A round-up of this month’s motorsport happenings
The ultra competitive C-segment now gets even more crowded with a fighter from Japan. The Toyota Vios. Erm, not really. That is what it's known as in the South East Asian markets. Unfortunately the original Yaris hasn't been launched in India and we have to make do with the rebadged sedan. The Ciaz has been ruling the roost followed by the City and Verna. However, the Yaris has an ace up its sleeve. In fact, more than one in the form of gesture controlled infotainment system and acoustic and vibration controlling glass which also blocks UV rays by more than 50 per cent. Toyota has not skimmed on safety as well. All variants, including the base J variant get seven airbags and ABS as standard. Want more? Toyota has also added rear disc brakes to the mix making it the safest midsize sedan, by far.
