TOYOTA AUSTRALIA has wheeled out a feature-laden new addition to its Yaris range. Badged the Yaris Edge, the limited edition model gains roughly $1000 in additional features for $500 over the price of the base model Yaris YR.
Available on both three and five-door bodystyles, the Edge gets the 15-inch alloys of the up-spec Yaris YRX, a six-stacker CD player with USB input and Bluetooth connectivity for mobile phones and audio players.
The Edge also gets foglights, Edge-branded floormats and special badging.
While equipment levels are upgraded on the Edge, the standard 63kW 1.3 litre inline four used by the Yaris YR remains. A safety package incorporating side and curtain airbags is still a $750 option, as is metallic paint (which costs an extra $300).
The Edge package comes standard with the choice of a five-speed manual or four-speed auto, dual front airbags, power windows, power mirrors, airconditioning, ABS, electronic brake distribution and brake assist.
