2020 Toyota Yaris Hybrid
According to the latest reports, the next generation of Toyota’s subcompact car is about to come in the next year, as 2020 Toyota Yaris Hybrid. Same reports also suggest that we are about to see two versions of it, once again. While most of the world will benefit from Toyota’s original design, the North American version will once again come based on Mazda 2.
Therefore, count on a familiar approach, which includes the same mechanics and interior design, but distinctive exterior designs. Finally, the most important novelty will be a new hybrid powertrain.
- Spectacular fuel economy
- Stylish interior
- Good driving dynamics
- Lots of standard equipment
- Quite expensive for the segment
The new 2020 Toyota Yaris Hybrid will be once again heavily based on the Mazda 2 model. The Mazda’s model is about to receive a complete overhaul in the next year and this model will go in the same way. Once again, we will see the same mechanics.
The new Yaris will feature the newest version of the familiar SkyActive platform. On the other side, it will come with its own styling. It will be based on the brand’s newest design language, with a lot of inspiration taken from the new Corolla, which came recently. In terms of size, the new model won’t be much different compared to the current model.
The current model features a cabin design that is almost identical to the Mazda 2 model. The 2020 Toyota Yaris Hybrid will probably come in the same manner, which definitely isn’t a bad thing.
Mazda is well-known for its stylish approach when it comes to the interior design, while the overall quality is on a high level as well. In addition, Toyota will probably add its famous Safety Sense suite of safety features, as well as a few more tech goodies.
