The car has multiple issues and both the dealer & Toyota Kirloskar are unable to fix them. I am an unhappy Toyota Customer. The only good thing about the car is its inexpensive service.Issue #1-> Dull lethargic drive and slow pickup. Always feels underpowered. Not at all an exciting drive. Switching on the air-conditioning takes significant power away.Issue #2-> High cabin noise and vibrations. The engine gets uncomfortably noisy at RPMs over 4000.Issue #3-> Manufacturing defects and weak ergonomics. Rear wheel arches are missing an inside fender cover (Like that of Maruti Baleno OR that of the Camry). This transmits high road & tyre noise & vibration inside the cabin. Takes a toll on driving comfort.-> Driver armrest & Door armrest is placed in an inappropriate position. Driver armrest placement is an obstruction for the rear passengers. -> Poor plastic quality. -> Poorly positioned steering wheel. The steering wheel feels tad bit bigger to operateIssue #4-> Customer experience and service lapses. (With Espirit Toyota, Noida)-> On the first service visit, the dealership spent an entire day on the first 1000km inspection check. -> On the second service, same experience. Even though I was booked an appointment, I still had to wait the entire day for the service job.-> The dealership also denied E60 service by saying that it is done only for cars like Corolla & Innova. I have the call recording as well for this fraudulent statement.

It is a great city car to drive or to be driven in. Throttle response is smooth and very predictable. The performance is flat throughout the rev range and while it won’t please the enthusiast in you, most drivers won’t find a reason to complain. If you do choose to go flat out, be prepared to wait for quite a while before it clocks 100kmph. It takes a yawn-inducing 13.39 seconds to get there, which is the slowest compared to its peers. For reference, the Verna automatic takes 12.04 seconds to get to 100kmph, and the City is quicker still with a 11.90 second time. Drive it in a relaxed manner and the Yaris will return the favour by keeping your wallet happy. The CVT we had on test delivered a stellar 16.41kmpl inside the city. That’s not a typo, it actually managed to match its highway mileage number. That’s down to the fact that the Yaris is usually in its “Eco” mode at city speeds, with the tacho ticking slightly over idle. Yaris has a ride height of 160 mm.

Yaris is performing well, my vehicle has run 20000+ kilometres. it's giving average mileage of 15 to 16 km per litre. car runs very smooth. in the matter of sudden pick up it is less compared to turbo powered diesel engines. service cost till now was only Rs1500 at 10000 and 20000kms. both were free services,i have to see how much it would be at 30000kms.overall performance is ver satisfactory.
For this, we'd recommend taking a look at the articles by our experts for a better point of view.

I have been driving the yaris for 5 months now, Manual J variant.
It is a fab car. Don't go by naysayers saying not driver centric, it is very fast after 50 kmh whatever the
gear, and if you want speed just drop a gear and the car zips. That is because Toyota has tuned the car for
mileage. You take your foot off the throttle, the car glides and the ecolight comes back on. Ecolight on means
you are driving in a fuel efficient way. So this gives me the best of both worlds. Speed is there, if you want
it. And the build quality is again great, better than Honda any day. I was hit badly by a rickshaw, and there
is just a tiny bump on the door. This is not just love for a new car speaking. Reviewers on YouTube etc.
mostly drive the CVT and ignore the manual. The manual is also pretty effortless to drive. You can engage the
5th with speed as low as 45 kmh and drive around all day in 4th and 5th.

Yaris is very comfortable and smooth to drive. raid clearance is not at all a problem. it gives around 15 to 17 km per litre, depending on road conditions.only we can't get instant pick up like turbo powered diesel engine. that's not a normal requirement according to me. mine is manual gearbox.I have driven CVT also. CVT is very smooth and gives more mileage than manual gearbox.

If you are mainly going to be chauffeur driven alone or have a 4-person family, the Toyota Yaris makes the most sense. Yaris has done a good job of cutting out a niche for itself. It sets itself apart by setting new expectations for safety features in the segment and even offers many segment firsts. However, it isn’t the most driver-centric car and there have been a few misses, in terms of features and in the sense of space. But these aren’t deal breakers, especially since you get a rich in-cabin experience in the tradeoff and there isn't any compromise on usability. Though, we would suggest you take a test drive in order to clear all your doubts.
I too was stuck between the Amaze and Yaris. Since Amaze is 3 lakh cheaper, this cost is really value for money and cannot be argued with. What I liked about the Yaris was that it had 7 airbags compared to 2 in Amaze and I plan to keep the car for at least 12 years, so I felt paying an extra 3 lakhs was worth it. Of course I didn't like the front of the new Amaze and I fell in love with the Yaris on first sight. Also the Yaris felt controlled at high speeds (120+) just like the Vento so that was a plus. City mileage that I get is 13.3 kmpl, driving a Yaris manual 30 km daily in Noida. Also the body build quality is very solid as told in my answer below.

Better passenger safety ,highway mileage of16to17kmper stand adequate ground clearance.
The Honda City has been attracting the car enthusiasts since a very long time in India and its not a hidden fact that Honda has never let its users down with its performance and luxury. But after the proliferation of automobiles in India, Toyota has come up with its well-known Sedan(Yaris) in India which makes Honda city its direct rival. The petrol engine offered on both cars is smooth and silent. Toyota engines have already gained the reputation to run lakhs of Kms without any glitches if maintained timely. Honda has offered way more luxurious features, better car balance and refined engine which is famous for its smooth performance. The Honda city has a silent engine without noise or vibrations felt into the cabin space. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test drive of both the cars so that you may evaluate the cars on the basis of your outlook toward the drive quality, features and comfort.

You need to take a test drive of both cars on the same day in order to do a fair comparison. Also you need to draw a list of parameters for judging the quality of the car. Mine were safety, body build quality, service and maintenance headaches, handling, engine bhp, space and comfort, in this order.
