Toyota is hoping to steal the thunder away from Mazda in the hot hatch segment by revealing the 2015 Yaris less than a week after Mazda teased us with the 2015 Mazda2 (known as the Demio in other countries). Toyota will try to stay ahead of its competitor by making the 2015 Yaris available sooner.
Both hatchbacks have been restyled, taking cues from their larger siblings. The Mazda2 will easily be confused as a Mazda3, and may become known as the Baby 3 (You heard it here first). Although there is some Corolla in the Yaris, it still has its roots embedded in its silhouette.
