The refreshed Toyota Yaris will cost $385 more than the 2017 model.
Staying as Toyota’s least expensive model, the 2018 Toyota Yaris builds on its European styling with a sportier and more dynamic look for 2018. Both the L and LE models receive a new front end with a new grille and chrome accents, while the SE grade gets a sporty front fascia featuring new piano black mesh pattern grille surrounded with a chrome accent. In the rear, the Yaris features wider, horizontal tail lights that are integrated into the rear door, as well as a new rear bumper with styling that is more in line with the rear door design. There’s also a new lower bumper garnish with side reflectors to give the Yaris the appearance of a wider stance.
On the inside, the updated Yaris gets several upgrades. Starting with the L model, Toyota has upgraded to a standard tilting three-spoke steering wheel that now includes audio controls. Both the L and LE trims now have the same Sport analog instrumentation found currently on the SE grade.
The standard three-door 2018 Toyota Yaris starts from $16,520 including destination in the U.S., which is a $385 increase over the 2017 model. An automatic transmission costs $750 additional. The three-door Yaris LE will start from $18,170.
If you’re looking at the five-door model, it has a starting price of $17,645 and comes standard with an automatic transmission. The five-door LE trim is $18,545 while the five-door SE with a manual transmission starts at $19,145. Opting for an automatic on the range-topping SE costs $800 additional.
