Toyota Yaris service intervals: all models covered

If you own a Toyota Yaris, then it will need regular servicing to help keep it in the best shape. Here we list Toyota Yaris service intervals for each generation of the car. We highlight the different sizes and types of engine officially sold in UK Toyota dealers to help you know when your Toyota Yaris needs servicing.

These intervals are for models of Toyota Yaris that were sold via the official UK Toyota dealer network. If you drive a grey import version of the Yaris, some of which were known as the Toyota Vitz up until 2019, then this will be a useful reference for your car, too.

First generation Toyota Yaris Mk1 service intervals

Years: 1999-2005

The first-generation Toyota Yaris was known internally by the model code XP10, and the car was sold as the Vitz in Japan, or the Echo in North America and Australia. In the UK, the Toyota Yaris was initially sold with 1.0 or 1.3-litre petrol engines, while a 1.5-litre petrol arrived with the Yaris T-Sport from 2001. A 1.4 D4-D diesel was also sold in the UK from 2002 until sales finished in 2005.

  • 1.0 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.3 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.5 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.4 diesel: Annually/10,000 miles

Years: 2005-2011

Called the XP90 internally, the Toyota Yaris Mk2 arrived in the UK in 2005, and with it came slightly revised engines. The 1.0 here is a three-cylinder, and while the old car’s 1.3 was initially carried over, it was replaced by a more modern 1.33 in 2009. The 1.4 D4-D diesel was also offered again, while another sporty model, the Yaris TS, came with a 1.8-litre petrol engine in 2007.

  • 1.0 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.3 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.33 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.4 diesel: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.8 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles

Years: 2011-2020

The XP130 generation Toyota Yaris was the first to be offered with a 1.5 hybrid powertrain, alongside regular 1.0 and 1.33 petrol versions and the 1.4 diesel, although the latter wasn’t available through the car’s entire production run. Later in its life, the Yaris GRMN was launched in 2017 with a 1.8 supercharged petrol engine.

  • 1.0 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.33 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.4 diesel: Annually/10,000 miles

  • 1.8 supercharged petrol: Annually/10,000 miles

Fourth generation Toyota Yaris Mk4 service intervals

Years: 2020 onwards

The current Toyota Yaris was launched in 2020, and is known within Toyota as the XP210. The main mechanical change from its predecessors is that the Yaris is now hybrid only, with no petrol or diesel versions offered. All models feature the same set-up of a 1.5-litre three-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor and compact battery providing assistance.

  • 1.5 hybrid petrol: Annually/10,000 miles

Other Toyota Yaris models

As well as the standard supermini, the Yaris name has also been given to other compact models that use similar running gear. Here we highlight the service intervals for those, too.

Toyota Yaris Verso service intervals

Years: 1998-2005

The Yaris Verso was based on the first-generation Yaris XP10, and added a longer wheelbase and boxy rear end to create a small MPV. In Japan, the Yaris Verso was known as the Toyota Fun Cargo. UK cars came with a 1.3-litre petrol engine, while a 1.4 D4-D diesel was offered from 2001 onwards.

  • 1.3 petrol: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.4 diesel: Annually/10,000 miles

Toyota GR Yaris service intervals

Years: 2020 onwards

The high-performance version of the current Yaris is different enough to be considered a separate model. It has a unique three-door body and a 268hp 1.6 turbo petrol engine with manual gearbox and four-wheel drive. Thanks to its rally-focused character, its service intervals are more frequent than they are for the standard Yaris.

In addition, the GR Yaris is subject to a ‘Safety Check’ every six months. As of 2022, this costs £50, unless it coincides with the car’s service, in which case there’s no extra cost.

  • 1.6 turbo petrol: Annually/6,000 miles

Toyota Yaris Cross service intervals

Toyota Yaris Cross service intervals

Years: 2021 onwards

The small SUV variant of the Yaris was launched 12 months after the XP210 supermini, and features a variation of the platform used by that car. That means it has the same hybrid tech under the skin, and service intervals that are identical to the supermini’s.

  • 1.5 hybrid 2WD: Annually/10,000 miles
  • 1.5 hybrid AWD: Annually/10,000 miles

  1. Good afternnon

    Is the 6 month safety check compulsory to qualify for the 10 year relax warranty or does the annual service fulfill the requirement on a September 2021 registered GR Yaris

    1. Hi Darren,
      Thanks for your comment.
      The 6 month safety check only applies when combined with 12 months service to qualify for Relax.
      If the 6 month safety check is not done, it depends very much on the component failure and by not doing the safety service did this influence the failure.
      The safety check is more focused on safety like brakes for example, which will be more impacted especially if used on track days verse normal general road use.
      We hope this helps.
      Thanks.

  2. Hi Toyota,
    My new Yaris has had another hybrid malfunction while driving on a highway. Car has been with the dealership for two weeks now and I’ve just been informed that replacement for the transmission will be delivered on March 31st. Thus I will not get the car back until early April. On top of this, the car has been recalled twice (seatbelts and breaks) in less than a year. People choose Toyota for their (alleged) reliability, not for having two recalls, two hybrid malfunctions, and not getting to using their car for months. Not my first Toyota, but most likely my last one. L.

    1. Hi there,
      We are really sorry to hear about the inconvenience this has caused.
      At Toyota, our customer’s safety is paramount, so recalls may happen from time to time.
      We hope you are back behind the wheel of your Yaris soon.
      If there is anything else we can do to help, please let us know.
      Thanks.

  3. I have a Toyota yaris 07 plate automatic,
    The reverse camera has stopped working and just has a warning exclamation mark in the screen, please can anyone give an explanation on how to fix this.

    1. Hi, thanks for your comment.

      We’re sorry to hear that you are having problems with your reversing camera. Please get in touch with your local Toyota Centre directly, the team there will be able to take a look at this in person and investigate the cause of the issue.

      Thanks.

  4. Hi Toyota
    I have a 2021 Yaris Dynamic and it’s frankly, a wonderful car in so many ways that I find it almost impossible to fault. However, the entertainment system is very dull indeed – it works OK and I have the JBL speakers and amp but the interface is drab. I notice the Yaris Cross has the updated system but I wondered if there will be an update to the version I have? By way of a routine download etc? The hardware is fine but the software needs a refresh.
