While the Yanks currently have the Mazda 2 based Toyota Yaris, we here in the Philippines, of course, have the one more or less shares the same platform as the Toyota Vios known as the XP150. The current generation model, however, has aged quite a bit.
Recently, however, Toyota has just revealed the all-new, fourth-generation Yaris. How new is it? Well, it now rides on the TNGA-B platform and it the first Toyota vehicle to ever do so. And yes, it’s no longer related to the current model Vios.
The two-tone scheme especially looks great in red
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 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.
