But it's YARIS ZEN IN ACTION IN still a respectably solid set of GRAHAMSTOWN. wheels that won't give you too many hassles... or thrills. The range has been chopped from 14 to 10 mod- els (six hatchbacks and four sedans), starting with the 1.0-litre Zen1 hatch for R126 300 and topping out with the 1.3-litre Zen3 Plus AT sedan for R172 700. The new Zens arrived at Settler City Toyota in Beau- fort Street last week, so we went around and took one for a spin (the Zen3 AC). Person- ally, whenever I need a rental car I like to opt for a Yaris as they seem to be more ‘to- gether’ compared to similar offerings. So stepping into the Yaris Zen I had a good idea of what to expect, espe- cially as there's so little that's changed. Performance from this 1.3-litre puppy induces yawns rather than grins, and to get anywhere in a hurry you re- ally have to work the gears. I shudder to think what kind of a slouch the 1.0-litre must be. That said, once you’ve got it up to 120km/h, it sits very SAME OLD, SAME OLD... Nothing much has changed in the comfortably and confidently new Yaris Zen. Photo: Stephen Penney on the open road with the revs at a not-too-bad 3 500 SETTLER CITY rpm.
