2020 Toyota Yaris XLE hatchback (United States)

In 2014, Mazda de México Vehicle Operation began production of the Mazda 2 in Salamanca, Guanajuato for various North and South American markets. This plant also produces a sedan version of the Mazda2 for Toyota with minor styling changes, with the vehicle sold in the United States as the Scion iA and in Canada as the Yaris sedan. The car is sold in Mexico as the Yaris R.

The Scion iA was the marque's first and only 4-door sedan and the first and only model not to be built in Japan.

In the United States, the Scion iA sold 7,605 units in 2015. Due to the discontinuation of the Scion marque, the model was re-branded as the Toyota Yaris iA from August 2016 for the 2017 model year.

In Canada, the Yaris features a 106 hp (79 kW), 1.5-liter ZY-VE four-cylinder engine with both six-speed manual and automatic transmission options. Features include power-adjustable heated exterior mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control, power windows and power door locks.

In Mexico, the Mazda 2-based Yaris R is sold alongside the more austere and lower-priced Yaris Sedán, which from early 2018 is a version of the Asian-market Toyota Yaris ATIV, and was previously a variant of the Toyota Vios. The Yaris R sold in three versions. However unlike the Canadian version and the Scion iA, the Yaris R does not feature cruise control nor a pre-collision warning system, and it is the only version of the rebadged sedan which has a leather steering wheel.[citation needed]

For the 2019 model year, the United States version was renamed again as the Yaris sedan, receiving a minor facelift with a new grille insert and trim changes. Unlike the previous models, which offered only exterior colors and a choice between 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmissions as factory options, both the United States and Canadian 2019 Yaris sedans are offered in L, LE and XLE trims with a variety of interior and exterior options.

In 2019, the Mazda 2 hatchback was rebadged as the Yaris hatchback with a front fascia similar to that of the Yaris sedan, for the 2020 model year. The new model made its debut at the 2019 New York International Auto Show in April of that year. The United States and Canadian market 2020 Yaris hatchback is offered in LE and XLE trims. In the United States, this vehicle replaced the XP130 Vitz-based Yaris Liftback, which was discontinued in January 2019. Unlike the United States, XP130 sales continued in Canada for the 2019 model year, similarly being replaced by the rebadged Mazda 2 hatchback for the 2020 model year.
