Yaris Orange Edition: necessary or unneeded summer toy?
Yaris, one of Toyota's most popular models received a summer refresh. The Orange Edition will be recognized by the new orange (you don't say!) metallic body finish and some noticeable and other not so noticeable tweaks made on the outside and the inside of the vehicle.
The bright exterior coloring completely matches the black details that include door mirror casings, rear pillar and side sills. In fact, the sills also feature a sweet chrome flash. The honeycomb-shaped grille is also covered in black matte, just like the sweet 16-inch machined-face alloys.
The interior also received some tweaks. For example, the whole cabin is dominated by the so-called black-on-black theme: there are black headlining and instrument panel, fresh black and grey cloth upholstery and matching piano black finishes for the air vents, central console and gear knob. And the most important thing in a vehicle's cabin, the mats welcome you with contrasting orange stitching. Sweet.
You may notice that the whole facelift is based on the Yaris Icon lineup, but with some slight changes and exclusive additions. Orange Edition buyers will be granted with Cruise Control System, Automatic Air Conditioning (hybrid model only), LED rear lights and rear spoiler. Of course, Toyota lovers won't be deprived by Toyota's Touch 2 multimedia system, rearview camera, projector headlights, LED daytime lights and front fog lights.
And the drivetrain system? The "Orange" can be ordered with three engines: a 1.33 VVT-i petrol with six-speed manual or automatic gearbox, a 1.4-liter D-4D diesel power unit with manual transmission and a 1.5-liter VVT-i petrol hybrid unit.
Toyota Yaris Orange Edition can already be ordered, but deliveries can be expected in August of this year. Prices start from $20,450 USD.
