2012 Toyota Yaris To Debut At...Lollapalooza

August 3, 2011

While the new Toyota Yaris has been revealed in other markets, the U.S. has had to wait. The waiting will end soon: Toyota announced on its Facebook fan page that the new 2012 Yaris will make its debut at Lollapalooza.

We've seen the spy shots, and heard the rumors of a hybrid model, but to this point nothing has been confirmed in the way of specifications or pricing for the new Yaris. It's expected to launch with a 1.3-liter four-cylinder engine and a manual transmission standard, with an automatic optional.

The 2012 Yaris launched with a key emphasis on infotainment technology in Europe, and the U.S. version should be no different. Toyota's Touch & Go infotainment system features a 6.1-inch touchscreen which controls everything from mobile apps to the navigation system on Euro models, and it seems likely some infotainment system will bow on the American-market version, too.

Stay tuned for further details regarding the 2012 Toyota Yaris.
