Toyota is looking to get toe-hold in the mid-size sedan segment with new Yaris. We compare it to established rivals to find how good it is.


Toyota Yaris vs Rivals

Toyota Yaris has recently made its entry into the Indian market and the car is up against the likes of Honda City, Hyundai Verna, and Maruti Ciaz. We at ECARLR are getting a lot of enquiries about the new Toyota and how it stacks up against its established rivals. So here is the specification comparison review that will clear most of your doubts and help you to make an informed decision.

Dimensions and Space

In terms of length, Toyota Yaris is the shortest one while Maruti Ciaz is the longest but more importantly, Toyota loses out on the crucial aspect of wheelbase where its 2560 mm is 90 mm shorter than the Maruti Ciaz while 40 mm shorter than the Honda City and Hyundai Verna. All the three competing cars here have the option of 16-inch alloy wheels but sadly Toyota comes only with 15-inch wheels as standard.

Engines and Transmissions

As the Toyota Yaris features only 1.5-liter petrol engine, it is only fair that we compare it to the petrol versions of completing proposition here. The Hyundai Verna is the most powerful in the lot with 123hp of maximum power while Honda City with 119hp comes second.  Toyota takes the third spot with 107hp while Maruti ciaz has the lowest grunt, i.e. 92hp on offer. The difference in the torque is not too much; still, Hyundai leads the chart with 151Nm figure.

Price and value for money

Like its stablemates, Maruti Ciaz offers maximum bang for your buck with price ranging between Rs 7.80-10.60 lakh. Even the Honda City undercuts the starting price of Toyota Yaris (Rs8.75-14.07 lakh) albeit by slender Rs 4000 though Hyundai Verna starts at a considerably higher cost of Rs 9.80 lakh. Interestingly the prices of Hyundai Verna peak at respectable Rs 12.60 lakh while the top-end of the Toyota Yaris retails at Rs 14.10 lakh while Honda City goes to the Rs 13.70 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). On the crucial aspect of value for money, it’s hard to beat the Maruti which also partly explains why Ciaz is getting tremendous response from all quarters despite being average performance and regular-quality interiors.
