Toyota and its local distributor Al-Futtaim Motors have launched the India-bound Toyota Yaris in the UAE, with prices starting at AED 59,900 (INR 10,60,051.04). As the hatchback version is also available there, Toyota calls it Toyota Yaris Sedan to avoid any confusion.

Toyota Yaris Sedan UAE launch
Like in India, the Toyota Yaris in the UAE is powered by a 1.5L Dual VVT-i petrol engine.

Like the forthcoming India-spec model, the Toyota Yaris in the UAE is powered by a 1.5L Dual VVT-i petrol engine. This four-cylinder mill produces 105 hp at 6,000 rpm and 14.3 kg.m (140 Nm) of torque at 4,200 rpm. The Indian-spec version’s engine could have very similar engine output figures, if not the same. While CVT is standard in the UAE, buyers in India will have the option to go for a cheaper, 6-speed manual transmission. The UAE-spec version has a fuel economy rating of 20 km/l.

Toyota has officially confirmed that it will offer the Toyota Yaris in India with a petrol engine only. Even later during the lifecycle, the company is unlikely to introduce a diesel engine option. On the outside, the Indian-spec version features automatic, projector headlamps with LED light guide, LED DRLs, electrically adjustable and retractable ORVMs, 15-inch alloy wheels, tail lamps with LED light guide and Shark-fin antenna.

Inside, 8-way power driver’s seat, roof-mounted air vents with ambient illumination and flat floor are all first-in-segment features. Other highlights include 4.2-inch MID, cruise control, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and gesture control, paddle shifters, dual rear power outlets, rear-seat armrest with two cupholders and leather upholstery. 7 airbags, tyre pressure monitoring system, front and rear parking sensors, VSC, TRC, HAC and reverse camera are the main safety and driver assistance features.
