All new 2020 Toyota Yaris








The Toyota Yaris will be an all new car for 2020. In Europe.
As we mentioned before, the 2020 model for the US market is just a good old Mazda 2.

This new generation is based on Toyota's all new GA-B platform.
It will be offered with the choice of a new 1.5 Liter or  1.0 3 cylinder engines.

But the main attraction here is the 4th generation Hybrid power plant using the 1.5 Liter.
Toyota claims it was able to drive as an EV mode 80% of the time while testing in urban areas.
Which is be pretty amazing...

The design is kind of cute. the car looks like a little bulldog. But it is also quite busy.
I am not a big fan of huge grilles on tiny cars. Or fake plastic vents on bumpers either.
But the interior seems to be much nicer. 
Competition will be tough in Europe. With a new Renault Clio, with its amazing interior.
And with the all new Peugeot 208. Which is already offered was an EV. And its cousin the Opel Corsa.

Obviously, this is not coming to the US market. At least for now.

I like it. It has charisma, something the current model lacks. The europeans are very spoiled with the small cars they have over there. BTW, you made the choice to show the car with the small wheels while most of the official photos show the car with the very attractive 17 inch wheels. Just something i've noticed...

God, that is hideous. I thought the C-HR was the pinnacle of awkward, overwrought design cues, but clearly Toyota is trying to top themselves. Glad that the US gets to keep the Mazda-built substitute.
