The Toyota Yaris sedan will come as a replacement of 1.3 liter Corolla XLi and GLi variants. As per information, the Yaris will come equipped with two engine options– a 1.3 liter engine which is most likely the 4NR-FE unit that churns out 98hp of power and 123Nm of torque, as well as a 1.5 liter 2NR-FE unit that punches out 106hp of power and 140Nm of torque. Both the engines will come paired to either 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox options.

The speculated price for Yaris is around PKR 2.3 million for the base 1.3 liter variant to as high as PKR 2.9 million for the flagship 1.5 liter version. With similar engine capacities, IMC will perfectly pit the Yaris against the Honda City and its Aspire variants; however as per reports the Yaris will be a better equipped vehicle than the 5th gen City which has become 11 years old in our market.

I sincerely pray that these people are going to reduce the price for base variant at-least. We have been waiting for long to replace our Corolla with Yaris.

Do the drivers of local built cars drive per international standards as well? If you think that six airbags can protect you in case of a roll over due to reckless driving then, you are smart enough to know the answer. So please, let us buyers decide per our risk taking capabilities.
