Toyota’s rival to the Honda City will be available with a single petrol engine with the choice of a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed CVT in all four variants

Toyota Yaris

Toyota is all set to launch the Yaris sedan in India. Although the Japanese carmaker has not yet revealed the launch date, some suggest it will take place on May 18, 2018. Toyota’s dealers across the country have started accepting bookings for the sedan for a refundable amount of Rs 50,000, affirming the launch is just around the corner. But before its launch, a document depicting the Yaris’ variants and features was leaked, and here is what it reveals. Recommended: Toyota Yaris: Variants Explained


Toyota Yaris

The Yaris, as confirmed before, will only be available with a petrol engine. It will be a 1.5-litre engine that is expected to make 108PS of maximum power and 140Nm of peak torque. It will be available either with a 6-speed MT or a 7-speed CVT. As reported earlier, the CVT automatic will be offered right from the base ‘J’ variant till the top-spec ‘VX’ variant. However, only the top ‘VX’ variant will get paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.

 At launch, the Yaris will be the only car in its segment to offer seven airbags as standard. Safety features like ABS with EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) and BA (brake assist), ISOFIX child seat anchors and engine immobilizer will be available in all variants. The VX variant will also be equipped with front and rear parking sensors, parking camera, disc brakes on all wheels, vehicle stability control, hill-start assist control and tyre pressure monitoring system.
