Refreshed Toyota Vios gets Camry-like looks and more equipment.
Toyota has unveiled a heavily updated Vios sedan for the international markets. This is the third update to the current-gen Toyota Vios sedan.
The refreshed Vios gets bits from Toyota’s latest design language, which is prominently seen on the all-new nose, which is similar to the recently-unveiled Camry sedan
. The grille is now divided into two parts with a bolder logo on the top and a hexagonal bottom. It also gets projector headlamps and LED daytime running lights. The Vios’s spacious interior is an upmarket affair and comes with features like climate control, steering-mounted audio controls, and a touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity. Higher-spec variants are likely to get colour-coded trim on the dashboard and door pads.
For India, Toyota has been testing this car in its pre-facelift form for some time. The carmaker is likely to bring the next-gen model to India sometime in the near future. The India-spec car could get retuned versions of the Etios’s 1.5-litre petrol and 1.4-litre diesel engines. The Vios in India will rival the likes of the Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Maruti Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento and the Skoda Rapid.
