Now to put things in perspective, the top spec City costs PKR 3,174,000 while top spec Yaris costs you PKR 2,899,000. A difference of PKR 275,000 between the two competitors seems rather extravagant.
The new car also lacks in the safety features compared to Toyota Yaris. While the Yaris comes with Hill hold assist and traction control as standard on all variants, City lacks the said features even in the flagship trim.
