Toyota's updated Yaris hatch has been revealed further this week, with the European model making its debut just one month on from the unveiling of the Japanese 'Vitz' version.

Due in Australia from September, the 2015 Yaris brings a refreshed look and new features, along with the deletion of the three-door bodystyle.

Toyota Australia sales boss Tony Cramb said that the decision to cancel the three-door Yaris models was driven largely by customer demand - or a lack thereof.

"Five-door hatches have gained in popularity and now contribute close to 90 percent of total sales in the light-car segment," Mr Cramb said.

"Customers are telling our dealers they love the compact size of Yaris while also wanting the flexibility of having two extra doors.”

That preference for practicality, Mr Cramb said, has seen sales of three-door hatches fall from one quarter of total demand in 2008 to single digits in 2013.

"During the same period, sales of five-door hatches have grown from two-thirds of total demand and now represent almost nine out of every 10 sales,” he added.

On the styling front, the updated Yaris gets new re-styled headlights, along with a new grille and - depending on the model - a series of revised bumper designs. Restyled tail-lights are also featured.

Toyota calls the updated Yaris design an example of its new “Keen Look” styling language, which has also been utilised with the redesigned Camry sedan revealed last week.

In the cabin, the light hatch has been given a more premium look, gaining a larger display screen, along with new silver and gloss black highlights and - in the RS model available in some markets - a meatier steering wheel with contrast stitching.

In Europe, powertrains in the updated Yaris will range from a pair of petrol options, through to a small diesel and a hybrid model.

Australian options are expected to stick with petrol however, with the existing 1.3 and 1.5 litre units likely to carry over.

Watch for Australian details to become clear closer to the updated model’s September launch.
