Toyota Yaris to get CNG variant

Thanks to BHPian Turbanator for sharing this information with other enthusiasts.

The Toyota Yaris is likely to get a CNG variant. It is believed that the CNG kit could be installed at the factory and it will come with Toyota warranty. The CNG tank is expected to be placed in the boot. The installation is expected to be done with the help of Maruti.

Last week, we had reported that Toyota is planning to launch a lower-spec Yaris for fleet operators, which could get the CNG option.

At present, the Yaris is powered by a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that puts out 106 BHP @ 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque @ 4,200 rpm. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed CVT with paddle shift. The car does not come with a diesel engine.
