Yaris YRX (Au)



Top of the line Yaris gets upgrade
Toyota has upgraded its top-of-the-line Yaris hatchback model with a sports body kit.

The kit consists of a front spoiler, side skirts, roof-level rear spoiler and rear air spats (as additions to the rear bumper).

The newly upgraded Yaris YRX 5-door hatch has a recommended retail price of $20,590* for the manual transmission model and Yaris YRX three-door hatch manual is priced at $19,390*.

The introduction of the Yaris YRX with sports body kit coincides with the launch of the Yaris sedan model, bringing the Yaris range to 14 models.

All Yaris models hatchback are highly specified, with dual SRS airbags, factory-fitted air conditioning, electronic throttle, electric power-assisted steering, and 14-inch brake package with ABS anti-skid brakes, Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA).

Standard equipment also includes wireless power door locks, power windows, power mirrors, MP3-compatible audio system, digital instruments and clock, and a full-sized spare tyre.

High-grade Yaris YRX hatch has a 1.5-litre VVT-i equipped engine, which can be matched to a five-speed manual or electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission with gated shift.

Yaris YRX also has 15-inch alloy wheels, tilt and telescopic steering column adjustment, leather-bound steering wheel with audio controls, leather-bound shift lever, six-disc in-dash CD changer, driver and front passenger seatback map pockets, front passenger’s seat storage under tray and front foglamps.

There is one option for Yaris YRX hatch: an Enhanced Safety pack consisting of front-seat side airbags, full-length curtain-shield airbags and a driver’s knee airbag.

*Recommended retail prices exclude dealer delivery, government and statutory charges and optional extras.

Also those prices are in AUD.

Seems quite close to the Canadian RS specs, but with some subtle improvements.

YARRR!

Send some to Canada!

I'm so close to ordering a Yaris RS, but if there is a remote possibility that the YRX is coming to Canada in the next quarter, I would definitely delay my purchase.

It's kinda like digital cameras though. Even if you wait for the YRX, chances are something better will be rumoured to be right around the corner!!!!!

I think they measure it some marketing way. Maybe referring that you can fit a 14" wheel inside these brakes.

14" Brake package, meaning that it's an option, so they'll tell you when you order it that you have to run 17"s or 18"s, IE the TRD ones (sell sell sell) LOL

Hehe.. this is old news now ... :) Basically all Yaris YRX that were made from 2006 came with the kit as an extra .... the price of the car also went up by about 1K.

14" Brake package is not an option - it's standard!~ Just means it comes with 14" brakes (maybe they measure the diameter of the disc?) I think u'll find that just about every yaris has the same sized brakes up front standard, it's just marketing mumbo jumbo!

Correct .... they have the same seats across teh range .. the YRX has its own unique trim pattern, and slightly better material.
