The Yaris Edition is based on entry-level T2 trim and comes with a 1.0-litre VVT-I petrol engine and a five-speed manual gearbox as standard.

Extra kit includes 15-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured door mirrors and handles, front foglamps, rear privacy glass, chrome boot trim and a leather-trimmed gearknob. Air-conditioning is available as an option.

Prices for Edition models start at 11,695; a 1060 premium over T2 models.
