With the falling demand, Toyota has started offering benefits on its C-segment sedan, the Yaris. Customers stand a chance to save a grand total of around Rs 1 lakh depending on the schemes availed. Benefits include exchange offers and accessories under the brand’s ‘Gold Rush’ scheme. Here’s what you get:

  • While the Yaris already gets a 3 year/1 lakh kilometer warranty as standard, Toyota is offering an additional 1 year warranty free of cost under the offer


  • Free periodic maintenance for four years

  • Exchange benefits of upto Rs 20,000

  • Additional benefits for corporate, government employees and pensioners

  • Other festive benefits of upto Rs 60,000 including gold coins

Note: These offers are valid till November 20, 2018.

The Toyota Yaris brought with it several segment-firsts including seven airbags, automatic option right from the base variant and roof mounted air vents. But all of this also resulted in a steep price tag too which didn’t go down well with a majority of buyers. The lack of a diesel powertrain further led to a downfall in its popularity.


Increasing number of buyers are picking up other options in the segment, the most popular being the Maruti Ciaz facelift (3892), Honda City (3612) and the Hyundai Verna (3301) in the previous month. In fact, it's only the Nissan Sunny that sits below the Yaris registering a sale of 25 units. Even the Volkswagen Vento(480) recorded higher sales figures than the Toyota Yaris, while its Czech sibling, the Skoda Rapid surpassed the 1200 mark.
