Images of the facelifted Asian-market Toyota Vitz, which appears in Europe as the Yaris, have leaked online.

Toyota officials have confirmed the minor styling changes to the car's bodywork and interior will be coming to the UK, with customers able to order the updated model in May. The company has also hinted that, unlike other facelifted models, a price increase over the current Yaris is not expected. Today's Yaris starts from £9995.

As these leaked images, posted on an Italian automotive blog and reportedly scanned from a Japanese brochure show, changes to the Yaris' styling are minor and bring it more in line with the current Yaris Hybrid. A more aggressive front fascia can be seen alongside a more prominent front grille. New headlight designs can also be seen.

Inside, the updated Aygo keeps its minimalist, buttonless design, but gains a more premium look throughout. A higher-resolution touch-screen infotainment interface can be seen in the leaked images, alongside an updated multi-function steering wheel.

Toyota has already confirmed the Vitz RS version seen in these images won't be coming to the UK. That car sports a new X-shaped front-end design reminiscent of the new Toyota Aygo, revealed at the Geneva motor show earlier this month.

The company says the Aygo's X-faced design will not become a hallmark of its future cars.
