Yaris is a great car with many first In segment features like rear and front parking sensors which nobody in this segment offers, electric front driver seat, tyre pressure monitoring system, 7 airbags (include knee airbags also), rear flat floor for rear middle passenger, roof-mounted AC vents and disc-brakes on all four wheels.
It offers a super smooth ride, it comes with a 1.5 litre 4 cylinder engine producing 108 BHP and 137 Nm of torque, it has gesture control in infotainment system which can be very helpful while driving.
The Yaris is offered in 14 variants J, J(O), J CVT, G, G(O), G CVT, V, V(O), V CVT, VX, VX CVT. All the variants are available in automatic transmission. All the variants from base to the top have 7 airbags
3. After-sales services
Toyota is best known for its after-sales services, low-cost maintenance and high resale value. Toyota is Build to last.
The design of the Toyota Yaris is a bit strange because the front end over done with extra-long headlights and wrong placement of the DRL's. On the side it's boring and the small 15 inch alloys adds up to the boringness.
2. Missing features
Despite getting many unique and new features but it lacks some common features which its competitor offers like a sunroof , apple car play and android auto, LED headlamps, 16-inch alloy wheels and the main thing it lacks is a diesel engine which every car at this price offers
The Toyota Yaris is priced little high starting from the base variant on-road Delhi: Rs10.40 lakhs all the way up to Rs 15.53 lakhs for VX and Rs 17 lakhs for the VX CVT.
The Toyota Yaris is a great car with many unique features but in our opinion, the top end VX variant isn’t worth instead the best and most value for money variant is the G variant with touch screen system, roof-mounted air vents, keyless entry and push-button start, etc.
If you just want the top-end variant of a car in petrol then the Honda City is the car to go for.
