Ranging from Rs 8.75 – Rs 14.07 lakhs, the all-new Toyota Yaris is Toyota’s first C-segment in India will be available in four variants, namely J, G, V and VX and each variant will be available in a CVT guise as well. All variants make do with 15-inch wheels, which look puny when compared to the 16-inch units offered with the competition. The Toyota Yaris is the Japanese carmaker’s first-ever offering in the Indian C-sedan segment which is currently dominated by the Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna.
And not just that, for starters, Toyota has equipped the Yaris with lots of safety features as standard across the range. All four variants get seven airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, central locking, and ISOFIX child seat mounts as standard. The higher variants are more equipped get a hill-start assist, vehicle stability control, front and rear parking sensors, front and rear fog lamps and a rear camera too.
Moreover, The Yaris is powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine where the petrol motor shares its block with the Etios’ 1.5-litre unit. However, it gets variable valve timing, which takes the total power output to 107PS. Whereas the fuel efficiency figures are 17.1kmpl for the manual and 17.8kmpl for the CVT-equipped version.
Coming to its looks and interior view, the 2018 Yaris packs segment-first roof-mounted rear AV vents with inbuilt ambient lighting. The top three variants get a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. And although the top-spec variant gets cool gesture control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are something that’s missing out. The seats are quite plush and the driver’s chair is electronically adjustable too making it way better comfortable. Being a bit narrow from inside, the sedan is best suited for four adults only. But, the space for the middle passenger in the rear bench is best suited for kids as the center storage eats into the rear legroom quite a bit.
Besides, the Toyota Yaris comes with vibrant colors like Super White, Classic Silver Metallic, Magnetic Gray Metallic, Black Sand Pearl, Ruby Flare Pearl, Blue Eclipse Metallic, Ruby Flare Pearl / Black Sand Pearl, Blue Eclipse Metallic / Black Sand Pearl furnishing an extraordinary ambiance to it.
