The 2020 Toyota Yaris is available in five variants with pricing ranging from $15,290 for the Ascent manual to $22,470 before on-roads for the Yaris ZR.
The current Yaris is the third generation of the nameplate – the first-generation car was sold in Australia as the Echo. It represents almost 28 percent of sales in its segment, and leads the light car market.
The fourth-generation Yaris will arrive in Australia in May 2020, riding on the Toyota GA-B platform. Expect to see a hybrid drivetrain for the first time in Australia, allowing the Yaris to effectively replace the Prius C.
