    Default Is Vitz the Pakistani Yaaris Clone

    I was wondering when I saw that the pontiac gto is put in dubai as a lumina ss, then could the pakistani VITZ 2002+ models be called Yaaris in UAE and such Gulf Regions.

    Immediate response needed Please.

    Warm Regards,
    God grant me the serenity to forget the people I never liked anyway... The good fortune to run into the ones I do... And the eyesight to tell the difference!

    actually vitz and yaris is the same thing (only it will differ a bit in specifications in different countries). Vitz/Yaris is called Vitz in the Japanese market. and for other countries its called yaris, as u have found in the UAE.
    and as for the other car u stated, the Holden Monaro is an Australian car, which is exported to the USA as a pontiac GTO and the middle east as a lumina SS. And they will differ a bit in specifications, specially made for that country, but basically its the same thing, only with different names.

    wat i am always wondering is that y does the auto industry put different names of the same cars?? y cant they just put the car make and name as it is, so that car buyers wont get confused??

    Guyz..guyz.......i beg to differ here...

    The japanese named Platz is called Echo in the Mideast and it is a SEDAN....rite?
    The japanese named Vitz (platz hatchback version) previouisly not available in the Mideast....rite?...So basically this is just an ECho hatchback....rite?


    Now...the Yaris sedan introduced in M.east replaces the Echo sedan...... This means that the Yaris hatch replaces the Vitz hatch....true??

    So basically the Vitz has been discontinued and the YAris is the replacement!!!.....

    Point unclear??
    RX-7? An RX-7? Really? I hope you know it's just a sports car with a washing machine under the hood.

    no, gem guy.

    echo sedan and platz are the same thing. in japan they called it platz and in other countries they called it echo.
    both are discontinued.

    echo hatchback is the same thing as vitz. (the name echo hatchback is not being produced now but vitz is continuing.)

    vitz and yaris are the same thing. Vitz is the japanese market name and yaris is the name in other countries.
    evidence that vitz is still being produced: http://toyota.jp/vitz/index.html

    now they have introduced a new car called yaris sedan (obviously, the sedan version of the hatch yaris)
    in japan , yaris sedan is called Belta. evidence for this is : http://toyota.jp/belta/index.html
    yaris sedan has come in place of echo sedan/platz.

    ECHO and Platz is the same thing. Just a different name under different markets. Same is the case with Yaris and Vitz.

    Likewise, Chevy Optra, Suzuki Forenza and Daewoo Nubira are the same thing. Although made by different makers because GM owns a small part of all three companies.

    what a waste....come on ppl

    yaris/vitz/platz...all the same car. yaris and vitz is no different...platz is different as it is a sedan. echo was the badge for the north america and some other countries but is now totally discontinued.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    yes as long as the cars are of the same engine size.

    @asyed01
    you and your friend need to get your eyes examined, they are the same car with different names for different markets.
