After having launched the new Yaris Ativ sedan last month, Toyota continues to bring in Thailand a facelifted Toyota Yaris 2018 hatchback. Overall, this eco hatchback is better-looking, more functional and also, much safer.
Up front, the new Toyota Yaris is now adorned by a large lower front grille which is exclusively flanked by LED daytime running lights on the top-spec G model. The grille is also coupled with grille combo and iconic Toyota V headlights (halogen headlights with LED light guides for the G).

On the side, the Yaris remains the floating roof thanks to blacked out C pillars but at the rear, the screen is flat-bottomed. This time, the hatchback receives an all-new look with a pair of LED tail lights linked together by a new black bar attached Toyota emblem in the middle.

Furthermore, the cabin is also loaded with a digital AC panel, keyless entry with push start, Optitron meter panel and steering audio/calls buttons.
