The Toyota Yaris Teaser
On final thoughts, Toyota has fundamentally been a merchant of utility vehicles (Innova, Fortuner) and business vehicles (Etios taxis) in India. That will change with the Yaris, if Toyota costs it well. One would’ve believed that the car fragment in sedan is as of now swarmed with the impressive trio of the Honda City, MarutiCiaz and Hyundai Verna taking up a greater part of sales. Be that as it may, the Yaris with its apparently practical nature and highlights can possibly take sales away from the others. Over and over the car, Toyota’s brand value will be an add-on in this case.
