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.

2020 Toyota Yaris

I have mentioned the 2020 Toyota Yaris before, but this seems to be a better look at the all new small hatchback from Toyota.

Strangely enough, what is now sold as the 2020 Yaris hatchback in the US is just a rebadged Mazda 2.
So it looks like the "real new Yaris" from Toyota might not be coming over here.

The new Yaris is supposed to be using an all new platform. And will probably be offered as a hybrid as well. Since it has been the case in Europe for years.
And I am sure an EV or at least plug-in version is coming soon as well...

I still wonder if this will end up replacing the Mazda 2 as well.

All new Toyota Yaris sedan



No, this isn't the Scion iA.
And it isn't the Mazda2 sedan either...

It is Toyota's new idea of selling the iA in Canada. So they just renamed it "Yaris Sedan".
Since it is still a Mazda2 with an ugly front end, it actually has nothing to do with the regular Yaris hatchback. Nothing, except the name.

Why not, I guess...
