Toyota is to make revisions to its Yaris line-up for the New Year, with the inclusion of a new Trend grade for 2013.
First revealed at the Paris Motor Show in September, the new Trend trim is designed to appeal to young, fashion-conscious consumers.

Inside, there is a black and white finish to both the dash and the upholstery to compliment the exterior look.
Trend will be available in 5-door only, with the best-selling 1.33-litre petrol engine, and either a 6-speed manual or Multidrive S automatic transmission.

In 2012, the new Yaris’ first year of sales, the achieved sales of 27,151, a 52 per cent increase compared to 2011.
