In addition to losing the iA badge, the 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan is also now cheaper than last year’s model. The 2019 Yaris sedan is $500 cheaper than the old Yaris iA with a starting price set at $16,370, including the destination fees.
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.
The 2019 Yaris sedan will be offered in three trim levels: L, LE and XLE. The top XLE trim level is priced at $19,470 and makes the Yaris sedan feel a bit more luxurious with its leatherette front seats, leather-trimmed steering wheel, shift knob and parking brake, automatic climate control, automatic LED headlights, and rain-sensing wipers.
The 2019 Toyota Yaris sedan will be offered in seven colors: Frost, Chromium, Graphite, Stealth, Sapphire, Pulse and Icicle. The 2019 Yaris sedan is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 106 horsepower and 103 lb-ft. of torque that can be mated to either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The Yaris sedan with the 6-speed automatic transmission is rated at 32 mpg in the city, and 40 mpg on the highway. The six-speed manual is rated at 30 mpg in the city and 39 mpg on the highway.
