Since 2013, a unique version of the Yaris based on the Toyota Vios (XP150) launched in Asian markets, including China, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan and Vietnam.
The Chinese market also released the regular Vitz-based Yaris produced locally by the GAC Toyota joint venture. China also sells the Vios-based model as the Yaris L, available in 1.3- 6NR-FE and 1.5-liter 7NR-FE versions.
In Thailand, this Yaris was released in October 2013, using the 1.2-liter 3NR-FE engine, granting the Yaris as part of the "eco-car" program in Thailand. Models offered are as follows: J ECO, J, E, and G.
For the Indonesian market, the XP150 model was revealed in December 2013, and launched on 17 March 2014, with assembly at Karawang, Indonesia. This Indonesian Yaris is similar to the Thai version, thus bigger than the Yarises for other markets, and uses the 1.5-liter 1NZ-FE engine. Trim levels offered are: E, G, and TRD Sportivo with manual or automatic transmission.
As announced at the 2015 New York Auto Show, the sedan version of the Toyota Yaris sedan sold in Canada from mid-2015 will be a rebadged version of the Mazda2 (DJ). The same vehicle will be sold in the United States as the Scion iA.
