Toyota has finally launched its mid-size sedan Yaris on Tuesday after a glamour unveiling at Indian Auto Expo earlier this year. The car will only have a petrol variant and not a diesel one.

Interested buyers can book the car by submitting an amount of Rs 50,000. The price of the car, unsurprisingly, puts it in direct competition with the Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Skoda Rapid, Hyundai Verna, Honda City and Volkswagen Vento.

Toyota Yaris sedan wears a sharper design theme that is in line with the new Corolla and Camry. This comes courtesy of sleek headlights and taillights, a wide grille and a pinched roofline.

The cabin looks quite youthful with a large instrumentation featuring analogue clocks and a 4.2-inch MID, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit in the dash with gesture control, a bolstered steering wheel and sleek air-conditioning vents.

Toyota is offering the car with a 1.5-litre petrol engine which churns out 107ps of power 104nm of Torque. The car will also have a 7-step CVT automatic gearbox with every single variant.
