Four-door Yaris for the U.S.

Since its introduction in the U.S., the Toyota Yaris has been available as a two-door hatchback and a four-door sedan. Just about everywhere else in the world, a five-door hatchback has been available, too and now the U.S. can be added to the list according to both Autoblog and Motor Trend.

Many Yaris enthusiasts, including myself, figured since the Scion xD was based on the Yaris chassis, we'd never see the five-door in the U.S. However, this apparently isn't the case.

I personally love the five-door, and would've bought one instead of my two-door, simply for ease of access for passengers. Since Yaris sales have been up more than 50% over last year, it makes sense to to increase it's presence, and compete more directly with the Honda Fit and Nissan Versa.
