Talking about his purchase decision, the owner said he had 1.6L Toyota Altis and the top variant of Honda City as other choices in this budget. “I had driven City for four years, and Yaris has more features than Altis; hence, I bought this car,” he explained.
Furthermore, the owner wanted to buy a new car, so he didn’t buy imported used vehicle.

The Whole Outlook:
The owner agrees that its whole outlook seems incomplete. “Apparently Toyota wanted to save money; hence, they haven’t installed mud flaps in this car,” the owner said, adding that this car is already lifted and without flaps, it looks even higher.
Meanwhile, it looks like that the wheels of the car are pushed inside from the rest of the body.
Parts Availability of Toyota Yaris ATIV X CVT 1.5:
The owner said he went on a road trip right after buying this car, so he does not know much about the availability of the price of this car’s spare parts. “My rim broke during the trip, and I think it costs Rs12-13,000 for the new one,” he said.
Registration and Token Tax:
According to the owner, he registered this car in Islamabad at Rs74,000, while the rate of its annual token is Rs4,000.
Is It a Value-to-Money Car?
As per the owner, if you look at the price range and options in this car, you will find it is undoubtedly a value-to-money car.
Known Fault in Toyota Yaris ATIV X CVT 1.5:
Although the seating space on the front seats is perfect, but the back seats do not have much leg or headspace, especially for tall people. He further said that it is ideal for four people on a long route.
The owner is satisfied with the boot space, saying it is equal to GLi and Altis.
Resale Value of Toyota Yaris ATIV X CVT 1.5:
The car has not much resale value at the moment because the Toyota customer is confused between this car and Altis.
The car does not have cruise control and retractable side mirrors. “The company did tell me that they will install motors in the mirrors at the cost of Rs43,000, but they were not practical,” he said.
The owner said that its riding comfort is very good, and he is satisfied with it. “Its suspension is very soft, and its pick is also excellent as it produces 140nm on 4200RPM,” he said.
If you compare it with Honda City, it is way better in pick and engine power.
According to the owner, if cabin space is not a deal-breaker, then he will give it 4/4.5 numbers out of 5. “But if cabin space is the main concern for you, then you have to rethink before buying it,” he said.
