Toyota Yaris – Smart Entry and Keyless Go

The new Toyota Yaris is the perfect partner for your busy life, with Smart Entry and Keyless Go making it quicker and easier to simply jump in and get going.

Forget rummaging around in your bag, or checking every pocket on your person – simply choose the Smart Pack when buying the Yaris Excel and away you go. It’s the smart thing to do, as our short film demonstrates:

Smart Entry and Keyless Go allows you to keep the key safe in your bag or pocket, as the car will automatically detect the key’s presence and unlock when you pull the door handle.

From there, a simple press of the ‘Power’ button will start the car and you can easily drive away. And when you reach your destination, close the door and briefly touch the lock sensor on the door handle to lock the Yaris.

The system even works with the rear hatch – simply press the main button to unlock the door, and a smaller lock button to lock it.

Toyota’s Smart Entry and Keyless Go system is just another example of how the compact Yaris is the ideal car for the modern motorist. For more information on the new Toyota Yaris, visit the Toyota UK website or explore more features of the Yaris below.

  1. Hi,

    Just purchased a 2018 Yaris Excel Hybrid. How can I tell if I got Smart Entry.
    The door unlock with the remote and lock with the remote but not by touching the handle.
    If it does not come with smart entry is it possible to add it to my yaris by toyota.



  2. Hello, I have a 2010 Urban cruiser with keyless entry and push button start . how do I get a spare fob? What info is needed and how much does it cost

  3. Hi Suleman,
    Thanks for getting in touch. We hope you’re still loving your Yaris!
    Unfortunately keyless entry is not a feature that can be retrofitted.

  4. A red light flashed on the dashboard For about 4 seconds but couldn’t see what it was. It’s a Toyota Yaris hybrid auto keyless 2020 model (U.K.)

    What does it mean

  5. I am moving so I packed my car with all my belongings and now the car won’t lock it beeps all the doors are fully locked and secured so not sure. Every time I lock it it beeps and opens back

    1. Hi Christine,

      Sorry about this. We know it’s a bit late now! It might have been because the vehicle’s other key was inside the vehicle. As you have all your belongings in the car, this seems like the most likely reason.

      Let us know if you managed to sort it.


  6. I lost my remote but still have the key. I can get into my car but is there anyway I can start it without the remote?

  7. Can you tell me if the keyless fob signal can be boosted or if it becomes inactive and goes Into a sleep mode when not in use? As a security feature.

    1. Hi,

      The new Yaris has a key fob battery saving function which prevents the Smart Entry system from being used. There are other solutions – key can be kept in a signal blocking box or pouch for example.
