Toyota’s Yaris sedan will go up against the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz

Toyota Yaris

Toyota has revealed the Yaris at the ongoing Auto Expo 2018. The sedan is known as 'Yaris Ativ' in the Thai market and made its global premiere there in August 2017. The Toyota Yaris will be launched in April 2018 and will take on the likes of the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, among others in the midsize sedan segment. 

So, here’s what you can expect from the Toyota sedan.

Design

Toyota Yaris

The Yaris’ design is inspired by the Corolla Altis and the Camry. Up front, it gets a large air dam and a sleek grille flanked by upward-sweeping halogen projector headlamps. The daytime running LEDs are situated below the headlamps at the extremities of the air dam. The front fascia appears a bit busy compared to, say, the Corolla Altis or some of the other sedans in its segment. The rear profile, on the other hand, looks a lot more mature with wraparound tail lamps with LED inserts and an integrated lip spoiler.

So, the Yaris is a touch smaller than its rivals; most notably, the wheelbase is 100mm smaller than the Ciaz. On the inside, the Yaris features a dual-tone beige and black-themed dash. A 7-inch infotainment system sits horizontally on top of the central console. Sadly, it doesn’t support Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, which has become a norm now. In terms of features, it gets powered driver's seat, roof mounted AC unit with Innova Crysta-like ambient lighting, rear sunshade, among others.        

As for the safety features, the Yaris packs up to 7 airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system, front and rear parking sensors, vehicle stability control and hill-start assist, ABS (anti-lock brakes) with EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) and brake assist, all-four disc brakes and Isofix child seat anchors, among others.

Engine And Transmission

At the time of launch, the Toyota Yaris will only be available with a 1.5-litre petrol engine coupled to either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed CVT auto. The Japanese automaker has not revealed the specs of the Yaris sedan as of yet, but they are likely to be at par with the Honda City.

    Speaking of engine options, the Yaris can be had with either a 1.5-litre petrol engine. Toyota states that the diesel engine isn't BSVI ready yet, so the Yaris will be available only with a petrol engine for now. This unit makes 108PS of power and 140Nm of torque. While transmission options include a 7-speed automatic and a 6-speed manual gearbox.
