Toyota presented the brand new Toyota Yaris Hatchback back in April. To say that it’s an improvement over its dated predecessor is an understatement. Based on the Mazda2, the new 2020 Yaris stands out from the subcompact crowd with its bold styling, sporty handling, and a revamped interior.
2020 Toyota Yaris has been offered as a sedan or hatchback usually have different prices, Toyota is taking an entirely different approach because the 2020 Yaris hatchback won’t cost you any more than the sedan.
All Yaris hatchback models come standard with 16-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps, keyless entry with push-button start, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and automated emergency braking. The XLE trim adds faux-leather upholstery, automatic LED headlamps, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, automatic climate control, and rain-sensing wipers.
The hatchback is powered by the same 106-hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine as the sedan and should deliver similar fuel economy; the 2019 sedan with the automatic transmission is rated for 32 mpg city, 40 mpg highway, and 35 mpg combined.
2020 LE Hatchback will start at $18,705 and $19,705 if you upgrade to the XLE trim. Both prices include the destination charge and match the prices of the LE and XLE versions of the sedan. For reference, this also makes the 2020 Yaris cheaper than the outgoing model, which started at $17,285 for the equivalent LE model.
