The Toyota Yaris now features an infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support in Brazil, where it is available in hatchback and sedan versions. There's no word on the introduction of these connectivity features in the Indian-spec model.
Toyota has been very slow with the adoption of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Apple CarPlay was introduced back in 2014, in the Ferrari FF, while Android Auto had debuted in 2015, in the seventh-gen Hyundai Sonata. Toyota started offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in its models in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
The Toyota Yaris might not have garnered huge numbers in India, but it's a pretty famous car in Brazil, as per the sales data. It has found over 90,000 owners there since its launch in June 2018. The prices start at R$ 66,490.00 (INR 11,59,910.63)* for the hatchback version and at R$ 68,490.00 (INR 11,94,800.41)* for the sedan version.
Along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for the Toyota Play+ infotainment system, the Toyota Yaris has gained dual-tone paint options (black and red and black and grey) and diamond-cut wheels in darker shades in Brazil. In addition to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the Toyota Yaris sold in India misses out on even an electric sunroof, which is offered in Brazil.
Toyota sells the Yaris sedan in Brazil with the 2NR-FE 1.5L flex-fuel engine that is tuned to deliver 105 PS and 14.3 kg.m (140.24 Nm) of torque running on petrol and 110 PS and 14.9 kg.m (146.12 Nm) of torque running on ethanol. Customers can specify this engine with a 6-speed MT or a CVT.
