Toyota Motor Philippines Corporation marks its 30th anniversary with the arrival of the new Toyota Vios. The country’s best-selling passenger car showcases a distinctly bold exterior, optimized interior comfort, signature Dual VVT-i fuel efficiency. The new Vios is a model that exhibits quality at first sight.
More than the sum of its parts, the Vios brings a dash of style and sport to your ride through its fresh overall look. On the outside, a horizontally-oriented blackout grille emphasizes the model’s wider stance, which is accentuated by its LED Daytime Running Lights that comes with a pair of Fog Lamps. The continuous fascia-to-headlight structure now gives the vehicle a more emotional charge, seamlessly blending in with the new character lines which highlight the front, side, and rear skirts of the Prime variants. An improved outer design complements this striking appeal with bigger 16” alloy wheels, rear combination lamps with LED line guides, and halogen projector headlamps. This dynamic silhouette running from bumper to trunk lid tapers smoothly into sleek redesigned spoilers and an aerostabilizing shark fin antenna exclusive to the high-grade variants.
An arsenal of state-of-the-art technology is available for your convenience. Starting with the Push Start and Smart Entry System, the All-New Vios is designed to exceed its class by letting the driver freely choose between Eco and Sport power modes. An Optitron meter gauge blends naturally into the Multi-Information Display at the vehicle’s dashboard. The integrated center panel also combines the automatic air-conditioning controls to the touch-screen display audio, allowing ease of access through Bluetooth, web link, and USB connectivity. Propelled by Toyota’s long-term pursuit of moving people, the All-New Vios also provides ergonomic interiors that promote a relaxing drive through increased shoulder space, improved shape of headrests and rear seats, and noise insulation.
Under the hood, the Dual VVT-i engine which established the Vios as the leader of the subcompact PC segment continues to drive the model forward with its signature fuel efficiency. The Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) and the 5-speed Manual Transmission of the All-New Vios ensures smooth acceleration while maintaining precise control of speed and brakes. For the CVT variants, experience the freedom of choice through sequential shift and paddle shift for a sportier drive depending on the driver’s mood and preference.
The Vios is also the only model in its segment whose variants are all certified by the ASEAN New Car Assessment Programme (NCAP) with a 5-star rating, the highest in its charts. As part of Toyota’s extended efforts in educating the local market on the importance of automotive safety, the model comes equipped with seven (7) SRS airbags strategically located around the car. The All-New Vios also comes with an Anti-Lock Brake System, Vehicle Stability Control, and Hill Start Assist function.
