US to get new Yaris sedan first

The Yaris sedan will first go on sale in the US and a European derivative will be launched later this year, which will go on sale in South Africa too.

It shares its engineering and most of its styling cues with that of its hatchback sibling.

Of course the sedan also comes with a comprehensive safety package and airbags, ABS, EBD, Emergency Brake Assist are standard.

When it goes on sale in South Africa the Yaris sedan will probably feature the same 63 kW 1.3-litre engine as the hatchback.

There is no official indication when the Yaris sedan will arrive in SA but it will probably only be in the third or fourth quarter.
