Leaked photos of the next-generation Toyota Yaris completely undisguised were published online overnight.

Like earlier spy photos, this car features flared wheel arches and a curvaceous body. From these images posted by Newsauto we can the new Yaris has LED headlights, a large, gaping grille, and an aggressively-cut front bumper.

At the back a full-width black panel incorporating the tail-lights dominates the hatch. As is currently the trend, the new Yaris will be available with a contrasting black roof.

The new Yaris is the latest model to use a version of the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA), specifically the recently unveiled GA-B platform.

Like other TNGA-based cars, the new Yaris should have a lower centre of gravity, reduced weight, and a much more engaging driving experience.

The fourth-generation Yaris is expected to make its in-the-flesh debut at the 2019 Tokyo motor show, which kicks off later this month.


Earlier this year dealer sources told CarAdvice the new Yaris will go on sale in Australia during the first half of 2020. For the first time, the Australia-bound Yaris will be available with a hybrid drivetrain option.

This Yaris will be sold in Europe and Japan, but North America will continue with its Yaris model, which is essentially a Mazda 2 with a new front end.

It's not known if Toyota will continue with a separate Yaris model for developing markets, such as Asia, China and Latin America.
