Sleeker and bolder in style, the new Toyota Yaris arrives as a distinct subcompact vehicle that boasts an impressive list of cutting-edge technology with exceptional driving dynamics.
For 2021, the Toyota Yaris comes with a 1.6-litre three-cylinder engine that propels both the base and GR variants. The Cross X Hybrid puts out 91 PS and a 120 Nm max torque through an E-CVT transmission, while the GR comes with 268hp and 370Nm via a smooth six-speed manual transmission.
Incorporating aesthetics and technology, Yaris remains unrivalled with the combination of upscale appearance and dynamic engine performance. It also features the latest Toyota Safety Sense providing a world-class level of reliability.
Toyota Yaris Special Features
Introducing a hassle-free entry and easy starting of the engine, the Toyota Yaris comes with a standard feature of the Smart Entry & Push Start System.
You don’t necessarily need your keys in your hand. As long as it’s somewhere on your body and close to the vehicle, it can assist in locking and unlocking front and side doors, including the rear doors.
3-Spoke Steering Wheel
Once you get behind the wheels, you fully take control of the tunes without missing a beat. The 3-speed steering wheel finished in Urethane offers a comfortable yet firmer grip with the correct '3-9' position, resulting in a much-relaxed position while driving.
Get updated wherever you go with the Toyota Yaris’ 4.2-inch multi-information display located on the instrument panel. It offers the driver a visual collection of vehicle information and messages within the driver’s field of vision to avoid any form of distraction.
7-inch Multimedia Display
Providing a more fun ambience inside the cabin, the Toyota Yaris comes with CarPlay and Android Auto system. It comprises user-friendly in-car infotainment and allows you to access smartphone features and voice control features instantly. Directly controlled via touch-sensitive screen or opt for the control knob between front seats.
Toyota Safety Sense
Toyota Safety Sense is an active driver and safety assistance package that delivers unparalleled reliability and performance using a laser radar unit and a single-lens camera.
With a new dynamic safety approach, this feature comprises Pre-Collision System (PCS), Lane Tracing Assist (LTA), and the Automatic High Beam (AHB).
JBL Sound System
Available on selected variants, the JBL Sound System delivers a crisp and clear sound especially tailored for the all-new Toyota Yaris. It perfectly matched the design and individual nature of your Yaris GR and giving you exceptional clarity and depth music.
Toyota Yaris Interior
Automatic climate control allows you to configure your most used cabin temperature setting with its independent temperature control in the front and rear seats.
It replaces toggling between temperature controls and fan speeds with automatic climate adjustment, initiated by pressing the Auto button on your centre controls.
Split-folding Rear Seats
With the split-folding rear seats, you will be surprised by how much you can arrange your cabin seats and how many things you can fit in. It provides options for folding the entire back seat or partially folding down the seats in 60:40-split.
Thus, allowing you to carry numerous passengers and effortlessly load bulky items.
The 12V power socket is ideal for low-powered gadgets and other devices that may accompany you on trips.
This accessory socket is waterproof and dustproof through a rubber cover, protects the internal circuit, and effectively improves its lifespan. This accessory socket is available for selected variants only.
SRS Airbag Package
Delivering safety on a different level, Toyota Yaris features an SRS Airbag Package that supplements and enhances the seat belt system and improves passenger safety.
These airbags deploy at the speed of 100 to 300 km/h. The airbag of the driver spreads from the steering wheel and the front passengers from the dashboard.
You don’t need to worry, bringing in drinks inside the Toyota Yaris as it includes a cup holder for both front passengers located between the driver and front passenger.
The cup holder keeps your cups, bottles, and glasses secure and within reach, allowing you to focus on the road, reducing accident risks.
ISOFIX provides you with a two-lower-loop ISOFIX anchor per place to which you can tie your child’s seat and safeguard your child. When the child’s seat is in a forward-faced position, a top tether anchor is usefully applied.
Exterior of the Toyota Yaris
Daytime Running Lamp
Strengthening your car’s presence even in broad daylight, the LED Daytime Running Lamps, otherwise known as LED DRL, emits low automotive lighting of white, yellow, or amber lighting upfront.
It automatically operates when you start the engine and, compared to conventional lights, uses a brighter light and lesser energy.
Resin-covered Steel Wheels
To keep you in style, Toyota Yaris models come in 16-inch/18-inch steel wheels (depending on variant) that fully match the car’s dynamism.
It also includes a full resin cap covering the central part of the wheel, working as clever protection from rusting and damage of the bearings from random impacts with road debris.
At the rear of the Toyota Yaris displays a more aggressive and athletic aura. It is equipped with a rear spoiler that serves not only for aesthetics but also to improve the car’s dynamic performance.
It’s a practical automotive design that provides downforce to intensify the car’s grip and brace onto the road for better cornering, especially at high speeds
Behind the Yaris models are LED taillights equipped to upgrade your safety when driving at night by providing more visible lighting. Drivers trailing behind your car can easily see the small and bright glittering lights supplied by the LED taillights’ light bulb system.
With the rearview camera equipped at the back of the car, reverse parking and manoeuvring are considerably more manageable and smoother. It automatically activates and displays the vehicle’s area with dynamic guidelines on the central monitor once you engage the reverse gear.
Auto Electric Retractable Mirror
When you switch ON the engine, you can conveniently adjust the exterior mirrors with a remote control switch. These body-coloured door mirrors include folding/unfolding and tilting options to optimize the driver’s view from the side and behind the vehicle. It also features LED indicators on the side mirrors, improving communication on the road, and driving safety.

