The 2019 Toyota Yaris has yet to make its launch debut here in Malaysia, but it looks like units are beginning to make their way to dealers. This particular example was spotted at the Toyota showroom in Section 19, Petaling Jaya, and we’re bringing you a full gallery of it.

Getting into the specifics, the car seen here is the top-spec G variant, which is one of three that will be offered to buyers – the others being the E and base J. For now, we’re being provided estimated pricing (OTR without insurance), with the G going for RM84,888, the E for RM77,888, and the J for RM71,888.

Regardless of variant choice, five colours will be made available, including Super White, Silver Metallic, Attitude Black, Red Mica Metallic, and the colour you’re looking at here, Citrus Mica Metallic.

In terms of what goes under the bonnet, the Yaris shares the same engine and transmission with the Vios, which is the a 2NR-FE 1.5 litre Dual VVT-i engine (107 PS and 140 Nm), paired to a CVT with seven virtual ratios.

Equipment-wise, the Yaris in G guise appears to get projector headlights, 16-inch two-tone alloy wheels (with 195/50 profile tyres) and LED taillights on the exterior. This unit also looks to be fitted with the optional RM2,800 aerokit, which adds on front and rear bumper spoilers, side skirts and a roof spoiler. A cheaper, RM2,450 aerokit is also available, but it comes without the roof spoiler.

Moving inside, the Yaris’ dashboard is basically identical to that in the Vios, and features a DVD-AVX infotainment system with a 360-degree camera system, Optitron instrument cluster with a 4.3-inch multi-info display, single-zone automatic climate control, fabric seats, rear USB charging ports and a multifunction steering wheel.

Safety kit includes seven airbags, hill-start assist and blind spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert. These items are again, like what you would find with the Vios.

As reported previously, the Yaris’ estimated prices are between RM2,400 to RM5,300 cheaper than the equivalent Vios, which is priced from RM77,200 to RM87,300. Like the Vios, the Yaris will be assembled at UMW Toyota’s new plant in Bukit Raja, Klang, and you can click here to register your interest.
