The 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan takes pint-size four-doors in a new instructions. A nip and tuck for the 2019 model year gives the subcompact sedan revised exterior styling, while the lineup now includes 3 trim levels topped by a range-topping XLE with leatherette upholstery and a few fancy features not typically seen in small cars.
The 2019 Yaris sedan– which was called the Yaris iA last year and the Scion iA two years ago– is the four-door counterpart to the Yaris hatchback. Yet all is not as it appears in the beginning look because the sedan was developed and is constructed under agreement by Mazda. That means it shares little with the Yaris hatchback– a benefit to lovers thanks to Mazda’s sporty car know-how.
2019 Toyota Yaris Exterior
So far, Toyota has actually only detailed the 2019 Yaris sedan; we don’t know if any changes are in store for the hatchback, but we’ll update this space once we learn. Outside, the Yaris sedan has actually a modified front fascia with a new honeycomb-style grille insert. The narrow four-door has some design cues shown the Mazda 3, which isn’t much of a surprise considering that this Toyota-badged little car is sold as the Mazda 2 in some worldwide markets.
2019 Toyota Yaris Interior
Inside, the Yaris sedan is once again a dead-ringer for a Mazda. Every switch, knob, and lever is provided by Mazda and differs from that seen on other Toyotas. That’s no bad thing, because the Yaris sedans we’ve driven have felt well-built and feature interior products a step above what’s normal for subcompact cars. The Yaris sedan is tight inside, with minimal rear-seat room, but that’s not unanticipated provided its trim exterior dimensions. The only caveat? The Yaris hatchback offers much better utility than the sedan.
2019 Toyota Yaris Engine
All Yaris sedans have a 1.5-liter inline-4 engine underhood rated at 106 horse power and 103 pound-feet of torque paired to either a 6-speed handbook or a 6-speed automatic.
2019 Toyota Yaris Changes
We haven’t driven the 2019 Yaris sedan, but the styling and lineup changes for 2019 are not likely to change our viewpoint: it’s a hoot to execute its rates. Its tight suspension is a huge step above common subcompact sedans and its direct, linear steering is as communicative as some cars costing 5 times as much.
Both transmissions have actually earned our favor in the past, especially the slick-shifting 6-speed handbook. For 2019, the Yaris sedan’s fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 30 mpg city, 39 highway, 34 integrated with the manual and 32/40/35 with the optional automatic. The most significant changes for 2019 begun the buying sheet, given that the Yaris sedan is now used in 3 trim levels: L, LE, and XLE.
The Yaris L acts as the gateway to the lineup with its 7.0-inch infotainment screen, power windows and locks, and Bluetooth. The LE trim includes heated exterior mirrors with LED turn signals, alloy wheels, and fog lights. Topping the line, the XLE adds leatherette seating surfaces, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automated climate control, LED headlights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
2019 Toyota Yaris Price
Toyota hasn’t revealed rates for the upgraded Yaris sedan, so we’re uncertain how the value story will work out for the new lineup.
