Depends on where they build it. As of now, Yaris Cross will only be built in Japan and France, both countries with significantly higher manufacturing costs than Mexico, where the North America Yaris was built.With the Yaris sedan and hatch going away in the US, I wonder if there's a chance this might come instead?
That Mazda plant in Salamanca, Mexico currently builds Mazda2, Mazda3 and CX-30. A "Toyotaized" version of CX-30 would probably overlap too much with C-HR and the upcoming Corolla Cross. On the other hand, the current Mazda2 is near the end of its life cycle, and the made-in-Japan Mazda CX-3 isn't too far behind. Nobody has said this, but I could see Mazda's Mexico plant adding a B-segment CX-20 crossover as a replacement for both and offering Toyota a rebadged version of that.
