Yeah, I read that it has a Mazda engine. But with a lifetime warranty, I have a lot less worry. Getting great MPG, and it’s a lot peppier than I thought it would be, based on reviews saying acceleration was lacking.
The blue Yaris in the YouTube pic above is the Toyota built hatchback, not the Mazda 2 based sedan. YT video is wrong, the "Scottie" guy is assuming ALL Yarises have Mazda engines, and even shows older hatchbacks. Don't believe something just because "its on You Tube".
There is supposed to be a new 2020 Yaris, to be shown at New York Auto Show, this spring.
