Toyota Yaris – Engine and Efficiency

The new Toyota Yaris now have three-cylinder engines.

A number of manufacturers have produced three cylinders, 1 litre turbocharged engines. Some research has shown that typically these engines have real fuel consumption figures that are significantly higher than the rated figure from the laboratory.

Toyota’s engine is bigger 1.5 litres but not turboed.

The engine has 88kW a gain of 10 per cent and 2.7 per cent more torque. It is rated at 5.4 litres/100km for the manual and even better 4.9 litres/100km for the CVT.

The hybrid option, which is not available in the base model, uses a slightly detuned engine plus the electric motor to give a similar total power. Fuel consumption is rated at just 3.3 l/100km.

Hybrid powertrains now account for 24% of all new Toyota sales in Australia.
