Great news for me. Is it for all the variants or only on higher variants?

I was told it's for all variants. However I didn't prod him further since my company's lease partner (via whom I'm planning the purchase) do not seem to have tie-up with the dealer in question (viva toyota).

My wife has been vacillating between the City, Ciaz, Verna and Yaris for several months now. She eliminated the Ciaz because it was the only one to offer just 2 air bags, the Verna and Yaris for the lack of space they offer in the rear seat and the City for it's poor build quality (several complaints of pre-mature rusting).

Navin, I am assuming you and your wife have personally evaluated the rear seat space. Yaris rear seat space is better than Verna. I and my wife also evaluated the space between Yaris and City and did not find much difference. It also depends who is going to occupy the rear seat most of the time. In our case, it is the kids.

Yes the Yaris is better than the Verna but my wife wanted room for 5. In our case it would be my wife and her friends in the rear as she is usually chauffeured. The middle seat in the Yaris's rear seat is pretty awful.

The City and Ciaz offer more room if you are 5 in the car (3 in the rear seat). Her current car is a 2009 City so she wonders why she has to compromise rear space in 2019.

Is any of the dealer in Delhi still offering a discount on 2018 Yaris if so how much. I went to Galaxy Toyota but they don't have a 2018 model and no discounts on 2019. I am being offered a Aug 2018 car J Cvt from Himachal for a discount of 70000. Is it Ok to get Aug model.

Do check for any telltale signs to make sure the car was not a demo / display vehicle.

Personally, I would not be comfortable purchasing a 5 month old / previous year manufactured car for a discount of only 70K. But that is just a matter of getting comfortable with the idea.

If you are able to rule out any rough use to the car, you should be fine otherwise.

We are yet to test drive the Verna but isn't the middle seat awful in all of these cars? Going by what I could make out from our official reviews, I got the feeling that it might be the case.

Verna is as bad as the Yaris without the threat of being impaled on arm rest should the driver brake suddenly.

Ciaz and City offered more space. Between these 2 the Ciaz was more plush. Sad that Maruti did not include a modern 6 speed AT, 6 air bags, etc.

That said this is the Yaris thread, and if you are never going to exceed 4 passengers, the Yaris is tough to beat. The most mature ride of the 4 cars we sat in.

@Simhi, what's the mileage you are getting on your Yaris? One of my friends here in Bengaluru seems to be getting only 9 in city and 12-13 on highway.

Quoting from my ownership thread https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-...ml#post4501704 (My 2018 Pearl White Toyota Yaris V CVT)

City (Pune)
Average mileage: 9.5 to 10.8 kmpl
Worst mileage: 7.8 kmpl
Best mileage: 11.5 kmpl

Highway
Average mileage: 15.2 to 15.9 kmpl
Best mileage: 16.5 kmpl
Worst mileage: 13.4 kmpl

All drives with AC ON and temperature kept around 24 degrees. These are still readings from MID and I need to collect more readings to provide fuel efficiency based on tank-to-tank method.

Default Toyota Yaris : Official Review

Guys,

Please help me out with Yaris CVT and City CVT latest please..

I've been offered 1 lac on Yaris - but our colleagues have suggested up to 1.25 lac without bargaining! I was hoping to get 1.5 lac off on either of those, but am struggling.
Guiding help please..

This is a Delhi BCR purchase, and the car will be based out of GURGAON.

Both cars are good, but I personally felt the CVT of Yaris to be slightly better than that of City.

Is it a 2018 model that you are talking about? Asking because I'm being offered a discount of 1.5L on 2018 model (VX CVT) though I haven't yet committed to the deal.
