Earlier this week Toyota launched the dual-tone version of the Yaris in V (O) manual and V (O) CVT trims in India along with the entry-level J (O) trim in both petrol manual and CVT options. This time around, Toyota has silently introduced the mid-spec G (O) trim in the country in petrol manual at Rs 9.63 lakhs and CVT at Rs 10.83 lakhs options.
The newly introduced G (O) trim gets projector headlamps, chrome grille, 15-inch silver alloy wheels, shark-fin antenna and ORVM-mounted turn indicators. As for the interior, it gets dual-tone upholstery and fully-automatic climate control. Additionally, the vehicle also gets a 4.2-inch TFT colour display for the instrument cluster and cooled glovebox. The additional feature list includes height-adjustable driver seat, roof-mounted air vent with ambient light, multi-function steering wheel, keyless entry, push-button start and electric ORVMs.
Mechanically, it continues to be powered by the existing 1.5-litre petrol engine that produces 108bhp of power and 140Nm of peak torque. The trim can be had with either six-speed manual or an optional seven-step CVT-i automatic gearbox. The optional trim gets three airbags - dual front and a driver knee, instead of standard seven airbags as standard in regular trims. The optional trim, however, gets ABS with EBD and brake assist, rear parking sensors, front and rear fog lamps, rear defogger, high-speed alert, driver and passenger seat belt reminder, central locking, speed sensing auto door locks and impact sensing door unlock function.
