2020 Toyota Yaris Redesign, Hatchback, Specs, and Changes. With less than 2,000 sold units, the market performance of the Toyota Yaris hatchback could be called very poor. Because of that, the new 2020 Toyota Yaris will get the brand-new look, based on the different platform.
This is not the first time Toyota and Mazda are making each other better. Or it is better to say that Mazda helps Toyota? Back in the time when Toyota produced Scion vehicles, Mazda jumped in with the platform of its Mazda2 for iA sedan.

2020 Toyota Yaris/ Mazda2 Specs
A 1.5-liter displacement remains under the hood of the 2020 Toyota Yaris. Well, Mazda is also using this engine for its Mazda2 hatch. Let’s compare outputs of these two units.
For the current Yaris, a 1.5-liter engine is paired with a six-speed manual transmission. With the automatic gearbox, you will get a better gas mileage (32/40 mpg). If you are a fan of a manual transmission, the rate drops to 30/39 mpg for city/highway drive.
On the other hand, a 1.5-liter petrol drivetrain for the Mazda2 can produce 75, 90, or 115 hp. With the base configuration, Mazda2 returns 42 mpg combined. The setup with 90 hp offers 38, and 115 hp comes with 41 mpg combined.
