Added equipment includes 15-inch alloy wheels and foglamps as standard from the more expensive YRX model, along with a six-stack CD player with audio streaming capabilities and USB connection.
The unique Edge treatment adds branded floor mats with brushed aluminium badging and a special-edition "Edge" soft-metal badge on the tailgate.
The Yaris Edge is powered by a VVT-i equipped 1.3-litre, four-cylinder engine that is capable of returning 700km on regular unleaded from its 42-litre tank, based on the official combined fuel economy of 6.0L/100km for the manual.
Standard safety features include twin front airbags, anti-skid brakes with brake assist and electronic brake distribution and seatbelt pre-tensioners and force limiters for the front seats.
Customers can also opt for the enhanced safety pack at $750 that incorporates side and curtain airbags.
