Even with the name change, the 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan is still a rebadged Mazda2, which means it has little in common with the Yaris hatchback. For the 2019 model year the Yaris sedan gets a small facelift with a restyled grille, new piano black accents and more chrome trim to give it slightly more upscale look.
