A new Toyota Yaris will arrive in Ireland this summer just in time for 172 sales.

Styling has been updated and the new car will have a more modern interior.

The 3-door Toyota Yaris range kicks off at €13,950 and the 5-door range starts at €16,950.

There will be five trim levels: Terra (from €13,950), Luna (from €17,575), Sol (from €19,450), Aura (from €19,575, hybrid only) and Luna Sport (€22,750).

Engine options include a 1.0-litre petrol engine, a new 1.5-litre petrol and a 1.4-litre diesel. There is also a 1.5-litre hybrid.

Toyota has used the update to reengineer the Yaris Hybrid for quieter performance and improved ride and steering.

Hybrid currently accounts for more than 35% of Yaris sales in Ireland.
