A real turn-on from Toyota

New SR 1.8 model sexes up Yaris portfolio

Toyota Yaris SR

The Toyota Yaris is many things, but exciting is not usually a word used to describe it. Until now.

The Japanese firm reckons it has invigorated the Yaris with some serious stimulation in the form of a 131bhp 1.8-litre engine to create the SR.

This sporty flagship for the Yaris range does 0-62mph in 9.3 seconds and costs from £12,995.

Included in the SR package are 17in alloy wheels, distinctive body add-ons, and vehicle stability and tractions controls.

The SR trim can also be ordered for the lesser 1.3 petrol and 1.4 diesel models, which now seem quite dull by comparison.

Now share it...
