Toyota commenced dealer dispatches of the Yaris late last month with customer deliveries commencing this month.

The Yaris is yet to witness a full month on sale, which is why its sales performance can't be judged on the statistics available. Retail sales in the coming months will be a more conclusive reflection of the Indian car buyers' response to the C-segment sedan.

Rivals of the Toyota Yaris include Maruti Ciaz, Honda City, Hyundai Verna, VW Vento, and Skoda Rapid. Among these, the Ciaz emerged as the segment leader clocking sales of 5,116 units in April, followed by the Verna (4,077) and City (3,366). The VW Vento and Skoda Rapid could manage only triple-digit sales at 466 and 810 units respectively.

It is offered with only a 1.5 L petrol engine with manual and automatic transmission choices. The lack of a diesel engine option means it would find it hard to challenge for the top spot on the sales charts.
