Toyota Yaris has been making waves ever since the unveiling at the Auto Expo last month and the word is that the Japanese carmaker has already started accepting bookings for the car. Well the news we bring to you today is that the deliveries will commence on the 24th of April.
So if we were to speculate a launch date we can certainly bet for a date week prior to that. Toyota Yaris will make a debut in the C-Segment in India and go up against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Honda City and Hyundai Verna. The customers have high hopes from the car which will try to bring the comfort of a D-Segment car like Corolla on a budget.
Toyota Yaris Has Some First In Class Features
Although achieving a pricing like the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz is a task next to impossible, the Toyota Yaris will lure in the customers with some first in class features that are unheard of in this segment. The car intends to appeal to the more premium buyer of the segment that is looking for a vehicle with comfort and luxury as the priority. In other words it is the Honda City that needs to hold its ground when the Toyota Yaris launches in India.
The Japanese carmaker has equipped the Toyota Yaris with an electrically adjustable driver’s seat, ambient lighting, tyre pressure monitoring system and more. It also gets roof mounted AC Vents which in return make more leg room for the middle passenger on the rear seat. It will also get class leading 7 airbags which includes an additional driver knee airbag.
Toyota Yaris Price India and Launch Date
Toyota Yaris price in India is expected to start around 8.6 Lakh Rupees and you might have to pay around 14 Lakhs for the top end variants. In all honesty though, that is unlikely to happen since you can get a top end diesel Honda City for that kind of money. Since the Toyota Yaris is coming only with a petrol engine in India the most expensive models are certainly the ones with automatic transmissions.
