Toyota is all set to officially launch the new Yaris sedan in India tomorrow, on May 17. The company had announced the prices for the Toyota Yaris last month when it started accepting bookings for the car. Priced from Rs. 8.75 lakh to Rs. 14.07 lakh, the Yaris come with only one 1.5-litre petrol engine on offer and in manual and automatic option. The car is primarily available in four variants - J, G, V, and VX, which are further segmented into eight iterations based on engine and transmission option. In India, the Yaris takes on segment leaders like - the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Volkswagen Vento, and of course, the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. To make it a fair fight, Toyota has equipped the car with a host of smart and safety features right from the base model and here's a detailed variant-wise explanation.