Toyota Yaris Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most common questions and answers regarding purchasing a new Toyota Yaris from us.
What is VAC-Ready?
VAC stands for ‘Vitas Approval Code‘. It is a document that is issued by the Land Transport Authority that certifies that a car has passed all regulatory tests, inspections and is ready for registration to be used on Singapore’s roads. In the Parallel Importer industry, this code gives peace of mind to buyers as it ensures that the exact vehicle that buyers are purchasing has already undergone testing for approval.
This also means that the vehicle is physically available and ready in Singapore for delivery. All that’s left is to register the COE, and it can be immediately used on the roads.
When you purchase from any parallel importer in Singapore, it’s important you check that they have VAC-Ready stock, so it cuts down on any waiting time or uncertainty.
Some parallel importers in the past, unfortunately, have been unable to deliver vehicles, or in worst-case scenarios, shut down and walked away with customer deposits.
We register and deliver well over a hundred new vehicles every month and have had a 100% delivery rate for the past 30 years since 1989.
What does ‘Parallel Import’ Mean?
Parallel imported cars are vehicles shipped straight from their brand’s origin country and then sold in other countries. Parallel Importers, also known as PIs, are alternate retailers and dealers of various brands of vehicles. Often Parallel Importers carry a wide selection of brands and models.
In terms of operations, there’s little difference between a parallel importer and an authorized distributor. Both entities import cars from the same countries or from where the manufacturer is located.
Vehicles from authorized distributors tend to cost more as they carry a higher overhead than parallel importers. These overheads include fancy showrooms, a much larger payroll, advertising and media costs, and more.
The cars themselves typically don’t differ in terms of specifications and options. Here at VINCAR, we offer vehicles directly from their origin countries at competitive prices while passing on significant customer savings. We can also provide and tailor flexible financing plans, services, and value-added options to owners while ensuring we can provide competent technical support for our customer’s cars.
Unlike Authorised Dealers, we are a lot more flexible in our approach to the type and brand of vehicle you wish to own under one brand experience.
Over 30% of new car purchases at VINCAR every year are existing customers looking to upgrade or replace their vehicles, and we are happy to provide a hassle-free seamless experience every time.
What Toyota Yaris Models do you carry?
Models not listed here may not be readily available and will require some time to be brought into the country (30-45 days). If you are keen on a vehicle that’s not listed here, just ask us – and we’ll do our best glad to make it happen.

We import hundreds of vehicles every month and are familiar with all customs regulations, documentation, approvals, logistics, restrictions, and registration procedures.
When can I expect to receive my car when I order it?
The fastest we have ever registered and delivered a new vehicle is within seven working days. This is assuming all LTA inspections, financing, and insurance approvals can be processed without any delays.
The typical delivery period for most new car deliveries is within 10-14 days. If your preferred vehicle is not in Singapore yet, it may take between 30-45 days for it to arrive. Contact us or your appointed relationship manager for more details before booking your next vehicle.
I need a vehicle urgently from overseas, can you speed up the process?
Sure, we provide priority air-freight shipment for some vehicles regularly for some of our clientele. This service will incur additional fees. Contact your relationship manager for more details regarding delivery estimates.
Can you import a used Toyota Yaris from overseas for me?

There are some regulations regarding importing used vehicles, primarily considering that there are shipping and customs costs – including a S$10,000 surcharge (by customs).
There is also a 20% excise duty waved on the vehicle’s cost for passenger and vintage cars. You may also need to pay compliance fees to ensure the vehicle passes LTA’s regulations. These may include tinted windows, unapproved strobes, fittings, etc.
I saw a car listed for sale on an overseas website in Japan, / United Kingdom / Hong Kong, etc. Can you help me import it in?
Yes, we can assist you with the purchase and import of the vehicle. We can confidently manage all customs documentation, processing, and logistic matters about the car being brought into Singapore. Please note a service fee will apply on top of the vehicle costs. Other fees may apply.
Contact us for a quotation concerning this service.
Can I pre-order a model which is not released yet?
Yes, we can. We can place your order on our priority list and purchase the first vehicle available (to your specifications) the moment it is made available.
Can I utilize a Toyota Yaris for private hire purposes (Grab Car Rental or Gojek)?
No, we do not have Toyota Yaris for Grab Car Rentals. We recommend that you visit our Grab Car Rental Page for more information and details about the type and model of vehicle you can utilize for Grab Car Rental usage.

