One of the best-selling car models around due to its affordability, the Toyota Vios is the ideal vehicle for the daily driver looking for comfort and reliability.
For years, the Vios has provided a compelling combination of quality, value and performance to its users, accumulating loyal customers since its inception.
Its latest model has been revamped with distinctive character lines, compared to its rounder shaped previous models.
Additionally, the current Vios is a little pricier but comes with reasonable grounds as improvements were made on its exterior, interior, driving performance and safety aspects.
Exhibiting Toyota’s ‘Keen Look’ design from the facade, narrow headlights and lower grille accents integrated within the headlights, the car definitely emulates a more striking presence.
Distinctive character lines flowing on both sides of the vehicle frame the lower grill and is inspired by the hulls of a catamaran watercraft.
Like newer vehicles around, the Vios also has daytime running lamps at the top of the lower grille to further emphasise its presence.
From the side, curvaceous character lines are visible, elegantly rising from the front bumper and flows across the length of the vehicle.
The rear silhouette is broad coupled with a tapered beltline for a stylish appearance.
When viewed from the rear, the Vios is outlined with slim lamps offering a sense of width, while the juxtaposition of the thin lamps and a thick rear bumper provides a sporty appearance.
The area between the combination lamps is free of any garnish or trim to showcase an uncluttered, elegant appearance.
Like the former vehicles, the new variant is spacious and can fit up to five individuals.
The overall interior has been revamped and inspired by the same ‘Advanced & Emotional’ concept of the exterior.
Customers will notice a redesigned center cluster which is also accented with metallic ornamentation for a more refined appearance.
Drivers can expect Optitron Meters with LCD Display that has better visibility, designed not only to appear modern and advanced but also to provide high visibility.
Control Acceleration at your fingertips with the Paddle Shifters and have manual control of the CVT for shorter shift times and faster response.
Users will also have an extended view with the installation of adjustable Power Retractable Wing Mirrors.
Jam to your favourite songs with its cabin entertainment system that allows users to play music from their portable audio device via USB, AUX or Bluetooth.
Exemplary ride comfort and sturdy performance
Just like its previous models, the ride is still pleasant on the new variant along with its dependable performance.
It is sturdy and composed at any given situation – even on sharp curves, bumpy roads and steep areas.
This is due to further enhancements and features made to the vehicle which include its 1.5L Dual VVT-I Engine that provides an optimal balance between fuel economy and acceleration performance.
Additionally, its smooth acceleration is achievable due to its 7-Speed CVT that provides seamless gear shift.
Experience low noise and vibration as the car is equipped with a noise-damping acoustic glass and specially designed silencers, carpets and engine mounts that minimise cabin noise and vibration.
Unparalleled safety for everybody
The latest model is equipped with class-leading safety features, promising a more secure journey from your home to any destination.
There are seven SRS airbags around including a driver knee airbag, front side airbags and curtain shield airbags to help ensure that all occupants receive maximum protection.
During sharp turns or cornering, drivers can expect a stable turn as there is also a Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) feature.
This means that when traction is lost during cornering, automatic wheel braking and engine power reduction are applied to stabilise the vehicle.
The Brake Assist is improved to create more braking force to reduce stopping distance.
Users do not have to worry when going through steep slopes with the car’s Hill-start Assist Control (HAC) feature.
The HAC will temporarily apply the brakes to the four wheels in order to prevent the vehicle from rolling downhill when the driver switches from the brake to the accelerator pedal.
Furthermore, users can feel safe even in the evenings with Toyota’s Follow Me Home headlights.
This safety feature is designed for the headlights to stay on for a few seconds longer as you shut off your engine.
The lights will illuminate as you make your way inside your home or destination, giving you an extra sense of security.
Customers are also assured a peace of mind as the Vios and its variants have been rated five stars by the New Car Assessment Programme for Southeast Asian Countries (ASEAN NCAP).
The Vios comes in a variety of colours that are guaranteed to stand out on the road.
These include Super White, Silver Metallic, Gray Metallic, Dark Blue Mica Metallic, Red Mica Metallic, Quartz Brown Metallic and Attitude Black Mica.
Dependable on the road, with a cutting edge and refreshing new look along with various improvements and features, the latest Toyota Vios is definitely more enjoyable and safer to drive.
