More Details About Toyota Yaris and Toyota Vios Leaked

The automotive industry of Pakistan is going to be very exciting in the next few years. All the automaker are worried about low sales and their future in Pakistan, and honestly they should be. They have given nothing but stubborn attitude and cold shoulder in the name of of customer service along with pathetic quality vehicles to the customers, who are now left with no other option than to switch to the imported used cars. Even Pak Suzuki is now planning to replace its 20-year-old-brand-new Cultus with a modern car in order to retain its customer base.

Toyota Indus is also considering 2 new vehicles for Pakistan as reported by us earlier, which started quite a stir in the automotive community of the country. After reading that article, an insider of the automotive industry sent me an email with a few new photos of both the Yaris and the Vios as a symbolic gesture to validate my news along with some information to update/correct my story.

He told me that Toyota Indus is certainly planning the Toyota Yaris and the Toyota Vios for Pakistan, however not in 2016-17. In 2016, Toyota Indus will produce a Minor Model Change (MMC) of the current Toyota Corolla, and in 2018, the Yaris and the Vios will hit the market. He also confirmed that after the introduction of Vios, Corolla XLi will be discontinued and GLi would be the base model of Toyota Corolla with a 1.5 liter engine.

We are certain that the Yaris and Vios are more than just a rumor as two independent sources have confirmed the same news. But when? Only time will tell.

    Good news I guess, its just that 2018 is too far to wait for Yaris. Is this the Thai model? the Japanese vitz doesnt come in this shape or does it?

    I strongly support Govt. plan for importing cars as it is increasing the jobs and to the customers more options with less price. Here i would like to make comparison with Mobile, think about the time when only mobilink Jazz was there, it was looting the customers then Ufone, telenor & Warid came the cost per cll dropped dramatically. And now mobile sector is a huge chunk of business market.

    “In 2016, Toyota Indus will produce a Minor Model Change (MMC) of the current Toyota Corolla”

    and that Minior Model Change(MMC) could be same as they done before in 2011, with corolla’s rear bumper reflectors, they changed its shape from round reflectors to rectangular reflectors.. and yes that was a CHANGE. 🙂

    How it is creating jobs?

    I drove the new Yaris model and I would say it is worst than before. While driving, the cockpit seems to be in an awkward position and does not give you comfort as compare to previous model. With limited choices, people in Pakistan has to accept it at whatever cost

    This sounds like some great plans for Toyota, keep up the good work!

  • Umer Farooq

    This mean in 1017 no Yaris 🙁

    Local market desperately needed a reasonable budget car like Yaris
