Toyota Yaris is a much-awaited car in the Indian market. For the first time, Toyota will enter the segment that already sees stiff competition between Honda City, Maruti Ciaz and Hyundai Verna. Toyota being a reputed manufacturer in the Indian market can create a trouble for the existing vehicles in the segment.
The all-new car from the Japanese brand will be launched somewhere around May 2018 in India. As Toyota’s is the highest selling brand in three different segments in India, it poses a serious threat to the rivals with the arrival of the Yaris. The Yaris will come only with a petrol engine in the Indian market. It will be powered by the 1.5-liter petrol engine with a four cylinder layout. The naturally aspirated petrol motor will produce about 108 Bhp-140 Nm. A 6 speed manual and CVT automatic gearbox with 7 stepped shifts will be offered on the car.
The Yaris is also one of the most equipped cars in the segment. It will get a host of segment-first features in India that will attract a lot of people. The car gets roof-mounted AC vents for the rear and front passengers. It can be turned into front-only when needed. There are 7-airbags, proximity sensors at the front, 60:40 split seats, three neck restraints at the rear, ambient lighting, electrically adjustable seat, disc brake on all the wheels, hill start, ABS, EBD and ESP. All the features will make the Yaris an attractive choice in the segment.
