The style of the new Yaris, called Vitz in its home market, appears to be largely unchanged from the previous model, but now takes on the Aygo X motif across his face, despite the rear lights extend horizontally in comparison with the current model.

The video also confirms that the car will continue to be offered in both three and five-door formats; the previously revealed performance of the variant will be a three-door.

The text accompanying the video also confirms that the model will continue to offer a hybrid powertrain option; it is currently the only hybrid supermini on the market. It is claimed by Toyota to achieve 97.1 mpg – almost 20mpg on the Suzuki Swift hybrid also recently revealed in Japan. It is not confirmed yet if the Yaris will get a plug-in hybrid option like its Prius siblings, though.

A separate video confirms that the new car is 3945mm long, 1695mm 1500mm wide and high which is 20mm long and 10 mm lower than the current car – and has a wheelbase of 2510mm. The new Yaris is also said that despite 1010kg in petrol engine form and 1110kg in hybrid form, that is 30 kg and 40 kg lighter, respectively, than before.
