Toyota to pay tribute to the first Yaris with new model

The 20th anniversary limited edition Yaris.

Toyota is paying tribute to the original Yaris by introducing a new, limited edition Y20 grade to its 2019 model range. Priced to start from €19,740 or from €190 per month it will mark the 20th anniversary of its successful B segment car. Through two decades and three generations, Yaris has become firmly established as Toyota’s best-selling model in Europe and a firm favourite with Irish drivers.

There will be an initial production run of 1998 Launch Edition Y20 models featuring the same gold paintwork used by the first Yaris back in 1998, but with the contemporary twist of a bi-tone dark grey roof. The revised Yaris range will offer a new multimedia system that enables smartphone integration.

The exterior styling uses dark grey features to distinguish the Y20 within the Yaris line-up. These include, 16-inch grey and machined-face 10-spoke alloy wheels, and dark grey side mouldings, front grille, door mirror casings and fog light surrounds (with chrome detailing). The Y20 also sports a shark fin antenna, colour-matched to the roof, dark-tinted rear privacy glass and special Y20 badges at the rear.

The interior extends the dark grey theme, applied to the centre console, steering wheel inserts and new chequer-pattern fabric upholstery. Satin chrome air vent, audio speaker and meter surrounds and gear knob trim, black carpet mats with silver edging and Y20 badging on the instrument panel and front setbacks further enhance the quality feel of the interior.
