There should not be many changes and surprises in 2018 Toyota Yaris; according to the news from Toyota, we had by now. The popular small car is slightly redesigned, and those changes are only in term of design and equipment in the cabin. Toyota simply has to change something, after the long period of using almost the same details for those small cars, so we can say that they have learned the lesson. New Yaris has recognizable and traditional details, well-known engine performances, but there are still some novelties which prove that Toyota knows how to keep buyers attention whole time.
If we must describe the thing which will be visible first, that would be large mesh air grille, which literally covers the front bumper in a trapezoidal shape. Above it is rounded hood, with incorporated large front lights. On the side of the front bumper is curved metallic part covering air vents and fog lights. The nose of the front end is slightly extended and thinned, so the recognizable manufacture’s logo is almost protruded forward. The rear end has no many surprises, so we will see curved lines which support the rounded shape of the rear end and large rear lights.
There are no many surprises in the cabin design and size, either. According to the photos, 2018 Toyota Yaris will still have quality fabric on the seats, simple but useful dashboard and classic steering wheel. In term of the equipment, we can mention Siri Eyes Free, Entune Toyota system, voice recognition, Bluetooth, USB port, an auxiliary audio jack and MP3 six speakers. All devices are collected in 6.1-inch touchscreen, which will grow up in higher trims to the 7.0-inch touchscreen in the middle of the cabin. Speaking about the higher trims, we should mention HD radio, a navigation system, hands-free phone capability and weather and traffic info.
There are some differences between the 2018 Toyota Yaris version for the US and European market. While the European buyers will get a stronger engine with 207 horsepower, the US buyers will have to be satisfied with smaller 1.5-liter with 106 horsepower and 105 pound-feet of torque. Maybe the most interesting thing about the transmission is that smaller engine gets five-speed automatic transmission, while stronger ones will get four-speed automatic transmission instead.

As we expect, the 2018 Toyota Yaris should be on the market at the end of 2017, but it is still not for sure will there be differences in US and European markets, or who will get their car first.
