Toyota Yaris will come with LED Line Guide in headlamps and tail lamps. It'll have Piano Black interiors and Waterfall design instrumental panel. IN terms of comfort features, Toyota Yaris will come with Vibration Control Glass for windshield and doors for a quieter cabin, power driver seat, roof mounted air vents with ambient illumination for rear passengers, 60:40 split rear seats, smart entry with push start, gesture-controlled infotainment system with touchscreen navigation and paddle shift for CVT + cruise control.
Toyota Yaris will be offered in a 1.5L Dual VVT-i petrol engine with a seven-speed CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) or six-speed MT (Manual Transmission) options.
