The Yaris is a global offering from Toyota, which made its debut into the Indian market last year. The price of the Toyota Yaris in India starts at Rs 9.26 lakh and the figure reaches up till Rs 14.07 lakh for the top end variant (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi)
The Yaris in typical Toyota fashion is a safely designed car with looks which are easy on the eye. A global model which is highly popular, the design is full of soft curves which make things appear pleasing rather than striking. Up front, the bonnet's nose dives right into the bumper and is flanked by tiny openings for the grille. The stretched headlamp cluster extends beyond the bumper and features a twin-pod setup for headlights. There are separate LED DRLs and fog lamps for assistance too.
The Toyota Yaris comes equipped with 15-inch alloy wheels and the mirrors above can be electronically adjusted and come with integrated side blinkers. At the rear, like the headlights, the taillamp cluster has been stretched too and does lend the rear with a lot of visual width. In terms of features, the car gets auto headlamps, hill-start assist, a tyre pressure monitoring system, vehicle stability control and a reversing camera. The boot offers 476 litres of space and the fuel tank can hold 42 litres of petrol at one go.
Overall, the Yaris looks like a premium product and its build quality will have you believe so too. It’s an international product, and while it isn’t too flashy, the Yaris looks like a well-finished product in the flesh.
The Toyota Yaris comes with a black and beige treatment for the cabin, which looks quite premium. Taking centre stage is a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system which comes with a segment-first gesture control feature. The driver can access the infotainment system with the help of steering mounted switches too. The seats offer an adequate amount of side and under thigh support and there's adequate space at the back too. Talking about seats, the Yaris boasts of a powered driver seat which is another segment-first.
The front door panels have space for a large-sized one-litre bottle, though the rear panels can store only a half litre unit. The rear passengers also get a central armrest with a pair of cup-holders. The Toyota Yaris employs a smart smart looking instrument cluster, which features an analogue tachometer on the left and an analogue speedometer in the middle along with a TFT digital coloured display on the right which displays information regarding fuel, gear shift, time, temperature and much more. Rear passengers get roof-mounted AC vents with ambient lighting and an armrest with cup holders. All-leather seats can be opted for too.
The Toyota Yaris is built on a strong and sturdy body frame. The car comes with safety features like ABS with EBD, BA (brake assist), central locking and an engine immobilizer as standard. What makes it stand apart is the fact the all variants come with 7 Airbags as standard. Other safety features include parking sensors (front and rear), reverse parking camera and four disc brakes on the top two trim levels.
The all-new Yaris is propelled by a 1495cc, VVT-i petrol mill which is good at churning out respective power and torque output of 107 ps at 6000 rpm 140 Nm at 4200 rpm. The 1.5-litre petrol unit comes paired with a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed CVT-i transmission. There's no diesel engine on offer right now.
The petrol mill is fuel-efficient and offers a claimed mileage of 17.1 km/l for the manual and 17.8 km/l for the auto variant. The engine isn’t class leading in terms of power, with the Honda City and the Hyundai Verna delivering better figures, though it’s better than the Ciaz and the Skoda Rapid. It scores pretty well when it comes to real-world performance though and combined with great ride quality and a smooth shifting CVT, the Yaris is a comfortable car to travel in.
Toyota Yaris price starts from INR 9.29 Lakh to INR 14.07 Lakh.
