2018 Toyota Yaris Hybrid – The Toyota Yaris of 3rd generation is entitled to a second restyling. She took the opportunity to improve two or three things about its hybrid version, which should, therefore, continue to ensure its success.
2018 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Interior Exterior
The success story should continue with this third generation revisited. We are retards on the hybrid version, which runs best in our region. In terms of look, obviously, there is little to say. The front is changing at the margin but must be initiated to see, just like in the back. She perfectly interferes in today’s urban landscape without being noticed. It’s a size of 3.95 mallows him to live in the city without the problem.
Inside, the instrumentation is complete, without too much. Counters indicate most obviously, but also reveal a system of colors instead of the towers account that helps drive the economy, putting the needle on the green. It is located in terms of Assembly and finishing in the middle of urban women of the segment, that is to say, well no more. For convenience, there is a central color screen that manages all functions of entertainment, but also information from the onboard computer, including historical routes identifying the performance of consumption. We sat rather well, a little vertically at the front, but it is also ideal to dominate what is happening outside. The batteries do not impinge on the chest, that keeps the same capacity.
2018 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Test Drive
Let’s talk first about what bothers most at the wheel. Of course, when we decide to drive the 2018 Toyota Yaris Hybrid as it conducts its usual thermal motor car, you don’t understand too much what is happening. Is pressed, the engine revving at a high constant speed, and expected that the next report is to bring back a bit of silence aboard. Except that a vehicle of its kind doesn’t have the same operating instructions. Touches the pedal and our Yaris soars in silence until little urban cruising speed. The small block gasoline 4-cylinder 75 ch 1.5 goes on to take over beyond 30 mph or a little less depending on the percentage of acceleration, but imperceptibly. To watch the position of the needle on the meter to check whether or not it works indeed. When Toyota told us beforehand that we were going to run probably at least 50% of the time on simple electric motor propulsion, we had a little hard to believe.
The course played 10 km highway, then interspersed with a few crossings of villages and towns country road. Once we integrate the right way to drive, without ever getting upset, we evolve in a soft cocoon. To help recharge, it triggers the B-mode selector of the box auto in deceleration phases. However, we are reassured, when you get the power to fit on a fast track, for example, she also knows do. The false sensation of skating gives the impression of hovering, and yet she picks up speed, evidenced by the 100 km/h since the decision reached in an honorable time of 12 seconds. In terms of chassis, the Yaris is without history, with a damping which ensures a good comfort, and a rather consistent direction. On our journey of 50 kilometers, according to the box shipped to measure our performance, we drove 53% of the time in power, reflecting the quality of the hybrid chain. So our average barely 5 liters. A performance that you can easily improve if we play even better the game of eco-driving, we have not really done.
2018 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Prices and Conclusion
We understand the success of the 2018 Toyota Yaris Hybrid, that should not contradict themselves. Admittedly, for urban use, she ticks off some good boxes. We don’t necessarily recommend it to people in mountainous areas, but it is certainly one of the cities least fuel consuming. By the way, Toyota banishes its Diesel version for individuals and offers more than professionals. Otherwise, a sporty variation “GRMN” will arrive a little later. The range of prices of the hybrid extends from € 19 450 to € 21 850, with already widely essentially on finishing first. For little whether you’re ready to pay the price, she has not really competition. It has its flaws, and particularly its CVT transmission that we’d like to see disappear, or at least to improve. And yet, it remains the best-selling hybrid city car, and the 5th best-selling segment in France all versions combined.
