The next-gen Toyota Yaris hatchback has leaked ahead of its world debut at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show scheduled to open its doors later this month. The all-new Yaris was seen without wearing any camouflage at the Toyota Technical Center Shimoyama.
If you recall, Toyota unveiled a new modular platform dubbed the GA-B a month ago that it said will underpin all future subcompact models. With that, the new Yaris will be the first car to utilize this platform. According to Toyota the new TNGA-B platform is lower and wider than the current, allowing the new Yaris to have a lower center of gravity and offer better driving dynamics as well. Although specifications are not available at the moment, but the new Yaris is expected to be longer and wider and will stand shorter than the current generation model.
The all new 4th generation Yaris will get a radical redesign, looking completely different than the current model. It adopts a broader stance like most other recent Toyota models. There is a redesigned prominent gaping grille up front, sportier front bumper with more pronounced outer ends, sleeker headlamps and flared-up wheel arches giving the new Yaris hatchback a much more aggressive look. The rear has an interesting set of tail lights, somewhat reminiscent to that of the funky C-HR crossover.
According to information, the new Yaris will get a hybrid version combining 1.5 liter 1NZ-FXE coupled with an electric motor, as well as 1.2 liter 8NR-FTS turbocharged petrol engine. Furthermore there will be a performance oriented GR Sport version on offer as well.
