2018 Toyota Yaris Specifications, Review, Expected price in India.
Toyota India showcased their all-new premium sedan Toyota Yaris earlier this year at the 2018 Auto Expo event.
The Japanese automaker looks to create an aura of its own with their latest offering, very similar to what Honda City did in the Indian market. The Car is the first offering in the C-sedan segment by Toyota.
The Toyota Yaris dealers have already started accepting the bookings for the premium sedan with a token amount of Rs. 50,000 and furthermore is expected to be launched by mid-May.
It is only fair to look into the specification and have our say on the latest offering, the Toyota Yaris 2018.
The Toyota Yaris gets its looks inspired from its elder siblings, the Corolla Altis and Toyota Camry. It is obviously a very affordable version as compared to its near siblings.
The sedan has a futuristic look with many bold elements used in the design. The Car looks real aggressive with huge sweptback headlamps. The projector headlamps have LED daytime running lights.
The front grills come with glossy back slats and rounded fog lamps neatly installed into the large grills, which further adds to the aggressive appeal of the Yaris 2018.
The rear side of the sedan is more sophisticated and looks charming to the eye. Fog lamps are also installed at the rear side.
As far as dimensions are concerned, it is marginally shorter than its near rivals Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. Thus can be easier to use in congested areas, but then again you may have to compromise on internal space.
The 2018 sedan comes with multi-spoke alloys and a premium looking chrome handle on the doors. Other features are electrically adjustable Outside Rear View Mirror (ORVM) and rain sensing wipers.
