2013 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Interior. On board, the Toyota Yaris Hybrid interior features an exclusive, hybrid blue finish to the dashboard soft-touch pads and seat fabric trim, blue illumination to the hybrid combimeter and a Toyota Touch system which incorporates a Hybrid Energy Monitor, and a hybrid-specific CVT gear knob.
The Yaris Hybrid maintains identical occupant space and the same 286 litre luggage capacity as that of the standard model.
2013 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Exterior. The Toyota Yaris Hybrid features an exclusive, aerodynamically efficient exterior design. It combines a new, more aggressive, Under Priority frontal design language -the distinctive new face of the next generation Toyota family- with Keen Look detailing such as front and matching rear LED lighting.
The new Yaris Hybrid benefits from improvements to air flow both over the restyled front of the body and, through the adoption of underbody covers and wheel spats, beneath it.
2013 Toyota Yaris Hybrid Engines and Transmissions. The downsized full hybrid system combines a new, 1.5 litre petrol engine with a lighter, more compact electric motor, transaxle, inverter and battery pack. Total system weight is 42 kg less than that of the Auris Hybrid, making the new powertrain 20% lighter.
The 1.5 litre Atkinson Cycle petrol engine is 16.5 kg lighter and 10% shorter than the 1.8 litre unit of existing Toyota HSD powertrains. When used in combination with a cooled Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) system, an Atkinson cycle engine offers significant gains in fuel efficiency and the reduction of emissions.
Combining the power of a 55kW petrol engine and the electric motor, the Yaris Hybrid’s highly efficient, 74 kW/100 DIN hp powertrain will offer the best balance of performance and fuel consumption/CO2 emissions in the B-segment, whilst allowing customers frequent driving in modes that emit zero NOx, PM or CO2 emissions.
