A subcompact car produced by Toyota since 1999. It replaced the Starlet, and was originally called the Toyota Echo in the United States market. The Yaris R sedan (a rebadged Mazda2) was sold as the Scion iA for a short time before the Scion brand folded.

History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Toyota Yaris page on 23 November 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Toyota Yaris (Japanese: トヨタ ・ヤリス) is a subcompact car produced by Toyota since 1999, replacing the Starlet. Between 1999 and 2005, some markets received the same vehicles under the Toyota Echo name. Toyota has used the "Yaris" and "Echo" names on the export version of several different Japanese-market models.

The name "Yaris" is derived from "Charis", the singular form of Charites, the Greek goddesses of charm and beauty.

International: First generation (XP10; 1999–2005)

First generation models were marketed between 1999 and 2005 under the "Yaris" and "Echo" names depending on the market. Hatchback, coupe, and sedan body variants were offered.

International: Second generation (XP90; 2005–2013)

Second generation models have been marketed since 2005 under the "Yaris" name worldwide. Hatchback and sedan body styles were offered. The hatchback version was discontinued in early 2014 for Asian markets.

International: Third generation (XP130, XP150; 2011–present)

Third generation models have been marketed since 2011 under the "Yaris" name worldwide. Originally available only as a hatchback, a sedan body style arrived in 2013.

Asia: Third generation (XP150; 2013–present)

Since 2013, a different version of the Yaris based on the Toyota Vios (XP150) was launched for the Asian market, including China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines.

The Chinese market also released the regular Vitz-based Yaris produced locally by the GAC Toyota joint venture. China also sells the Vios-based model as the Yaris L, available in 1.3- 6NR-FE and 1.5-liter 7NR-FE versions. The facelift Yaris L was unveiled at the April 2016 Auto China. In 2016, a facelift was conducted by the GAC Toyota joint venture, and a sedan version was added based on the Toyota Vios sedan.

In Thailand, this Yaris was released in October 2013, using the 1.2-liter 3NR-FE engine, granting the Yaris as part of the "eco-car" program in Thailand. Models offered are as follows: J ECO, J, E, G and TRD Sportivo.

For the Indonesian market, the XP150 model was revealed in December 2013, and launched on 17 March 2014, with assembly at Karawang, Indonesia. This Indonesian Yaris is similar to the Thai version, thus bigger than the Yaris in other markets, and uses the 1.5-liter 1NZ-FE engine. Trim levels offered are: E, G, and TRD Sportivo with manual or automatic transmission. The XP150 model received an update on 3 November 2016, along with the new crossover SUV-like variant, the Yaris Heykers. The updated XP150 model uses the newer 1.5-liter 2NR-FE engine from the facelifted second generation Avanza and the Indonesian-spec second generation Sienta.

For the Philippines market, the XP150 Yaris was launched in late 2013 sold in two trim levels: the 1.3 E and the 1.5 G.

The same model is marketed as the Yaris Sport in Chile since 2014 and Argentina from 2016, where it comes imported from Thailand.
