Toyota has officially presented to the world first details of the 2012 Yaris. Of course, a remodeled Vitz, Yaris is manufactured in France with the European specs. Not much information is available about the car from the motor maker, though.

What we know is that the vehicle will feature a 6.1-inch touchscreen display and also an option of three different engines –  a 1.0-liter VVT-i, a 1.33-liter dual VVT-i and a 1.4-liter D-4D diesel.

The 2012 Yaris would in fact be Toyota’s strongest offer yet in the important supermini segment. With its new levels of utmost quality and efficiency, we guess Toyota can build upon earlier successes and help Toyota pick up popularity in Europe. The Japanese major is eyeing the one million annual sales mark in the region during the medium term.

With a unique “compact outside, spacious inside,” packaging strategy, the Yaris is all set top thrill. Toyota plans to make the model available by this summer.

The Detroit Auto Show of 2011 will see the much anticipated Toyota Yaris, also known as the Vitz, showcased amid much fanfare.  What will get in stage is a concept version of the Vitz, and we have been lucky enough to catch hold of a few images of the car.

Going by what we see, the Toyota Vitz (aka Yaris) will come about as an updated Toyota vehicle . The images come courtesy of brochure leak, and do reveal a handful of info on the car. An aggressive front bumper, a  grille similar to what the Camry model sports, and a greenhouse, make the car worthy of a closer look.

The North American market is anticipating the vehicle . When the car rolls out of production facilities later on, it is likely to include a sporty body kit the Japanese market. We just hope, the same comes to American markets too.

The Yaris (Vitz, if you are ken on calling it by that name) will be powered by a variety of three- and four-cylinder engines, and it is expected that a hybrid version could also follow later on.
