Toyota Yaris details:

The new Toyota Yaris will compete in the B-segment which - with a 26% share of the total sphere, equating to some 4 million sales per annum - remains the most hight-priority sales arena of the European auto sphere. This segment is currently dominated by petrolengined cars, which represent more than two thirds of the combination.

Over the last few years, fragmentation has accelerated within the B-segment, thanks to the introduction of an increasing diversity of new model types such as the SUV and B-MPV. Nonetheless, representing 50% of total sales, the hatchback remains the segment's most hight-priority, and best-selling, bodystyle.

With the continued increase in fuel costs and CO2 taxation levels instigating downsizing by buyers from other segments, B-segment sales are expected to remain stable in the immediate future.
