As excited as we were about the new 2019 Toyota Yaris Sedan, we spent the year wondering if and when it would be joined by a new Yaris Hatchback. Well, we had to wait a little longer than we hoped, but now the 2020 Toyota Yaris Hatchback in Moline IL is here! All-new for the 2020 model year, the subcompact hatchback sedan makes an excellent option for anyone looking into the smallest vehicles available but who still needs plenty of space for cargo.
The Toyota Yaris has been around since 1999, undergoing plenty of changes since then. None of those changes were quite as big as the one in 2015, when Toyota North America decided to stop producing the Yaris and instead let Mazda build it. In other words, the Toyota Yaris Hatchback is a slightly altered version of the Mazda2!
Let’s focus on what’s new for the 2020 model year, the most obvious of which is the sporty and bold new exterior look. The Yaris has always been defined by its fun personality, and that’s one thing that certainly returns in the new model. Technologies such as the Low-Speed Pre-Collision Safety System, the Active Safety System, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 7” display audio screen, Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition, six audio speakers and two USB ports have all been added and standardized, only increasing the value that the entry-level sedan has to offer.
As for performance, it has been enhanced by a 6-speed automatic transmission with Sport Mode being made standard on the vehicle, while the sedan now has an estimated fuel economy of 40 miles per gallon, making it an incredibly efficient option in the entry level classes as well. We’ve only begun to scratch the surface of everything that this redesigned vehicle has to offer, so if you’d like to learn more don’t hesitate to reach out to us. You can schedule a test drive right here on the website or by calling the sales desk, if you’re already ready to take one for a spin!
