Toyota has also stated that it has received over 60,000 customer enquiries for the Yaris and it will ship over 4,000 units of the Yaris across the countries to the customers by the end of this month. Powering the new Toyota Yaris is a 1.5-litre petrol engine that is being offered with a choice of six-speed manual and a seven-speed CVT gearbox. The engine produces a maximum power output of 107 hp along with a peak torque of 140 Nm.
