Japanese marque Toyota has unveiled this week the facelifted 2015MY Yaris in U.S. specification which is slated to go on sale later this month at a starting price of $14,845. It looks just about the same as the European variant so it packs an updated front fascia with massive air intakes and a slender grille. The headlights have also gone through a significant revision while the suspension has been retuned and the interior cabin received more sound deadening material and a different dashboard. The 2015MY Toyota Yaris will be sold with a choice of three trim levels: L, LE and SE.
The base L comes with power windows & locks, air conditioning as well as an Entune infotainment system packing a 6.1-inch touchscreen display. Move up to the LE variant and you also get keyless entry, cruise control, 15-inch alloys and a silver & metallic interior trim. The range-topping SE comes with LED daytime running lights, projector beam headlights, bigger brakes, sport-tuned suspension along with 16-inch wheels, bespoke cloth upholstery, glossy black trim, rear spoiler and a leather-covered steering wheel.
Motivation is provided by a 4-cylinder 1.5-liter gasoline engine rated at 106 bhp (79 kW) and 139 Nm (103 lb-ft) sent to the front wheels through a standard 5-speed manual or an optional 4-speed automatic gearbox.
