Toyota Yaris: Overview
The vehicle is already in production. Consequently, expect the car to reach showrooms by the end of April this year. The Toyota Yaris is going to come with a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine. This motor will produce 108 BHP of power along with 137 Nm of peak torque. The sedan is going to get a 6-speed manual gearbox as standard. Furthermore, the mid-size sedan is also going to come with a 7-step CVT gearbox.
We expect the Yaris to fall in the price range of INR 8 lakh to 13 lakh. Hence, it will sit in-between the Etios and the Corolla Altis in Toyota’s model line-up. It will compete in the mid-size sedan segment in India. Consequently, it will pitch against the likes of Honda City. Maruti Ciaz and the Hyundai Verna.
