Cabin and features

Coming to feature list, it is the Yaris that takes it all, with its best in segment 7 airbags as standard fitment across the range. The City and Vento get dual front airbags in the base variant, while the count goes up to 6 on the City ZX. Apart from that, Yaris gets some first in segment features such as a tyre pressure monitoring system, front parking sensors, powered driver’s seat adjust, gesture control for the infotainment system. However, Toyota closes an offering for a sunroof even on the range-topping variant, which is available on the City and also that the City and Vento gets LED headlamps compared to projector headlights on the counterpart. Speaking of space, undoubtedly it’s the City that wins here with its roomy cabin.

Value for money

Toyota has priced the Yaris bit more than the City, where the City ranges between Rs 8.71 lakh to Rs 13.70 lakh for the petrol variant and the former is priced between Rs 8.75 to Rs 14.07 lakh. Whereas, the Volkswagen’s Vento starts from Rs 8.32 lakh and goes up to 11.15 lakh (All Prices Ex showroom, Delhi). Toyota is no doubt a feature rich product, Honda gives a sense of reliability and, nonetheless, both have good after-sales network, but the top-ranging variant of the VW Vento are priced quite well as per the feature packing.
