For 2020, the Mazda-built Yaris Sedan spawns a Hatchback variant, which replaces the lackluster Toyota-made Yaris Liftback offered in previous model years. The new Yaris Hatchback is available in LE and XLE trims and is priced identically to the sedan. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also made standard across the board for 2020.

Which Yaris is the Best?
Whenever the option is presented, we always recommend going with the hatchback, as its added practicality will certainly pay dividends over the course of your ownership. This is especially true in the case of the Yaris, as the hatchback costs the same as the sedan, which isn't usually the case. If you were planning to go with an automatic transmission anyway, we'd recommend getting the range-topping Yaris Hatchback XLE. For $1,000 more than the automatic-equipped LE, you get a bunch of equipment that'll make this economy car feel a lot more special. Find a Toyota Yaris for sale
How Much Does a 2021 Toyota Yaris Cost?
The 2020 Toyota Yaris Sedan is available in L, LE and XLE trim levels, while the new-for-2020 Hatchback comes only in LE and XLE trims.
Standard equipment on the L ($16,605) includes 15-in steel wheels, a low-speed forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking system, a backup camera, keyless entry, full power accessories (lock, windows, mirrors), air conditioning, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver's seat, cloth upholstery, Mazda's infotainment system (center console controller, a 7-in screen that's touch-operated when the car is stopped), Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, two USB ports, an auxiliary audio jack, Bluetooth, HD and satellite radios and a 6-speaker sound system.
The LE ($17,605) adds 16-in alloy wheels, fog lights, heated mirrors, proximity entry, push-button start and a rear spoiler.
Both the L and LE come standard with a manual transmission but a 6-speed automatic is a $1,110 option.
The XLE ($19,705) comes only with an automatic transmission and adds automatic LED headlights, LED running lights, automatic wipers, a Sport driving mode, automatic climate control, simulated leather upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Is the 2021 Toyota Yaris a Safe Car?
The Yaris comes standard with a forward collision alert system with automatic emergency braking and rain-sensing windshield wipers, along with front-side airbags, side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes and a backup camera, which is now required by law.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Yaris Sedan its best possible 5-star rating in the overall, frontal- and side-impact categories. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it scores of Good across the board in all five crashworthiness categories in which it was tested. Otherwise, though, the Yaris comes up a little short. Headlights were given a Poor due to inadequate visibility, the vehicle's LATCH child safety system was given a Marginal for its overall ease-of-use and while the automatic emergency braking system performed as advertised in the 12 mph test, it failed to function at all in the Institute's 25 mph test.
