Will Toyota Yaris Take on Honda City?

I don’t think Toyota Yaris can have an impact on Honda City. It cannot beat the Honda City. And it also depends on the buyer which car he wants to choose as per the budget and specifications.

No Honda city is having its own prestige in the market so I don’t think that Toyota Yaris is going to give any big impact on Honda city’s sale.

Since the first glimpse at the 2018 Auto Expo this year, Toyota Yaris the much awaited mid-size sedan has been turning heads. The sedan is expected to launch on May 18, 2018, in India. One can estimate the buzz this sedan has created that Toyota dealerships across India will start taking bookings of this sedan from April 22 and prior to the official booking date, few dealerships have already started receiving bookings at a payment of Rs. 50,000 in advance.

According to experts, Toyota Yaris will not be giving only tough competition to Honda City, but also other sedans in its segment. The car has a long list of features and it includes electrically adjustable driver’s seat, gesture sensing touchscreen infotainment system, ambient lighting, roof-mounted AC vents, tyre pressure monitoring system and 7 airbags. Toyota will be the first manufacturer to offer all the features for the first time in the segment. Therefore, Yaris got an edge over other sedans like Honda City.

The Yaris has 7 airbags include dual front, side airbags, curtain airbags and driver’s knee airbag and will be powered by a petrol engine only. It will have a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder, naturally aspirated engine that produces a maximum power of 108 PS and 140 Nm. The car will get a 6-speed manual transmission and a CVT automatic gearbox.

The CVT automatic will be available as an option with all the variants of the vehicle, which is another first. It will be a 7 stepped transmission and gets paddle shifters. The Yaris is expected to be priced around Rs. 8 lakh, at this price with a wide range of features, the Yaris may take on Honda City.
