Pricing details have been released for the range of 2009 Toyota Yaris models, and the results show a mixed bag. The addition of the five-door model for 2009 has forced a shakeup in the pricing structure in order to accommodate the new model. The hat-shaped Yaris three-door gets a $655 bump up to $12,205, while the sedan drops from 13,965 to 12,965. The S Sedan goes up to $15,880 from $15,825; that leaves the new Yaris five-door model in between the sedan and the S sedan at $13,305. Options, of course, can drive the pricing into the lofty fifteen-grand range. So there you have it: If you want all the performance of a Geo Metro and that new car smell, you can now get it four different ways. Full release after the jump.
