The Toyota Yaris (XP150) is the third generation of the Yaris which is based on the XP150 Vios, a subcompact car produced and sold by Toyota in parts of Asia and South America since 2013. It made its public debut at the Auto Shanghai in April 2013. It was first launched for the Asian market – including China, Taiwan, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Brunei, the Philippines, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. The XP150 Yaris hatchback is larger and longer than the unrelated XP130 Vitz or Yaris hatchback, which is sold in Japan, North America, Europe and Australasia. The XP150 Yaris hatchback is also marketed as the Yaris Sport in Chile since 2014, and in Mexico and Argentina from 2016, where it is imported from Thailand. In Chile and Mexico, it replaced the XP130 Vitz-based Yaris hatchback.
The Chinese market also released the regular XP90 Vitz-based Yaris produced locally by the GAC Toyota joint venture. China also sells the XP150 model as the Yaris L, available in 1.3- 6NR-FE and 1.5-liter 7NR-FE versions. The facelift Yaris L was unveiled at the April 2016 Auto China. In 2016, a facelift was conducted by the GAC Toyota joint venture, and a sedan version was added based on the Toyota Vios sedan.
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, G and TRD Sportivo.
The third generation Yaris was launched in the Philippines in 2014 with the same engine as the Vios with the 1NZ-FE which is the 1.5 liter engine and the 2NZ-FE which is the 1.3 liter engine, available in 2 engine grades but the transmission differs, in the 1.3 line-up it can be paired with a 5 speed manual or a 4 speed automatic for the 1.5 liter variant 4 speed automatic is the only option of transmission. In late 2016 both the Yaris and the Vios were upgraded with new engines and transmissions standard on all variants are the new dual VVT-I engines which are the 2NR-FE for the 1.3 engine and the 1NR-FE for the 1.5 engine replacing the 4 speed automatic with the new 7 speed CVT along with a new mirror link head unit.
The XP150 Yaris was unveiled for the Indonesian market in December 2013, and launched on 17 March 2014, which is assembled in Karawang, Indonesia. It uses the 1.5-liter 1NZ-FE engine. Trim levels offered are: E, G and TRD Sportivo with manual or automatic transmission.
The XP150 model received an update on 3 November 2016 with the new 1.5-liter 2NR-FE engine from the Indonesian-spec second generation Sienta. The base model E and mid-level G got only restyled alloy wheels, but the TRD Sportivo gained slightly different fog light housings on the front bumper, and black roof spoiler with red inner side.
Together with the updated standard Yaris, Toyota Indonesia introduced the crossover-like variant, Yaris Heykers in late 2016. It came with different front and rear bumper designs, the addition of black overfenders, roof side ornaments, and higher but stiffer TRD springs. The Heykers variant was discontinued in January 2018.
After the production of Yaris Heykers in Indonesia discontinued, Toyota South Africa offers the similar concept to the Heykers, called Yaris Cross based on the facelifted regular Yaris Hatchback.
The Yaris ATIV sedan was launched in Thailand on 15 August 2017, using the same 1.2 liter engine as the Thai market XP150 model Yaris hatchback, with updated bodywork (later used in the facelifted regular Yaris). The Yaris ATIV is positioned below the Vios in its sedan lineup.
Models offered are as follows: J ECO, J, E, G and S. The ATIV is uses the XP150 Vios platform and roof, but with the front end design cues from the facelifted Yaris hatchback, and its own newly-designed tail.
