Toyota unveiled the new Yaris TRD Sportivo at the 2016 Bangkok International Motor Show on March 22.
Toyota made the world premiere of the new Yaris at the 2013 Auto Shanghai in April, 2013. It was basically the same as the Vitz, which was already out in Japan and Europe, and the Yaris, but it had a new platform developed especially for developing countries. It also has a significantly different exterior design from the Vitz.
At the Bangkok International Motor Show, Toyota unveiled the new Yaris-based TRD Sportivo. The Sportivo is a model developed by Toyota’s custom parts brand TRD for maximum sportiness.
The model has features such as a specialty bumper, skid plate, and side skirts. The front grille is done in black. The aluminum wheels are also specially-designed. The bumper has daytime running lights.
The interior has black and orange leather seats. There are also orange accents for the dashboard, door trim panels, and floor mats.
