2017 Toyota Yaris iA vs Mazda 2 sedan: Photo comparison

Toyota sells the Mexico built Mazda 2 in the US because it didn’t develop a sedan version of the XP130 Yaris, and didn’t want to federalize the cheaper XP150 Yaris/Vios sold in Asia and Latin America.

Fewer changes at the back. The taillamps have a gray backing in the Yaris iA, while they're red on the Mazda 2.

The Yaris iA has fewer fancy options than the Mazda 2 sold in Europe and Japan, but the interior and infotainment systems are the same, except the badges.
