Ahead of the Paris Motor Show next month, Toyota Motor Corporation has released details of its debutants at the show. The all-new Verso MPV and the Yaris Trend will headline their participation at the Paris Motor Show.
According to Toyota, the Yaris Trend is styled to target “younger, design-conscious customers”. So, in order to distinguish the Trend from the rest of the existing range, Toyota has added chrome elements in the fog light surrounds and headlamps, while versions with white paint have matching white covers in the headlamp units.
There are new alloy wheel designs and blacked-out B and C-pillars, as well as a ‘Deco’ line which runs back from the headlights across the Yaris’ sides. A roof spoiler and tail-lights – inspired by the Yaris Hybrid – complete the exterior makeover. Inside, the Trend model gets a black, white and ochre colour scheme throughout, upgraded upholstery and new soft-touch materials on the dash. The ‘Deco’ stripe makes an appearance on the dash, too.
With its exterior styling elements and dedicated interior finishes, textures and colours, it’s aimed at younger customers for who make fashionable design a priority. As well as having distinctive looks, Yaris Trend retains the fundamental qualities that set it apart from the supermini pack. It may be the most compact car in its class, but clever Toyota packaging means there is class-leading space inside. It also has the tightest turning circle – 4.7 metres – making it a master of manoeuvring in tight city streets and parking spaces.
Yaris Trend has been styled to amplify the most dynamic elements of the Yaris range, reinforcing the vehicle’s distinctive character by emphasising the horizontal lines and strengthening the link between the interior and exterior design. The model retains its blacked out B and C-pillars that create a floating roof effect, and there are chrome door sills and door mirror covers. The interior styling reflects the design theme outside, with a black and white finish to create a clean style.
