    Premium Members can receive the following discount: 10% discount off MRRP (usually £79.95 Generation 2 - £39.95 ITire Air) How does it work? The wireless system includes a stylish windscreen-mounted solar-powered LCD screen which displays tyre pressures in psi or bar. If the device detects a tyre in distress through loss of pressure, fast leakage or an increase in temperature – often the sign of an impending tyre blowout – the driver is alerted, and the affected tyre identified on the screen. Our unique overnight mode will even inform you of a low-pressure tyre before you depart on your journey. We’re confident you won’t find a comparable product which is as affordable, easy to fit or more accurate – not to mention backed by one of the world’s most reputable brands.
  2. Toyota’s worldwide motorsport programme for 2019 encompasses a wealth of different competitions, from Le Mans and the World Rally Championship to grass-roots competitions for enthusiasts. At every level, the focus is on celebrating the enjoyment of motor racing, creating new fans and using the experience gained on the race track to help design and engineer ever-better cars for the road. Toyota Gazoo Racing, the umbrella organisation for Toyota’s principal motorsport activities, continue to compete in top-level series including the FIA World Endurance Championship (including the Le Mans 24 Hours) and the FIA World Rally Championship. They are currently contesting the 2018-2019 WEC series and have confirmed they will continue in the competition for the 2019-2020 season. In 2018 the team succeeded in winning the Le Mans 24 Hours for Toyota for the first time. Toyota Gazoo World Rally Team are again fielding three Yaris WRC cars and are seeking to defend the manufacturers’ title they won last year. This year has already started well for Toyota with overall victory in the Dakar rally for Toyota Gazoo Racing South Africa with a Hilux driven by Nasser Al Attiyah and Mathieu Baumel, plus class victories for Team Land Cruiser Toyota Auto Body (production vehicle) and Hino Team Sugawara (trucks less than 10-litre engine capacity). Toyota remains a front-running competitor in North America’s NASCAR series, fielding the Camry saloon in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup and giving the new Toyota GR Supra its debut in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. The Tundra pick-up will be in action in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series. Supra will also feature at the Nürburgring 24 Hours in June, bringing the famous sports car name back to the race for the first time in 17 years. Many other race and rally series will feature official Toyota entries, including Japan’s Super GT championship, the Japan Super Formula, the Japanese Rally Championship and popular one-make series for Yaris and GT86 drivers.

  4. The style choice is street-smart or sporting for two new additions to the Toyota Yaris line-up for 2019. The new Y20 celebrates the supermini’s 20th anniversary, while the hot-looking GR Sport is inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatch Both versions take their place in a revised Yaris range, which continues to offer the established Active, Icon, Icon Tech and Excel grades – the latter with enhanced equipment specifications. Yaris remains unique in the supermini market in offering customers the fuel-efficient, low emissions and refined performance of a self-charging full hybrid powertrain. Yaris Y20 The introduction of the new Yaris Y20 is led by a limited edition version distinguished by a bi-tone paint design featuring the original gold metallic colour Toyota used to launch the original Yaris model in 1998. This is combined with a contemporary dark grey finish for the roof, pillars and door mirror housings. Just 100 cars are available for UK customers. Beyond this special version, the Y20 grade will be central to the Yaris range, offering customers a strong combination of style and equipment features, including a bi-tone finish as standard, with a choice of gold, black, silver or white bodywork. The impact of the car’s styling is heightened by rear privacy glass, 16-inch alloy wheels with a machined/dark grey contrast finish and dark grey fog light surrounds, side sills and front grille, plus Y20 badging. The smart dark grey theme is picked up in the cabin with trim detailing on the steering wheel and centre console. This contrasts with a satin finish for the shift lever surround, air vents and audio speaker trims. The front sport seats have a dark and light grey upholstery with silver grey edging to the head restraints, seatbacks and cushions. The front seats are decorated with the Y20 logo; there is also a Y20 badge on the left side of the dashboard. The general specification matches that of the Icon grade (details below). Yaris GR Sport Inspired by the exclusive Yaris GRMN performance hatchback, the new Yaris GR Sport brings more sporting style and handling to Toyota’s supermini range and is another example of the motorsports success of Toyota Gazoo Racing – winners of both the Le Mans 24 Hours and the World Rally Championship’s manufacturers’ crown in 2018 – is feeding into a new generation of exciting road-going cars. The modifications are focused on the suspension, giving the car engaging handling and responsiveness. It uses Sachs Performance shock absorbers similar to those fitted to the GRMN and a solid (rather than hollow) anti-roll bar to gain extra rigidity. The car has a sporting stance, too, with suspension lowered by 15mm and the body sitting 9mm closer to the ground. The black 17-inch cast alloy wheels are exclusive to the GR Sport, but are fitted with the same Bridgestone Potenza RE50 205/45R17 tyres as the GRMN model. The exterior styling follows that of the Yaris GRMN, including a black bi-tone roof with rear spoiler. There are piano black door mouldings, a black honeycomb grille, black door mirror housings and black front fog light surrounds. The headlights are unique to the GR Sport, with black interior detailing. Dark-tinted rear privacy glass is also fitted as standard, together with GR badging. Optional red decals can be added to the front lip and the top line of the lower rear bumper to generate extra sporty visual appeal. In the cabin the sporting character is clear to see in the supportive GR-branded sports seats, with Ultrasuede seatbacks and cushions. The small-diameter three-spoke steering wheel is shared with the Toyota GT86 coupe and there is a black headlining. Every journey begins with a GR animation on the TFT multi-information display when the engine is started. The black floor mats carry the GR logo as well, and feature contrast silver edging. The GR Sport is exclusively a five-door model, powered by Yaris’s standard 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain. Yaris Icon Tech and Excel For 2019, the Yaris Icon Tech has a revised equipment specification that includes rear parking sensors in place of the previous front sensor system. Toyota Touch 2 with Go, including navigation, remains a key feature of the Icon Tech. This model is available with all powertrain options: 1.0 and 1.5-litre petrol manual, 1.5-litre petrol CVT automatic and 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid. Where the Yaris Excel is concerned, the model becomes exclusively a self-charging hybrid version. New features include smart entry and door mirrors with an auto-folding function. This increases the car’s already impressive equipment portfolio, which boasts 16-inch black/machined alloys, automatic air conditioning, LED rear lights and daytime running lights, power windows front and rear, black side sills and part-leather seat upholstery. A panoramic roof option is also available. Yaris Active and Icon The entry-level Yaris Active is unchanged from 2018. Available with either a 1.0-litre petrol or 1.5-litre self-charging hybrid powertrain, it comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense (Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert and Road Sign Assist), rain-sensing wipers, power-adjustable heated door mirrors and front power windows. The Icon grade models (1.0 and 1.5-litre manual, 1.5-litre petrol automatic and 1.5-litre hybrid) add 15-inch alloy wheels, cruise control with automatic speed limiter, front fog lights, Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with DAB, reversing camera, leather steering wheel and 4.2-inch colour TFT multi-information display. The Toyota Safety Sense package further includes Automatic High Beam, while the hybrid version also comes with automatic air conditioning, push-button start and leather parking brake trim. These equipment features are also included in the new Yaris Y20 specification.
