Compared to the regular variants, the Style Grade offers a Black honeycomb grille with satin chrome ornament, black seat upholstery and piano black inserts inside the cabin.
In addition, buyers opting for the Bi-Tone receive a metallic black ‘wrap-around’ exterior paint, available in colors of Platinum Bronze, Pearl White and Barcelona Red, with a metallic Black finish to the roof, A pillars, door mirrors, upper front wing and bonnet leading edge.
Inside, the Yaris Bi-Tone gets a black headliner, and a choice of three interior shades – all-Black, Warm Grey or Soft-gradation Grey.
