Spy photographers have managed to catch the first images of the 2012 Toyota Yaris.

Undergoing testing in Germany, the five-door hatchback features a slimmer C-pillar, a sportier greenhouse, a recessed tailgate, and a Verso-S front end. Inside, the cockpit boasts a revised steering wheel and possibly - mercifully - an instrument cluster that is actually in front of the driver.

Under the hood, power will likely be provided by the usual assortment of three- and four-cylinder engines. Eventually, a hybrid will be available.
