Toyota calls the subcompact 2015 Yaris hatchback "redesigned," but it's really just a refresh of the current generation, which dates back to the 2012 model year. The 2015 model gets a lot of visual updates; chief among the updates are a reworked nose with a deeper, Darth Vader-like maw that stretches from the grille to the lower bumper.

The Sith have infiltrated Toyota, whose Avalon and refreshed Camry sport similar bumper treatments. And so it goes with the Yaris — at least the range-topping Yaris SE four-door hatchback, which is what you see in these photos Toyota released. The car also comes in base L and midlevel LE trims, which are also available in two-door hatchback form. (The SE is four-door hatch only.)
