2016 Toyota Yaris Orange Edition – a zesty twist

The Toyota Yaris Orange Edition was a special edition supermini launched in 2016. It was defined by its zesty Orange Twist metallic paint, plus a host of style and equipment features inside and out.

It was an unmistakeable addition to the range of the third-generation Yaris. It joined the line-up as Toyota celebrates three million Yaris having been built at its Valenciennes plant in northern France since production started in 2001.

The Toyota Yaris Orange Edition’s bright bodywork strikes a strong contrast with black detailing, including the door mirror casings, rear pillar (creating a floating roof effect) and side sills, which feature an additional chrome flash. The effect is further heightened by a matt black finish for the honeycomb and a smart set of 16-inch machined-face alloys.

Rear privacy glass is provided as standard, together with a fixed Skyview panoramic roof.

In the cabin of the Toyota Yaris Orange Edition there is a black-on-black theme: the black headlining and instrument panel and new black and grey cloth upholstery matched by piano black finishes for the air vents, centre console and gear knob. The black carpet mats are hemmed with orange stitching.

The specification was based on the Yaris Icon at the time, but added plenty of appealing extras, including cruise control, automatic air conditioning (in the hybrid model), LED rear lights and a rear spoiler.

Other features included the Toyota Touch 2 multimedia system with touchscreen control, reversing camera, projector headlights, LED daytime running lights, front fog lights with chrome surrounds and power windows front and rear.

The five-door Toyota Yaris Orange Edition was available with three highly efficient engine choices: 1.33 VVT-i petrol with six-speed manual or CVT automatic gearbox; 1.4 D-4D diesel with manual transmission; and 1.5 VVT-i petrol hybrid.

  1. Hi Toyota,

    Absolutely disappointed with the quality of your manufacturing. Bought a Brand New Yaris Hybrid roughly a month ago and today it has refused to start altogether due to a faulty yellow key light. Eventually have to call the breakdown service AA only to find out that it needs a trip to the dealership. In the first set of checks, the dealership is unable to figure out any faults through their computer systems and the misery continues……………. Eventually have to leave the car at the dealership now and waiting to hear back from them.

    Is this what you call quality of manufacturing? Is this why I bought a brand new car?

    Absolutely unhappy customer who will never buy a Toyota again and will suggest others the same as well

    1. Then u should have bought a petrol not hybrid. Do ur research Nxt time . I’ve got a 66 plate Toyota yaris orange edition 1.33 vvti cvt. I’m happy with it no problems it’s bin 4 weeks . Wicked car love it very power petrol all the way.

  2. We’ve owned three Yaris’s over the years, from 2005 onwards. Super little cars. My son has just traded in his old Aygo for a used Orange Edition 1.33 petrol from 2016. Its a bit ‘orange’ for my taste, though the extra trimmings – especially the panoramic roof – are all nice additions to our more conventional 1.33 Icon of the same vintage. The car does what a Yaris should, nipping around town reliably and economically, while doing occasional longer trips in relative comfort.
    It’s harder to call Toyota ‘boring’ with this particular version, which certainly won’t get lost in the car park.

    1. Hi Tim,
      Thanks both for your comment and your loyalty over the years. We’re so glad to hear that your Yaris’ have served you well.
      It’s great to hear that your son is loving his Orange Edition – brilliant colour choice!
      We wish you many more happy miles and adventures.
      Thanks.
