Toyota’s all-new Vios

Toyota has debuted its all-new Vios at the ongoing Bangkok International Motor Show, which is a crucial model for the brand in the region.



The debut has caused a huge stir on Malaysian motoring Internet sites with most devoting several entries to the family favourite. You can understand their excitement though as the Vios is far and away the best selling non-national car in Malaysia.

So what can we expect from an all-new Vios? Externally at least, it looks like quite a lot as there have been massive style changes over its predecessor.

Toyota’s designers have taken their styling cues from the current Corolla Altis and Camry so the Vios sports a much tougher ‘face’. Projector headlamps now reside under the plastic light covers though only for the G and S variants. Opt for the cheaper E or J model and you have to make do with reflectors.

All-new 'face' and body design are a big improvement over the current bulbous car

A large front bumper opening with an integrated black styling bar dominates the front end along with neatly integrated fog lamps. There are now two feature lines running along the body sides to form convex and concave surfaces and they both end in a rear end that also sports an all-new look.

Projector headlamps are new but only available for more expensive G and S-spec models

Complex jewel effect rear lamps create a distinctive look at the rear and on higher spec models; there is a large horizontal chrome bar above the number plate housing. Lower bumper reflectors break up the mass of plastic at the back and the rear deck appears to be a bit longer for a more pronounced three-box shape.
