Default 2020/21 Toyota Yaris

A proper new Yaris on the way, even if its seems so far mostly for Europe;
Already testing in GR Sport and Hybrid versions;

https://www.carscoops.com/2019/07/eu...ybrid-flavors/

The GR Sport:




The regular/Hybrid one



Well, this is certainly on some way TNGA based, although it does look rather tiny (especially that rear door gives very little hope that this will be a spacious super mini in the way the first two generations were), and despite being (likely) unrelated to the Mazda 2 (which is teh US Yaris), the tiny rear end does somehow still give Mazda vibes;

The front end somehow carries on the theme of teh current model (and the Aygo), but as a result seems unrelated to the new Corolla visually;The side view and the interior however are very clearly a recent Toyota, that infotainment seems identical to most new TNGA cars.It also appears to get a proper HUD, from that interior shot

The article expects a debut i 2020, though given how finished these look (and Toyota usually doesn't seem to have finished prototypes around for too long), I wouldn't be surprised if it debuts later this year....

That is unspeakably ugly looking. The Yaris has never been attractive, but this look like they are trying to make it terrible looking.

Showing the new TNGA-B platform ahead of the Yaris' launch; Interestingly, even the Yaris (likely the Hybrid) will come with Multilink rear axle in some versions; Also, they claim handling is the main asset of the GA-B platform (we wills see, I also hope that practicality, a trait many small car customers value in real life at least as high as handling, will not come too short)

All platforms are essentially variable wheelbase.

My understanding standing is to have some version of the platform (not the Yaris) will have multilink rear suspension. Clearly in the illustration that's a torsion beam

I just hope it's not compromised inside like the current trend of new cars.


The old NBC based cars were known for having excellent packaging considering their small physical size. The Yaris has always had a workably large interior for being a short car. This cab-rearward trend seems like it's going to destroy that.


At least the Fit/Jazz is still roomy.

I think they mean variable wheelbase on demand like variable valve timing

The current Corolla hatchback compared to its two predecessors doesn't really ease any concerns around that, considering how the current hatchback has worse interior space than the Auris/iM, which had worse interior space than the Matrix did.

The Yaris is a car for people who have no joy in life. I'd rather have a base Corolla if I were nickel-and-diming a car purchase at Toyota.