Unfortunately, at this time, we do not provide short-term rental services.
Can I lease a Toyota Yaris under my name (or company)?
Yes, we can. You can lease your next Toyota Yaris with use under your name or Corporate/company entity. Our Car Leasing programs are for a minimum of 12 months. Most car leases taken up by our clientele are between 12-36 months.

What should I do if there is a problem (technical issue / global recall issue) with my car within the warranty period?
Just bring your Toyota Yaris back to us, and we will be able to repair or service it at our dedicated in-house servicing centre.

Upholstery, fittings, and accessories can differ from model to model. We advise that you ask your relationship manager about the available options and accessories that come with your purchase. All items will be indicated clearly in your sales agreement.
Can you provide a 100% loan for your Toyota Yaris?
No. The maximum loan amount as per financing regulations set by the Monetary Authority of Singapore is 70% if the vehicle’s open market value is less than S$20,000 or 60% if the vehicle’s open market value is more than $20,000.
For more details, you can read this article “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans. “
Can you provide 10-Year financing loan tenure for your Toyota Yaris?
No. The maximum loan tenure is seven years for private passenger vehicles and up to 10 years for private hire vehicles
Other dealers and parallel importers are offering Zero-Money Down, 10-Year financing, and services for their cars. Why can’t you?
As the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true – it usually is. Some dealerships, especially newer and smaller parallel importers, often dangle enticing deals, discounts, and offers on social media to entice buyers to contact them.
Often such schemes lead to disappointment as the dealer may require a high down-payment amount or require the user to ‘top-up’ for COE, or quote a COE amount that is not realistically biddable.
Here’s an example. A dealer advertises a car price that is $15,000 below standard market rates. After contacting the dealer – he/she will say that the expected COE price is expected to be at X amount (which is lower than the average), and at this point, you will be pressured to leave a deposit with the dealer to secure your booking at this ‘special’ price.
When the upcoming COE exercise is completed, and COE prices are nowhere near the promised rate, the dealer will ask you to top up more to register your car, and else you would forfeit your booking deposit. We have seen many such examples over the years by many unscrupulous individuals and companies.
Any advertisements you see on Social Media from other dealers promising 10-Year Financing and Zero money down are also a direct violation of the Monetary Authority Of Singapore (MAS)’s regulations on “Rules for Motor Vehicle Loans. “
I see similarly named car dealerships/parallel importers in Singapore. Are they related to you?
VINCAR Pte Ltd operates under one single brand name, with only one subsidiary (VINCAR Rental and Leasing Pte Ltd).
We are aware of other parallel importers who often set up Facebook Pages and advertisements with similar-sounding names and derivatives to capitalize on our brand name.
This practice, unfortunately, leads to confusion for new car buyers who get tricked into a bait-and-switch situation.
If you have previously contacted such entities, a quick way to check is to ask if ‘XXX’ company is named ‘XXX’. If the salesman on the line refuses to answer, dodges the question, or asks you to just visit the showroom address – without providing the company’s name, do be wary.
If the showroom you have visited does not match the original brand name introduced to you, take it as a big red flag. If these companies are willing to mislead you to visit them with a different name, they are likely not going to be trustworthy with other affairs.
Can I test-drive a car before I commit?
For certain models and subject to vehicle availability, we may allow test drives. Please check with your relationship manager or contact us first.
What kind of warranty do I get?
All new vehicles sold by VINCAR by default comes with a 5-year or 100,000km mileage warranty – whichever comes first. Your vehicle’s warranty can be extended to 10 years.
Please check with the sales agreement to see all terms and conditions regarding warranty and service details. All vehicles are serviced in-house at our dedicated car servicing centre located at 24 Leng Kee Road.
Does the warranty cover maintenance?
Typically, vehicle warranties do not cover maintenance fees as they are considered as two separate items. However, during our promotional periods, we may include complimentary service packages.
Check with our sales department for more information regarding active promotions or packages.
Can I purchase an extended warranty from VINCAR?
Yes, subject to terms and conditions. Do check in with our sales team to see what active extended warranty packages we have at the moment that we can assist you with.
Can you deliver the vehicle directly to my home or office address after purchase?
Yes, we can. Contact your sales representative for more details.
Where are your showrooms located?
We have showrooms in 3 locations across Singapore. Two of them are in the Leng Kee Location, 1 in the East (Ubi).
Our Flagship showroom is located at 24 Leng Kee Road, 159096.
Our Pre-Owned showroom is at 237 Alexandra Rd, The Alexcier, Singapore 159929.
Our Ubi showroom is at 61 Ubi Avenue 2 #02-16/17 Automobile Megamart Singapore 408898.
