The Toyota Yaris is the Toyotas new compact sedan of the C segment. With the Toyota Corolla competing with the Hondas civic, the Honda city of the compact sedan class kept selling without any competitor. To get into the compact sedan class or the C segment, Toyota plans to introduce the Yaris in Pakistan. It will be launched to compete with the Honda City, the Hyundai Verna and the Suzuki Ciaz.The car is also called the Vios but Toyota chose Yaris the name for the Indo-Pak region as it has a youthful feeling to it.
The earlier model of the Yaris is sold under the name of Vitz in Pakistan. This model is a hatchback, unlike the new model which would be launched as the Yaris. As the car is still not launched hence the specifications are not known but we are sure it would be feature loaded. There will be only two variants, V and VX. The two variants would have the same engine, a 1.5L inline 4 cylinder which would come with both manual and automatic transmissions. Moreover, as the Toyota car is of the compact sedan class, it will surely have a good fuel mileage and would be made as practical as possible. Diesel engines are not heard to be introduced as they are not very popular in Pakistan.
