The Yaris is Toyota's first attempt at entering the highly contested compact sedan category in India. Over the years, the segment has gradually expanded and the Yaris lands right between some seasoned players in the market.  There's the the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna, Honda City, Skoda Rapid and the Volkswagen Vento that it takes on but of course, it has had a chance to examine this segment carefully and work on the Yaris accordingly. The prices for the Yaris range from Rs 8.75-12.85 lakh (ex-showroom India) for the petrol manual variants and from Rs 9.95-14.07 lakh for the petrol automatics. 

In terms of equipment, the top of the line Toyota Yaris offers leather interiors, a touchscreen infotainment system and cruise control. It also offers roof mounted AC vents - a first in class and very useful feature along with inbuilt ambient lighting. The Toyota Yaris also offers features like a start-stop button, automatic climate control but misses out of features like Apple Carplay and Android Auto. In terms of safety, the Yaris is the best equipped with 7 airbags, ABS and EBD and four wheel disc brakes. The Yaris also gets a rear parking camera and both rear and front parking sensors.

The other feature that the Toyota Yaris currently misses out on is a diesel engine. While all its competitors get a diesel motor, the Yaris is only offered with a 1.5-litre petrol engine that makes 108 bhp of peak power and 140 Nm of peak torque. That said, you do get the option of choosing a manual 6-speed gearbox or the Toyota Yaris automatic with a CVT option. The top of the line CVT also gets paddle shifters.
