    Upon introducing the new Toyota Yaris, President of UMW Toyota Motor Datuk Ravindran K. said, "There is a growing population of youth who are the trend-setters of the future - the Tik-Tok Generation who prioritises style and social standing, and are ambitious and self-expressive. The new Toyota Yaris is the vehicle that delivers on their expectations for their main ride.”

    "We feel this new edition will appeal to the Gen-Zs in every aspect. From its stylish exterior appearance that will appease their social status, while the advanced technology such as the larger audio entertainment unit, coupled with the Toyota Safety Sense features will enhance the driving comfort and gives them a peace of mind each time they get behind the wheel. We are sure the "Dare To Live: Amp Up Your Vibe" tagline will jive perfectly with this generation's personalities," he added.
