Toyota has announced the new special edition Yaris, which is specially designed to attract young, urban-based, design-focused customers. The Yaris Trend will make its official debut at the 2012 Paris Motor Show, before going on sale in early 2013.

The 2013 Yaris Trend comes with black B and C pillars, chrome door sills, chrome door mirror covers, bespoke two-tone 16" alloy wheels, a roof spoiler and LED lamp clusters.

The interior boasts a black and white theme with a touch of Ochre which gives the cabin a uniquely clean, pure style and an enhanced sensory experience appropriate to young design-focused urban customers.

The centre console geometry has been changed, with the soft-touch dashboard and upper door panels finished in white to more strongly emphasise the horizontality of the design. The dashboard itself is highlighted by ‘Deco line' surface detailing which matches that of the exterior bodywork.

The shift knob of versions equipped with Multidrive S transmission also features a white painted insert and Ochre stitching.

The Yaris has been nicknamed "Piccolo Genio" (Little Genius) since its original launch, which highlights its clever packing. It remains the most compact car in the B-segment, yet still delivers class-leading interior space. The Yaris also has a class-leading turning circle of only 4.7 metres, which makes it highly manoeuvrable in congested city streets or whilst parking.
