Best years to buy in Canada (hatch)

Howdy all! Trying to better understand which are the best years for the yaris here in Canada. I've been reading and understand the hatch changed from the true Yaris to a rebadged Mazda 2 but I can't seem to find out exactly what year this happened. In my mind I feel like I'd rather a true Toyota Yaris as opposed to the new Mazda version but maybe I'm just crazy?

Any thoughts?

06-19 are the years you want for a true Toyota built Yaris. I recommend the 2012+ hatches, the interiors won't make you vomit and they drive better.

Just out of curiosity, what makes Gen 3s drive better than Gen 2s?

In Canada, you want 2006-2011. I have a 2006 2 door RS, and 2009 4 door RS. I recommend 2009-2011 RS', because just look at that!

Parts are so readily available from those years now, for next to nothing. At the auto recycler. Every time I go to Pic N Save, or U-Pull there's always what I need. Love it! I never have seen any other generation for parts.

As well as, they have true lay flat rear fold down seats. The newer Yaris lost that feature. Plus they are, "Made in Japan!" not France.

You can import better motor swaps from around the globe. Such as a 1.4 Turbo. Are you into car audio? Radio head units are easy to upgrade.

I have experience with Mazda, and they are garbage! I have absolutely nothing good to say about them, what so ever...
