Toyota Yaris is the first car to offer 7speed CVT option under 10 lakhs in the segment backed by Toyota’s legendary sales and service experience along with the benefits of our value added services (Extended Warranty, Finance, Insurance, Q Service, EM 60, Toyota Edge). We are delighted to offer ‘The Happenin’ New Yaris’ that is completely in-line with the feedback we have received and customer expectations; to own a sedan which is ‘value for money’ without compromising on the style, safety and comfort. The new Yaris is built on the Toyota philosophy of QDR offering options of 3 or 7 airbags for customers to choose from based on individual needs and preferences, while retaining their aspirations for more advanced features, safety, space, luxury, style and comfort. The low cost of ownership, low NVH levels, better rear comfort with Toyota’s unique sales and service efficiency makes the ownership experience of the new improved Yaris more desirable.

At Toyota, it has been our constant endeavor to set new benchmarks in customer delight. We truly understand and value the expectations of our consumers, to deliver ever-better cars. We would like to thank our valued customers for their continued trust and confidence in Toyota products and hope that the customers would appreciate the new Yaris for its improved features and varied options.”
