We are very excited to announce that the Eurofit group will be delivering the tire and wheel assemblies for the new Toyota Yaris Cross SUV.
The Yaris Cross made its world debut last April and hit the markets in Japan on 31st August. As an authentic SUV that combines Toyota’s small car expertise and rich SUV heritage, the Yaris Cross features nimble driving, advanced security and safety technology. It also comes with the superior fuel economy of the Yaris series.
It is the second model to be based on Toyota’s GA-B platform, delivering a distinctive design and dynamic performance. The Yaris Cross will also feature the carmaker’s smallest version of Toyota’s New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform following on the footsteps of the Yaris and Corolla to the RAV4. It will be the second model in Europe featuring it.
European market introduction is expected in 2021. The Yaris Cross will be built at Toyota’s French production facility in Valenciennes. The volumes are not small: around 150,000 cars per year, according to Toyota. Such volumes would give the carmaker a considerable market share in the European compact SUV market.
