Thanks to a new partnership with Mazda, the next Toyota Yaris will be a rebadged Mazda 2 sedan, which is apparent in the test mule’s taillight, boot lid, and bumper design.

The Mazda 2 sold in other markets gets 16-inch aluminum wheels, turn-signal indicators in the side mirrors, and a forward-collision warning system, while the interior comes with cruise control, air conditioning, keyless entry, push-button ignition, and a backup camera.

Under the hood is Mazda 2’s 1.5-liter Skyactiv four-cylinder, although it is likely to not wear the Skyactiv branding. With direct injection and a 12.0:1 compression ratio, it produces 106 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,000 revs; it will be offered with a choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions.
