The Event Will Commence Soon
We have reached the venue while Toyota is gearing up for the launch.
In the meantime, did you know that the Yaris comes with a rather unusual roof-mounted rear AC vents?
Offered Only In A Petrol Variant
The Toyota Yaris uses the same engine as in the Etios. However, the Toyota Etios lacks the Dual VVT-i system.
The Dual VVT-i system controls the intake and exhaust valves individually. This helps in giving better response and fuel efficiency.
The stage is set and the car is still under the cover.
'All Sense; All Sedan'
Toyota refers the Yaris as 'All Sense; All Sedan'. Do you agree with it?
The First Car In The Segment To Get Gesture Controls
The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment in the Yaris gets gesture controls. You can change the track, increase the volume or listen to the next radio station by swiping your palm in front of the system.
CVT Across All Variants
The Toyota Yaris is the only car in its segment to offer a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) option across all variants. The unit in question is a 7-step CVT and comes with paddle shifts.
1000 Deliveries To Happen Today
Toyota India will be doing over 1000 deliveries of the new Yaris, on the day of its launch.
Huge Demand And Anticipation
Toyota India claims that they've received over 60,000 customer enquiries for the Yaris.
Host Of Accessories
If you are really into chrome, then the Toyota Yaris can be opted with an abundance of it.
No Compromise In Safety
The Toyota Yaris is the first car in its segment to offer 7 airbags as standard.
Decent Mileage Figures
The Toyota Yaris has a claimed mileage of 17.1km/l for the manual and 17.8km/l for the CVT variant.
The Event Has Started
Toyota officials have started addressing the gathering, letting everyone know the achievements and future plans of the brand for the country.
Global Design Language
The Toyota Yaris follows the brand's global design language. The design has invited mixed opinions and we think the car looks a bit odd.
The Toned-Down Yaris Ativ
The Toyota Yaris we will be getting is a toned-down version of its international sibling, the Yaris Ativ. The India-spec Yaris rides on smaller wheels, but with higher ground clearance.
The Global Sedan
The Toyota Yaris is sold across 120 countries; India being the latest.
Lot Of Segment-First Features
As mentioned before, the Yaris gets a lot of segment-first features along with advanced technology.
Available Only In A Petrol Format
While the Yaris gets a 1.5-litre petrol engine with decent performance and fuel efficiency, the addition of a diesel unit is always welcome.
More On The Yaris's Styling
The interiors of the Yaris looks good, with nice fit and finish. It follows a conventional design format and is rather subtle compared to the exterior.
