Toyota India has officially announced that the Yaris sedan would be discontinued in the country from September 27, 2021. The Japanese automaker also stated that it would introduce new models in the coming new year in the Indian market. Toyota Yaris was first launched three years back in 2018 in India while a year later it received dual-tone color variants, followed by a BS6 engine update in January 2020. Toyota will replace the Yaris with the Belta sedan which is basically a rebadged version of Maruti Ciaz.

"This move is a part of Toyota’s product strategy to continue to cater to the ever-evolving needs of the customer through enhanced technologies and product offerings. In every sense, the Yaris is truly a top-class, versatile sedan. Ever since its India debut, the Yaris built on Toyota’s QDR philosophy, won the hearts of the customers with its stunning style & design, leading features, low maintenance cost and unmatchable drivability, thus creating a unique ownership experience. We thank all our customers for their support and placing their trust in the brand," said Toyota India in an official statement. Toyota Yaris was available with a 1.5L petrol engine which developed top power of 106 bhp and peak torque of 140 Nm.

"Further, Toyota will continue to seamlessly cater to all Yaris customers’ needs through our dealer service outlets across the country, along with the promise of availability of Toyota genuine spare parts for minimum next 10 years on this discontinued model," added Toyota in the official statement. Toyota Belta production has started and a few spy images confirmed the same. It is expected to be powered by the same 1.5L 4-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine as the Ciaz sedan. The power output and torque performance will stand at 103 bhp and 138 Nm. The engine will be paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox as standard while a 4-speed torque converter automatic transmission will also be offered as option.
