Five-door hatch Toyota Yaris will make it to dealer showrooms in Europe later this year as a 2012 model.

These are the first official images of the upcoming 2012 Toyota Yaris European edition.

The model is due in dealer showrooms later this year while an official introduction is expected sometime before that, perhaps at the Frankfurt motor show in September.

The images published here show a rather different Yaris compared with its Japanese domestic market (JDM) sibling the Vitz. There are some changes to the front fascia. This euro-spec Yaris is sporting a design very much in keeping with the current overall paradigm for compact European hatches.
