The company has been producing the 1.4-liter Toyota 1ND-TV or 1.4 D4D diesel engine since 2002 and installs it on the most popular models for the European market, such as Yaris, iQ and Corolla. This motor was seriously updated in 2008, so some distinguish its two generations.
This compact diesel debuted in March 2002 on the European version of the Yaris. The design was quite typical for a whole series of similar units of the Japanese concern: here there is an aluminum cylinder block with cast-iron liners and an open cooling jacket, a timing chain drive, an aluminum 8-valve SOHC block head without hydraulic compensators. Direct fuel injection is carried out by the Bosch Common Rail system with a CP3S3 injection pump. For supercharging in the basic versions of the engine, CT2 or CT9 turbines of our own production are responsible, and more powerful ones are equipped with variable geometry turbines Garret GT1444V or GT1241.
The motor was repeatedly modernized and the most serious update took place in 2008: the oil pump was moved from the timing cover to the engine crankcase and equipped with its own drive, modern piezo injectors appeared instead of the old electromagnetic ones and a particulate filter.
The engine was installed on:
- Toyota Auris 1 (E150) in 2006 – 2012; Auris 2 (E180) in 2012 – 2018;
- Toyota Corolla 9 (E120) in 2004 – 2007; Corolla 10 (E150) in 2006 – 2013; Corolla E170 in 2013 – 2019;
- Toyota Etios 1 (AK10) in 2010 – 2019;
- Toyota iQ AJ10 in 2008 – 2015;
- Toyota Probox 1 (XP50) in 2002 – 2018;
- Toyota Urban Cruiser 1 (XP110) in 2008 – 2014;
- Toyota Verso-S XP120 in 2010 – 2017;
- Toyota Yaris XP10 in 2002 – 2005; Yaris Verso 1 (XP20) in 2002 – 2005; Yaris 2 (XP90) in 2005 – 2011; Yaris 3 (XP130) in 2011 – 2019;
- Mini Hatch R50 in 2004 – 2006.

Disadvantages of the 1ND-TV engine
- Diesels of the first years of production suffered from a violation of the tightness of the junction of the head and block. A large-scale recall campaign was carried out and many of these motors were changed under warranty.
- The most common problem with engines in this series is oil consumption and usually it is not the wear of the oil scraper rings or caps that is to blame, but the failure of the turbine.
- Another weak point of this motor is the crankcase ventilation system, which quickly clogs, then the oil begins to fly into the intake and climb out of the seals.
- Glow plugs have a limited lifespan and will need to be replaced sooner or later. However, only an experienced specialist can unscrew them in this unit without breaking them off.
- Except for capricious piezo injectors, the fuel equipment here is quite reliable. More often than not, only the pressure regulator valve in the fuel rail fails.
- Rarer, but still regularly encountered problems of this unit include: high-pressure fuel pump leaks, as well as constantly pouring nozzles due to a malfunction of the control unit.
