Toyota has always been known for trust , reliability and a brand with good resale value and great resale value .
Toyota has always enjoyed best sales as far as suv ,muv and d segment are considered but it lacked a product in the c segment .
The launch of new generation verna heated up the c segment in india , giving tough fight to the competitors like honda city , ciaz , volkwagen vento and now Toyota is all set to enter the c segment with the all new yaris with some of segment first features and some best in class features .
Toyota has already started taking bookings for the yaris with a token amount of 50,000 rupees and the launch is expected to be around may 2018
- EXTERIORS –From the outside the yaris takes tge design cues from its elder siblings the camry and the corolla altis which is indeed great as these cars are superb in practicality and looks too .For starters Yaris gets a set of swept back projector halogen headlights , DRL’s mounted in the front bumper and a large air dam for proper functionality of the car .
There is minimal or no use of chrome in the yaris whether it is the sides , front or rear .
Overall the yaris is a mature looking car and is preferable for those who want no non- sense car .
- INTERIORS AND FEATURES –The car’s dashboard comes with a combination of beige and black dual tone interiors just like the corolla and it looks sophisticated and clean .However the infotainment system which is 7 inches in size misses out on android auto and apple car play which has become a norm now .
The yaris gets rear ac mounted in the roof just like the innova crysta which is segment first .
Some of the highlights of the yaris are
Abs with EBD
LED REAR LIGHT
- ENGINE DETAILS , PRICING , LAUNCH DATE –Yaris will come with only petrol option with 1.5 litre VVT-I with 6 speed manual and 7 speed CVT . The biggest drawback though will be a no diesel option as every rival of yaris have diesel option with themThe yaris is expected to be priced about 8-10 lakhs which will undercut its rivals
And the deliveries will commence in may 2018
