Despite being a prominent player in the utility vehicle space, Toyota's small car foray wasn't as successful as envisioned with the Etios series. The Etios sedan and Liva hatchback were criticized for its lacklustre design and sales are underwhelming compared to rivals. Toyota seems to have addressed this issue and the Yaris is a looker. The sedan has a contemporary design that has been inspired by the Corolla Altis. The slim and wide wraparound headlamps and taillamps, and a sporty bumper with black inserts are in line with company's global design language.
2018 Toyota Yaris gets Piano Black upholstery. The sedan gets hand/air gesture controlled infotainment system with touchscreen navigation, faux leather seats, cruise control and steering-mounted controls. The Yaris also comes with electrically powered driver seat, push the start button and ambient illumination for rear passengers.
Interestingly, the Yaris is offered only in petrol engine option. The 1.5-liter Dual VVT-i engine will develop 105bhp at 6,000rpm and 140Nm of torque at 4,200rpm. The mill will come mated to either seven-speed continuously variable transmission (CVT) or six-speed manual transmission. The CVT variants will get paddle shifters.
