We were really excited by rumors that Toyota could bring the performance version of the Yaris to its American showrooms. Unfortunately, the automaker has refuted speculation that the Yaris GR would not come to the United States. In fact, even the standard Yaris could disappear after the 2020 model year.
The information is not official at the moment but CarBuzz reports that the Yaris hatchback and sedan will be discontinued after the 2020-2020. A disclosed Toyota memo to “All Southeast Toyota dealers and general managers” appears to confirm the disappearance of the underside -compact based on Mazda2.
“The Yaris sedan and the Yaris sedan will not be available for the 2021 model year,” wrote Christine Henley, Toyota Western Communications Manager for North America. The 2020 model year will be the last year for Yaris. June 2020 will be the last month of production for the Yaris sedan and the Yaris sedan for the United States. “
If the report turns out to be true, it will mean that two of the most affordable new cars on the American market will disappear very soon. Prices start at $ 15,650 and $ 17,750 for the Yaris hatchback and sedan, respectively, and even our April tester was still below the $ 20,000 mark despite all the additional equipment.
It is not yet known whether the cancellation of the current Yaris means that Toyota would bring the European version of the model to the United States. As a reminder, the two cars have nothing in common because the Euro-spec Yaris is based on a different platform and even has a powerful GR version with a 1.6-liter turbo. The American model, on the other hand, is based on the Mazda2 and made its debut as a Scion iA in 2015 before being integrated into the Toyota range.
