The news that Toyota is discontinuing its Corolla Xli and GLi variants has been going on for quite a while now. As a replacement, as the rumors go, Toyota might introduce a smaller car that has a 1300 engine, the same one that is present in GLi and Xli Toyota models.
As the reports are heard the new car will be Toyota Vios. Now another news has popped up in India that Toyota Motors is introducing Toyota Yaris 2018 at the Auto Expo in India. Toyota Yaris and Vios have quite similarities and remind one of Honda’s two biggest cars, Civic and City.
Vios will be more luxurious, the stylish car in comparison to Yaris but in essence, both the car are quite similar. In Pakistan, we are expecting that Toyota will launch a small 1300 engine car. As for Toyota Yaris sedan, it will have 1500cc motor that will produce 110 BHP having an option of 7-step CVT or a five-speed manual
Toyota Yaris is available in many Asian markets but it is expected that in India the model will resemble Singapore-spec car. Coming to the specifications of the car its length is 4,425mm and wheelbase is 2,550mm. The design of the car is quite traditional but a modern touch is given to it specifically at the front.
In Pakistan, there is quite a competition between Toyota cars and Honda cars. Other than Toyota, and Honda, Suzuki is the only third known automaker in Pakistan. Now new car companies are entering Pakistan market, thus we can hope for progress and diversity in the auto sector of the country.
In India, Toyota wants to introduce Toyota Yaris to compete with the much-loved car, Honda City. Most probably Toyota Yaris will be on sale in India by late 2018. As for Vios, it is expected to launch in Pakistan by 2019.
