Toyota, through its local distributor Al-Futtaim Motors, has launched the Toyota Yaris sedan in the UAE for a starting price tag of AED 59,900 (Rs 10.60 Lakh). Toyota also sells the Yaris hatchback in the Middle-East country, and hence calling the three-boxed version as the Yaris sedan. Like the India-spec model, the Toyota Yaris in the UAE is powered by only a 1.5-Litre Dual VVT-i petrol engine.
Showcased at the Auto Expo 2018, Toyota confirmed that the India-spec model will only be powered by a petrol motor, and they don’t have any plan to launch Diesel Yaris anytime soon. There are some reports suggesting Toyota might axe a diesel engine from the entire lineup in the coming years, given how countries are pursuing diesel ban.
This four-cylinder mill produces 105 hp at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. The engine is mated to a CVT gearbox which is standard in the UAE. However, Indian buyers will have an option of 6-speed manual transmission. The UAE-spec version is rated at a fuel economy of 20 kmpl.
The Indian-spec Yaris features automatic, projector headlamps with LED light guide, LED DRLs, electrically adjustable and retractable ORVMs, 15-inch alloy wheels, tail lamps with LED light guide and Shark-fin antenna.

On the electronic front, the Toyota Yaris gets tyre pressure monitoring system, front and rear parking sensors, VSC, TRC, HAC and reverse camera.
