After seeing teasers and speculative reports on the 2021 Toyota Yaris facelift, we will finally be able to look at the model. Since it made its world premiere in the Philippines recently. Yaris sedan is sold as Vio in many South-East Asian countries. But it is almost the same vehicle as in India.
The visual updates
The refreshing version of the C-section sedan contains a few visual updates limited to the front end of the car. Toyota Kirloskar Motor has yet to reveal plans for bringing the updated sedan to India. Although it is certain, that the new model can be sold elsewhere, such as Malaysia, Taiwan, and Singapore.
In relation to the visual updates, Toyota Yaris provides a new set of headlamps. It contains full LED headlamps. Apart from that, the refreshed sedan receives even a new, larger secondary air dam. In addition, the new fog lights enhance the look of the front end further. The sedan has no change in its side profile or rear end and does not even receive a minor update.
If you think the chances on the outside are minimal, the only little change on the inside that comes. The touchscreen infotainment unit is not registered with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The new version comes with a long list of features. Including roof-mounted airconditioning winding, electric sunroof, and steering audio control. In addition, electric windows and automatic air condition controls, along with a previous model’s updated version. Seven airbags, EBD, ESP ABS, keyless entry with the start button, and vehicle stability control. In addition, the safety package includes central locking and control of the cruise.
With two motor options, 1.3-litre natural petrol and 1.5-liter natural aspired petrol, the Toyota Yaris for the Philippines was available. The former has a maximum power rating of 100 hp and a maximum torque of 123 Nm and 108 hp and 140 Nm. Out of the two, the smaller one is connected to a 5-speed manual drive. While the larger one has a five-speed manual drive and a seven-speed dual-load drive.
As we said, Toyota Kirloskar Motor still has plans to take this car to our coasts. Nevertheless, TKM can envisage bringing the new Yaris here in order to improve its sales performance. Given that the Hyundai Verna facelift and the all-New Honda City have just been launched. But the company’s focus is now on preparing for its local debut the Fortuner facelift.
