Performance Upgrade

The Dub edition vehicle did receive aggressive exterior and interior upgrades, but the customized hatchback didn’t get any engine upgrades. It is still powered by a four-cylinder 1.5-liter inline engine that produces 106 horsepower and 103 lbs. / Feet of torque. It is also still fitted with the same 5-speed manual transmission. Though no engine add-ons were made, it does come fitted with a modified drop suspension system and 20-inch gloss-black Dropstars DS643, concave wheels that are wrapped in Invo Nitto tires. Its braking system is also upgraded to StopTech rotors that is paired with a big TRD brake kit.

Major Overall Upgrade

The 2015 Dub Edition Toyota Yaris features a very exciting and attractive appearance. It has changed so much compared to the previous version. It is meaner and can keep up with present-day design trends. Similar to past SEMA entries, DUB Magazine immediately jumped at giving the Toyota Yaris a major and dramatic makeover. It is highlighted with a very aggressive profile, a racing feel interior, and of course, a monstrous audio system.

Aggressive Exterior Looks

Looking at the Toyota Yaris 2015 Dub Edition, and comparing it with past versions, it is bursting with high confidence unlike the subtle and a bit boring previous look. It features a two-tone paint scheme that goes well with SEMA vehicle entries this year. It is painted with a combination of gloss-black at the back and matte-pearl white paint. The aggressive look is completed by fitting a new Custom TS Designs wide-body kit, tinted windows, and also stealthy smoked rear tail lights.

Racing Interior Look

Majority of the Dub Edition Toyota Yaris’ upgrades is massively focused on its interior and putting a lot of focus on its hidden racing pedigree. Added to the vehicle’s potential in becoming a rolling boom box. The interior racing element is obvious with Sparco racing seats paired with a roll bar that is custom painted in pearl-white. To add more aggressiveness in styling, the headliner is ultra-suede and black, plus a number of red accents that led to the Yaris’ incredible overall transformation. From a tiny and cute city car, to a madhouse monster on wheels.

Boombastic Audio

Upon opening the DUB Edition’s trunk, the real magic and monstrous is revealed. A DUB Edition complete audio system is installed. A total of three amplifiers, two massive speakers, two subwoofers, that is enclosed in fiberglass with painted and leather accents. As a control center, an iPad placed in between the speakers and serves as the audio system’s control center where heart throbbing audio madness is unleashed.

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.

At Autowise, we envision ourselves as not just a automobile blog or an automobile news website, instead we see our website as a platform to connect all automobile enthusiast and provide them with all the information they need.
