Toyota Yaris to be Launched in Pakistan by 2020: Report

The Japanese automaker Toyota has finally started work on a replacement for Corolla XLI and GLI. Reports suggest that the Indus Motor Company (IMC) will launch 1,300cc Toyota Yaris by the end of this year or early 2020.

According to the vendors, they have already been asked to manufacture parts for Toyota Yaris and that the production has already started. Reports suggest that Toyota has given up on its plans of launching Toyota Vios, however, Yaris is likely to hit the roads in 6-8 months time.

The vendors, while talking to a private news channel, said that they plan on providing the parts to IMC by November or December this year so that the car can hit the markets in January or February next year.

Another vendor, on condition of anonymity, disclosed that the ‘vendors have already started parts development of Yaris’ despite the downward trend of the auto market.

  • Toyota Yaris is not a replacement of Corolla. It is already in production and currently available in many countries around the world. Yaris replaced Toyota Echo.

    • True but in pakistani market indus motor is aiming to discontinue 1.3 corolla variant and replace them with yasir.

    • Worldwide variant is known as Vitz, vitz is hatchback and Yaris is not, hatchback yaris aka vitz has been available worldwide for many years,

      • Vitz name is used only in japan only. Rest of world use yaris name these car. Yaris comes in sedan and Hatchback types.

    • it is a replacement for 1.3 variant corolla here and a direct competition to honda city.
      Honda had it better than Toyota as they had variants for both group, toyota just used single car and made it for everyone with engine sizes.

    • our pm also said that he will commit suicide rather than bowing down to imf! so stop taking Amran Kaan’s words seriously. He’s a M O R O N of highest order.

  • Yaris (in hatchback and sedan), Belta (sedan) and Vitz are names of same vehicle in different countries.
    Engine and transmission remain same. Other options are changed country to country. This local Yaris would not be equal to its Japanese cousin, Vitz in options.
