A very stylish looking Toyota Vios – which has been teasing car-watchers in the past weeks with television commercials and sightings around Metro Manila – finally officially took a bow early as Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) launched it this week.
The official launch followed the ceremonial line-off of the all-new Vios at TMP’s plant in Santa Rosa, Laguna, July 8.
Based on Toyota’s thrust of promoting “Waku Doki” or Fun to drive vehicles, the Vios boasts new and innovative features. Most noticeable is the vehicle’s redesigned exterior which gives it a more sporty and aggressive feel. With new streamlined headlamps, an aggressive grille the Vios’ front fascia is a sure head turner. To match this, its tail lamps have been changed giving it a sharper and more futuristic look for complete model change.
Built with dynamic styling and a more luxurious finish the Vios’ interior invites you to step in and experience the fun in driving. Making best use of its improved dimensions which are bigger than that of the outgoing model, (originally with a dimension of 4,300mm x 1,700mm x 1,460mm, it’s now 4,410 long, 1,700mm wide and 1,475 tall.) the Vios allows for more cabin space making it more comfortable for its passengers. As with the exterior, the redesigned interior shows Toyota’s world renowned manufacturing technology being incorporated into local manufacturing methods, resulting in presence that exceeds its class.
Moreover, the All New Vios comes with the same reliable VVT-i engine, 4-cylinder in-line DOHC 16-valve engine with electric fuel injection (EFI). This vehicle still offers class leading performance coupled with suberp fuel economy. The 1.5G AT has a maximum output of 107hp/6,000rpm and a maximum torque of 142Nm/4,200rpm, while the rest of the variants peak at 85hp and 122Nm. To ensure excellent handling, stability and ride comfort, the All New Vios has been re-engineered for maximum performance.
