Which Toyota models will leave the market?
Japanese manufacturer decided to follow the example of General Motors and Ford. The U.S. model line will shrink, but who is the weakest link? Sales of the compact Yaris hatchback in the U.S. turned out to be so low that Toyota decided to retire it.

Total – minus 77.6% for the year. It would not be superfluous to give an example of the European market, where 202,767 Toyota Yaris were bought during 11 months of 2018.
By the way, in America you can buy a sedan with exactly the same name. It is a slightly “combed” Mazda 2. The car disperse much better – 35,000 people became happy owners of the Japanese sedan in 2017, more than 25,000 in 2018.
The sedan will probably stay in line. Another “Japanese” Nissan Versa remains the undisputed leader of the segment. In 2017, almost 107 thousand of such vehicles were purchased, and in 2018 – 75 thousand.
