Well this is interesting. Spyshots depicting what appears to be a Toyota Yaris were snapped in Thailand. The Toyota Yaris is the hatchback version of the Toyota Vios. These photos were uploaded on the headlightmag forum.
From what we can observe, the heavy camouflage conceals most of the car's details, but we can see that this test mule has front bumper-mounted LED daytime running lights, akin to the current Toyota Vios. The shape of the front headlight is also rather large, not like the facelifted Vios' headlights.
Side profile is similar to the outgoing Yaris, suggesting that this isn't an all-new model, rather an updated one. As for the rear end, the heavy masking around the tail lights appear to indicate that Toyota has altered the tail lights, which now seems to blend into the tailgate.
The current generation Toyota Yaris was launched in Thailand back in 2013, making it an appropriate candidate for a facelift. The Toyota Vios also made a debut in 2013, received a major facelift earlier in January.
The Yaris nameplate has never quite taken off in Malaysia, so the likelihood of this model even making it to our shores is remote in the extreme.
