According to Toyota they sold about 10 000 units of the hatchback version since its introduction in November.

The Yaris sedan had its world launch at the Detroit Motor Show in January and features the same DNA as its hatchback sibling.

Toyota says whereas the Yaris hatchback is aimed at trend setting, young and outgoing singles, the Yaris Sedan will find favour with price conscious young family buyer

The Toyota "Easy Flat" system is adopted for this sedan model as in the Hatch for added versatility.

Maximum power is 63 kW with 121 Nm of torque. This will be matched to a 5-speed manual transmission with the option of a 4-speed automatic for the top of the range Spirit model.
