The Yaris is also called Belta in other markets like Japan, China and Malaysia.
Toyota could launch the rebadged Maruti Ciaz in August 2021. The car will be called the Toyota Belta and will replace the Yaris, whose production has reportedly been stopped.
According to Toyota, the name Belta is inspired by the Latin word Belle which means beautiful. The Yaris is also called Belta in other markets like Japan, China and Malaysia.
Just like other rebadged models in Toyota’s line-up, the Belta is likely to feature minor cosmetic changes, mostly focused around the front fascia. The interior of the car is expected to be identical to the Ciaz.
Under the bonnet, the Belta will use the same 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder mild-hybrid petrol engine as the Ciaz. This engine produces 103 BHP and 138 Nm and comes paired with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.
