The feature list that was leaked earlier did not reveal the India-spec Yaris’ engine specs and dimensions

Toyota’s entry into the midsize sedan segment of the country is just a few weeks away. After its variant-wise feature list was leaked last week the Japanese carmaker has now officially revealed detailed  specifications (dimensions, engine output and claimed fuel efficiency)  of the Toyota Yaris.  Toyota dealers are already accepting bookings for the Yaris at a  refundable amount of Rs 50,000. Let’s delve more into the details of the  upcoming sedan.

As expected, the Yaris will be on offer with only a petrol  engine in India. The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine on the Yaris  pumps out a max power of 107PS at 6000rpm and 140Nm of max torque at  4200rpm. The engine will be mated to either a 6-speed manual  transmission or a 7-speed CVT. The automatic transmission will be  available on the Yaris from the base J variant onwards. However, the  steering-mounted paddle shifters will be available on the top VX variant  only.

The Toyota Yaris will be as long and wide in India as it is  in Singapore, where Toyota launched it in late 2017. The India-spec  Yaris, though, is taller by 20mm. Compared to its rivals, it is the  shortest as far as its overall length is concerned but the widest on  paper. To the naked eye, however, the Yaris appears narrower than its  competition, but that could be down to how it’s designed.

Variant-wise features

Toyota Yaris J

The base variant of the Yaris gets below features:

-Projector headlamps

-7 airbags (driver+passenger+driver knee+side+curtain)

-Audio system with CD, MP3, Aux-in, Bluetooth connectivity and 4-speakers

-60:40 rear split seats

-Keyless entry

-Tilt steering

-Power windows

-ABS (anti-lock braking system) + EBD (electronic brake force distribution) + BA (brake assist)

-Central locking

Clearly, the Yaris’ base variant is quite loaded, which is why we  think it might not start at a very competitive price. There is a greater  focus on safety in this variant and it’s good to see a carmaker taking  that approach.

Toyota Yaris VX

The top-of-the-line VX variant of the Yaris gets the entire  feature-list the Yaris could offer. Here’s what it offers over and above  the V variant.

-Hill-start assist

-Vehicle stability control

-Tyre pressure monitoring system

-8-way power-adjustable driver seat height

-Leather-wrapped seats and door trim


-Chrome door handles

-MirrorLink, Wifi connectivity


The Misses

While the Yaris brings some segment-first features to the table,  there are also some features that it misses out on, like telescopic  steering wheel adjustment, a sunroof (offered in the Hyundai Verna and  the Honda City), 16-inch alloy wheels (only 15-inch alloy wheels are on  offer), a diesel engine, Android Auto & Apple CarPlay connectivity  and LED-powered headlamps.

Toyota is likely to price the Yaris at a premium among its  rivals, possibly in the band of Rs 9 lakh – Rs 14 lakh, ex-showroom  Delhi. It rivals the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the Honda City and the Hyundai Verna.
