2012 Toyota Yaris – Click above for high-res image gallery

The subcompact B-segment is where it's at these days. This once-overlooked segment of vehicles has been booming lately, what with recent additions like the Ford Fiesta and Mazda2, not to mention soon-to-be-released models like the Chevrolet Sonic, Nissan Versa, Hyundai Accent and Kia Rio. Toyota is a player in this segment, but the Yaris, isn't exactly aging too well, but a brand new version is just around the corner. That is, if these photos from a Hungarian Toyota dealership's Facebook page are anything to go on.

This stylish new Yaris looks to be the end result of what renderings and spy shots have foretold, though it's still unclear whether or not this is indeed the car that will be sold here in the United States – this could simply be the Euro-market Yaris. Either way, if this new hatchback is destined for consumption here in the States, we'll likely hear about it within the coming months.

      "Toyota is a player in this segment, but the Yaris, isn't exactly aging too well, but a brand new version is just around the corner." One more comma and that sentence will be perfect.

      Looks better. I could see it with a TRD superchager, TRD lowering springs and a nice set of Wheels. Nice little car if you ask me. Has potential.

      Looks much better than the current model. Could steal sales from the Versa

      I hope so, it looks slightly better than the previous rendition of un-thrilling, economic blunder.

      Looks like it's Auris-size... Good thing or bad thing? Dunno, kinda makes it lose its cheekyness. Well, at least even more than the Mk2 had lost already...

      "Are you the new Toyota Yaris"? Um, the license plate says "New Yaris", so, yeah. It probably is.

      Looks like Beige is trying to add style...

      "Once-overlooked"? Depends what continent you're on. This doesn't look like a huge departure from the current model. "Stylish" wouldn't be the word I'd choose. More like "bland".
