Toyota yaris sedan launch colombia

In February 2020, the Toyota Yaris returned to Colombia after a decade-long hiatus and little by little it was complementing its offer: in June it added the version with manual transmission and in August the entry XS version, with slightly less equipment. And now the turn is for the sedan body, which arrives marked as XS and with the option of manual or automatic CVT transmission.

The great novelty, of course, is the trunk, something that will surely attract the attention of families or people who like the profile of this type of vehicle and who need a little more space. In that sense, The Toyota Yaris sedan advertises a trunk capacity of 473 liters, a good jump from the 310 liters in the hatchback that we already knew.

As we mentioned above, the Toyota Yaris sedan arrives in Colombia in an XS version, so we can expect the same equipment as the hatchback body model. In that sense, the safety section we have two airbags, brakes with ABS and EBD, traction and stability controls, three-point seat belts and head restraints in all seats, and Isofix anchors in the two rear side seats.

A 7-inch touchscreen is also fitted as standard for the infotainment system with connectivity for Apple Car Play and Android Auto, automatic air conditioning, cruise control in the version with automatic transmission, fabric upholstery and center armrest in the rear seats.

Mechanically there will be no changes so it remains the same 1,496 cc engine with 106 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm, as well as the six-speed manual transmission or the automatic CVT that simulates seven gears in manual mode.

Although there is no confirmation, later the Toyota Yaris sedan could also arrive in a more equipped version (reaching the seven airbags, for example). However, for the moment there will only be the mechanical XS, for 59.2 million pesos, and the automatic CVT for 63.8 million of pesos.
