Patent images of the Toyota Yaris facelift have surfaced online.
The car seen in these patent images is the hatchback version of the Yaris. It features a trapezoidal grille, large sweptback headlamps and redesigned fog lamp pods. At the rear, the car gets wraparound tail lamps and a dual-tone bumper. The B and C-pillars are painted black to give a floating roof effect.
In India, Toyota offers the Yaris sedan. It is powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 106 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque @ 4,200 rpm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 7-speed CVT with paddle shifters.
While the Yaris hatchback is unlikely to come to India, similar updates could be seen on the sedan in the future.
