Toyota will launch its third generation Yaris this summer in the UK.

The carmaker said the car will mark a “breakthrough in its segment for affordable multimedia connectivity” with the introduction of Toyota Touch & Go. Set to be standard equipment on 95% of sales, it has a 6.1-inch display with touch screen.

Three powertrains, described as “low emission and fuel-efficient”, will be available: 1.0-litre VVT-i and 1.33-litre dual VVT-i petrol units and a 1.4-litre D-4D diesel.

Didier Leroy, president and CEO Toyota Motor Europe, said: “New Yaris represents Toyota’s strongest offer yet in the important supermini segment.

“With its new levels of ingenuity, efficiency and quality, we are confident it can build upon Yaris’s previous success and help Toyota rejuvenate its presence in Europe and move towards one million annual sales in the region in the medium term.”
