Choosing the Right Yaris - Sunshine Coast Buyers Guide

What is not to love about Toyota small cars?  Toyota has a long history of producing some of the most reliable compact cars available in Australia– they just go and go for years and they do it in style.  And if you’re looking for style and performance, you must take a look at the Toyota Yaris. Sunshine Coast lifestyle is perfectly complemented by the new range.

The Yaris is more powerful than ever before and now out in three new super smart models – the Yaris, GR Yaris and Yaris Cross - and it really is a tough choice as to which might be the best of them.  And with Toyota leading the charge in a green revolution, Hybrid technology is now available in a Yaris, upping the ante in the fuel efficiency stakes.  

Whether you are young (or young at heart) with a busy social life or just looking for the safest, most reliable and fuel efficient runabout you can find, the new Toyota Yaris is very hard to beat.  It is definitely worth taking any one of them (or all of them) for a trial spin on the Sunshine Coast and really put them to the test.

GR Yaris - performance and sporty good looks

Toyota had a well deserved name for performance in the motorsports arena and has been making ground in reviving their motor rally reputation in recent years.  If you want to get the blood pumping with some motorsport feels, then the GR Yaris is for you.  This hot little hatch is not just about looking sporty with its 18inch wheels, low roofline and coupe profile.  The Toyota GR Yaris is a machine built for serious performance.  This lightweight powerhouse will make light work of winding Sunshine Coast hills, powering up and cornering like the pro it is.  

The Toyota GR Yaris features GR-Four AWD, rear double wishbone suspension, a 6 speed manual intelligent gearbox and performance braking to handle the 1.6L Turbo engine with its truly impressive 156kW/tonne power-to-weight ratio.  Packed with safety features and necessary modern comforts like Apple Carplay or Android Auto, JBL speakers and active noise control, the GR Yaris has been designed completely around the driver experience.  

Itching to get behind the wheel of a Yaris GR?  Ken Mills Toyota is your Toyota Yaris Sunshine Coast Dealership and anyone on the team would jump at the opportunity to get out on the road and show you around this little sports machine.

Yaris Cross - compact with that SUV feel

The beauty of living on the Sunshine Coast is the ease with which you can take advantage of the recreational and leisure lifestyle – and you need a car that helps you do that.  With the many hours that everyday Australians spend on the road, it shouldn’t be surprising that we have, as a nation, developed a bit of an obsession with the comfort of SUV style vehicles - matched by a healthy respect for cost efficient, easy to handle, small cars.  Toyota has been listening and has answered the demand with the all new compact SUV Toyota Yaris Cross.  Compact with extra height for comfort and added visibility on your next adventure, the Toyota Yaris Cross is the small car with a roomy interior that can handle extra passengers - and their gear! 

Sunshine Coast living is all about daily life balance.  Whether it is zipping about the city traffic or heading off on a weekend adventure in regional Queensland, you won’t begrudge spending your time in the Toyota Yaris Cross.  With the impressive Toyota Hybrid technology, the Yaris Cross Hybrid SUV has the instant responsiveness of an electric motor and the power you need on the open road with a petrol engine.  You will find the Yaris Cross has the perfect balance of small car manoeuvre-ability and efficiency, with generous interior space for the comfort and convenience of a SUV.  Split fold rear seats, 390L of cargo space and a power tailgate with a kick sensor ensures packing the car is a breeze – whether it is a small grocery run or heading out for a day on the golf course.  

If you thought that extra size and comfort has to come at an extra big cost in terms of fuel efficiency and safety, Toyota strives to challenge those ideas.  Safety is always number one priority at Toyota, and the Yaris Cross comes loaded with safety features – Pre-Collision Safety System, Road Sign Assist, Active Cruise Control, 8 Airbags, Reversing Camera, Intersection Safety and the new Connected Hub that can notify Toyota Emergency Assistance in the event of an accident – even if you can’t reach your phone.  With the same fuel economy of 5.4L/100km as the Yaris Ascent Sport in the petrol option and a tiny 0.5L/100km difference between the Hybrid options, the Yaris Cross is uncompromising when it comes to maintaining small car efficiency.

This handy little compact SUV comes loaded with all the style, comfort and performance you have come to expect from Toyota and we feel confident the Yaris Cross is sure to become an Aussie coastal living favourite.  Think it’s too good to be true? Take a test drive and try before you buy with Ken Mills Toyota.

Toyota Yaris - the stylish pocket rocket

Toyota has built its name on being leaders in design and engineering.  There is nothing worse than a car you can’t rely on to get you safely from A to B, except maybe an UGLY car that won’t get you home safely!  And the Toyota Yaris range won’t let you down, ticking all the right boxes – safety, space, sporty good looks and solid green credentials with the super efficient 3.3L/100km fuel economy of a Toyota Hybrid system.

The compact little Yaris hatch comes with the safety and convenience you expect of the bigger, more expensive Toyota models.  And while it looks like a city limits only car, you will be surprised by the Yaris versatility – pack the family and all their gear in for a fun day at the beach, or lay the rear seats down and you would be amazed what will fit in (seriously, it’s like the Tardis with the extra underboot storage), you can even pop some optional roof racks on to take the bicycle with you.  Hit the open road in a Toyota Yaris, with enviable fuel efficiency and the peace of mind that your car is fitted with the most advanced Toyota Safety Sense technology available in Australia.

A reliable runabout needs to meet your everyday Sunshine Coast demands but it does not have to be boring.  The Toyota Yaris proves great things come in small packages with the sporty design of the Yaris Ascent Sport, Yaris SX and Yaris ZR variants.  Choose from 12 great colours and let your personality shine with some cool optional extra accessories.  Get on board with the green revolution and choose the Hybrid option – its fuel efficiency will save you money (and the environment) in the long run!

Compact, but made with modern conveniences

With world class safety features like pre-collision safety system (including day/night pedestrian and day only cyclist detection and intersection turn assist), road sign assist, lane trace assist, active cruise control, reversing cameras and 8 SRS airbags as standard in the Yaris, you can be confident that safety is Toyota’s number one priority.  So whether you are attempting to manoeuvre yourself into the very last car park at the beach, or navigating the winding backroads of the Sunshine Coast, you can be assured that you are equipped with the latest in safety technology when you are driving a Toyota Yaris.

Just because safety is important does not mean the other modern conveniences have been forgotten – a 7” touch screen multimedia console with Apple Carplay/Android Auto, a big sound with 6 premium speakers and USB charging ports are also standard.

The whole world is trying to move towards a greener tomorrow.  Toyota lead the world in developing Hybrid technology for mass production and has proven its reliability in the market in the 20 years since.  We could go on and on about the fuel efficiency and CO2 emission reductions of the compact Yaris Hybrids and show you our Toyota comparison tables, but don’t just take our word for it.  You can use the Australian Government’s Green Vehicle Guide to check out and compare all vehicles on the Australian market.
