With an average monthly sale of merely 450 units (from Sept 2018-Feb 2019), the Toyota Yaris appears to have run out of steam in the race to become the best-selling C sedan. No surprise then, that, the manufacturer has been offering some great discounts on its C2-segment contender. Models from the previous year's inventory are available with offers worth INR 1.34 lakh, while even the fresh stock is on sale with discounts of INR 65,000.
While the Toyota Yaris is available in four variants, J, G, V and VX, it's only the V-spec model from the previous year's inventory that is available with discounts of up to INR 1.34 lakh. The offers include a cash discount of INR 84,000, an exchange bonus of INR 20,000, and a corporate bonus of INR 30,000. Furthermore, the J CVT variant is available with a cash discount of INR 42,000, an exchange bonus of INR 20,000, and a corporate discount of INR 20,000, all of which takes the total discount to INR 82,000.
On the other hand, the base J trim with manual transmission is available with benefits of up to INR 65,000, which comprise a cash discount of INR 25,000, an exchange bonus of INR 20,000, and a corporate bonus of INR 20,000. Even the fresh stock is available with a discount of INR 65,000.
The Toyota Yaris has been on sale since April 2018. Interestingly, the Yaris is presently the only C2-segmenter that is sold sans a diesel engine option. The petrol-only model is powered by a 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder motor that outputs a maximum power of 109 PS along with a peak torque of 140 Nm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a CVT.
