The 2018 Toyota Yaris hatchback will be available this summer, following its debut at the 2017 New York International Auto Show in April.

The affordable Yaris will be equipped with several driver-assist technologies, according to the automaker. This includes Toyota's Pre-Collision System, Lane Departure Alert, and Automatic High Beams. It will also feature three-spoke steer wheel with audio controls and a speedometer, tachometer and fuel gauge; LCD display with odometer, tripmeters, outside temperature, current/average fuel economy, distance to empty meter, and more.

For audio upgrades, the L and LE grades of the hatchback will be equipped standard with the same Entune Audio system available on many other Toyota models. The Entune Multimedia Bundle consists of a 6.1-inch touch-screen display, six speakers, auxiliary audio jack, and more. The 2018 Yaris also comes with a 7-inch high resolution touch-screen display, three-month complimentary SiriusXM Trial, and more.
