Not Yaris, Vios is coming to Pakistan!



The rumor mill has again started churning out false news regarding the launch of Toyota Yaris by IMC in Pakistan.

For the past couple of days, social media is abuzz with the possible introduction of Yaris in Pakistan. PakWheels, however, believes that Vios and not Yaris will be introduced in Pakistan.

One of the reasons why this rumor is doing the rounds lately could be that Vios is also named Yaris in some countries. It is worth reminding our readers that Yaris, which is a whole different car as compared to Vios, shares the same platform as Vios, since both are manufactured by Toyota.


In Pakistan, Toyota Vios is expected to be launched with a 1.3 Liter DOHC 16 Valve with Dual VVT-i engine mated to either a manual or auto transmission that produces around 100 hp and 123 Nm of torque. The car is already sold in different countries such as China, India and Thailand. Last year, while talking to, a Toyota vendor revealed that the company has given them target to make Vios parts and it would be launched next year in the local auto industry.

It is rumored that the company will replace its iconic XLi and GLi models in favor of Vios; however, nothing can be said with utmost surety at his moment.

Furthermore, aside from Vios, Toyota IMC, last year, also imported Daihatsu Perodua Bezza. It was a test-drive model, which the company imported for research purposes and to test its performance on the roads of Pakistan.
