Unlike the B-segment sedan, the B-segment hatchback isn’t as popular in Thailand. But it is definitely heating up.

Topping the B-segment hatchback sales chart for the month of October is the Toyota Yaris which was given a facelift back in August. Toyota sold 2,538 units of the Yaris in the month of October.

The Thai-spec Yaris facelift, just like the incoming Malaysian-spec, is equipped with Toyota Safety Sense ADAS suite including pre-collision system (AEB) and lane departure warning.

However, the Thai-spec Yaris does come with more colour options including the two-toned light blue and black as seen above.

Meanwhile, trailing behind the Yaris is the Honda Jazz with 1,694 units sold. However, the time for the Jazz is running out in Thailand as it is replaced by the newly launched City Hatchback.

Headlight Magazine predicted that the City Hatchback would eventually bump the Yaris off the top spot to take number one come January 2021, emulating the successful sales figures of the City sedan.

Overall, for the first ten months of 2020, the Toyota Yaris kept its lead as the best-selling B-segment hatchback in Thailand with 19,178 units in total. This gave the Yaris a 30.9% market share.

This is followed by the Honda Jazz (12,456 units), the Suzuki Swift (7,957 units), the Mazda 2 Hatchback (5,511 units), and the Nissan Note (3,936 units) completing the Top 5.
