The Toyota Belta, referred to in North American and Australian markets as the Toyota Yaris and in South Asian markets as the Toyota Vios, is a subcompact sedan manufactured by Toyota. The successor to the discontinued Toyota Platz sedan, the Belta has increased in size over the previous generation such that its interior volume is larger than the - Corolla. The Belta went on sale in Japan on November 28, 2005 equipped with 1.0- to 1.3-liter engines. Export sales began in 2006, with some markets receiving a 1.5-liter engine either as standard fitment or as an optional upgrade. For most Asian markets (except Japan), the Belta is built and assembled in Thailand and the Philippines. For the Japanese, American and Middle Eastern markets (except Israel and Morocco) the Belta is built in Japan.
