Toyota is all set to launch the Yaris sedan next month on 18th May and the details about the variants and features had been leaked on the internet recently. However, the automaker has now officially revealed the detailed specifications including dimensions, engine output and claimed fuel efficiency of the sedan ahead of its launch. The authorized dealerships of the company have already started taking advanced bookings of the upcoming Yaris at a token amount ranging from Rs 50,000 to Rs 1 lakh.
Talking about the engine specifications, the 2018 Yaris will come with only one petrol engine in India. The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine will be offered to produce 105 Bhp of maximum power and 140 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed CVT and the AMT will also be available on the Yaris from the base J variant onwards. However, the steering-mounted paddle shifters will be available on the top VX variant only. The engine will return a fuel efficiency of 17.1 kmpl for the manual and 17.8 kmpl for the CVT variants.
Moving ahead, in terms of dimension the upcoming Toyota Yaris will measure 4,425mm in length, 1730 mm in width, 1495 mm in height with 2550 mm wheelbase and the boot capacity of 476 litres.
