Toyota Yaris

Model overview

The Toyota Yaris is a subcompact automobile marketed by Toyota as 1999, substituting the Starlet and Tercel.

Till 2019, Toyota used the Yaris nameplate on export variants of several Japanese-market models. Beginning in 2020, the Yaris nameplate began to be practiced in Japan, which followed the Vitz nameplate. The Yaris nameplate has been applied to other cars as well. As of 2020, the nameplate has also been applied for the subcompact crossover SUV offering named Yaris Cross.

In North America, the Yaris sedan marketed as 2015 and the Yaris hatchback marketed as 2019 are rebadged variants of the Mazda2 that are built by Mazda. The name "Yaris" is originated from "Charis", the singular form of Charites, the Greek muses of charm and beauty. First-generation models were sold within 1999 and 2005 under the "Yaris" and "Echo" titles depending on the market. Hatchback, sedan, and coupé body variants were available.

The Toyota Yaris sedan comes in three trim levels: L, LE, and XLE. All are powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (106 horsepower, 103 lb-ft of torque). A six-speed manual transmission is by default, and a six-speed automatic is optional (standard on the XLE).
