2024 Toyota Yaris G Limited in Malaysia – performance and handling upgrades, 600 units; RM99,600 OTR

UMW Toyota Motor (UMWT) has announced today introduction of the Toyota Yaris G Limited for the Malaysian market, and this time around there is not only cosmetic revisions – there are upgrades applied to the B-segment hatchback’s chassis and powertrain as well.

Capped at a run of 600 units, the Yaris G Limited starts with the regular Yaris as its base, employing the familiar Dual VVT-i 2NR-FE 1.5 litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine. Changes to the engine include a cold air intake (CAI) to aid the intake of oxygen-rich air courtesy of a pod intake filter, in order to achieve better combustion efficiency.

The improved breathing is paired with a throttle controller that improves the vehicle’s pedal input to output ratio to achieve better engine response. This is also claimed to “improve horsepower and enhance acceleration”, though UMWT does not state any claimed engine output or performance gains with these changes.

As standard, the Yaris outputs 107 PS at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm at 4,200 rpm. Here, the Yaris G Limited continues to use the continuously variable transmission (CVT) with seven virtual ratios as before.

Chassis revisions featuring on the Yaris G Limited are comprised of new dampers which are stiffer in order to reduce body roll, improve grip and gain steering precision, in order for the driver to ‘switch lanes with confidence’, says UMWT. A chassis brace set is also included for increased body stiffness to improve stability, it adds.
