabin – as expected. This engine is paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, precise workmanship. Gearbox is stiff enough and not get stuck when changing gears as aggressive drivers will appreciate. We tested the Toyota Yaris test loads 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers traveled (combined). If the little eye on the accelerator to believe spending could go down and 6 liters.
The new Yaris is definitely the best in coping with urban a lot of. It is enough for a dashing start at traffic lights and “push” through the crowd, and the suspension does not show any fatigue after a long ride on the “great” city roads. In inter mode, it’s nice to cruise, but may be slightly more aggressive ride. Toyota Yaris 1.33 Dual VVT-i Sol “Touch” Of course, not be expected because our sports performance to the Yaris can not afford. On the highway there is not much drift, only at higher speeds (150 km / h) becomes quite noisy in the cabin.
