Toyota showcased its much-awaited Yaris mid-size sedan for the first time in the country at the Auto Expo 2018. While everyone in India was anticipating the Vios sedan, Toyota showcased the Yaris sedan, pitting it in a segment dominated by cars like the new Hyundai Verna, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, and Honda City. Toyota has been immensely successful with the premium segment products and it was highly unlikely of the Japanese brand to not launch a mid-size sedan in India. However, looking at the product it is safe to say, whatever time Toyota took to develop this product for the domestic market, it didn’t go in vain. The car is positioned between the Etios and the Corolla Altis and here are the live updates from the official launch of Toyota Yaris sedan in India.

The built quality of the cabin is something we have to appreciate and none of the elements feel out of the place. The leather-wrapped steering wheel feels good to hold and gets rotary steering-mounted controls. Toyota has worked a lot on the build quality as well and all you need to do is listen to the sound of the closing door to understand it better.

Talking of the cabin, the Yaris resembles the design language of the exiting Toyota products in India, in a good way of course. The dual tone cabin with beige upholstery and black dashboard, along with a glossy touch makes it look premium. There’s a lot of aluminum brushed elements throughout the cabin, like on the waterfall center console, steering wheel and air-con vents.

Move to the side and you will see 15-inch alloy wheels, raised wheel arches and body lines making it look beefy. The rear resembles the old Corolla, with protruded tail lamps. In terms of the dimensions, the Yaris is wider than the rivals, but shorter in length. However, that doesn’t impact the overall cabin space.

There’s a big grille upfront with rectangular stretched back headlights and teardrop fog LED lights. Toyota has used a lot of chrome to highlight the premium sedan design. The Yaris is wider than most of the competitors in the segment, making it a spacious car inside the cabin.

Toyota Yaris is every bit Toyota thanks to its new age design language borrowed from cars like Camry and Corolla. The mid-size sedan looks every bit premium and has a unique design language of its own, unlike any of the previously launched Toyota cars in India.
