2. Toyota Yaris 2020: Radical style changes

As you can see, the new 2020 Yaris looks a bit like the Mazda 2. Despite that strange circumstance though, it looks really fetching.  It also looks quite similar to the new Toyota Corolla for sale which in of itself is a great looking car.

Upfront, the new Yaris sports a very curvy front fascia which is dominated by a huge blacked-out grille. Needless to say, the grille is definitely angrier looking that any of the ones on the older Yaris due to its frowning shape. Note also that the pillars are blacked out providing a two-tone paint scheme for the new hatch.

Overall, we’re quite certain that the 2020 Yaris will pump you up more than its predecessor ever did through its looks alone.
