2. Toyota Vios 2018 Exterior

Like many other Toyotas, the new Vios also gets special affection from the carmaker that is manifested in a glossy but sporty appearance.

The front end of the Toyota Vios exterior is prominent with a sleek radiator grille linked cleverly with the air intakes while terrifically-styled halogen headlamps are closely connected to the chrome-plated bars, spotlighting the emblem at the front center. Lower is a bumper flanked by black fog lights.

Gazing at the side and you will be dazzled by nice B and C pillars, glace indicator mounted wing mirrors, colored door handles and especially, 15-inch 8-spoke alloys.

Adorning the rear car are civilized taillights with wide chrome plate set on the boot lid, a reflector, and especially, rear combined lamps to enhance safety for driver and passengers in car. Plus, emerging from the roof is a dynamic antenna.

Classified as a compact sedan but its overall dimensions are quite impressive: 4,410 mm x 1,700 mm x 1,475 mm (L x W x J) and a 2,550-mm wheelbase.

3. Toyota Vios 2018 Interior

Let’s discuss the seating capacity first. Owing to a bump in length and height, the current Toyota Vios boosts a more airy cabin space than its predecessors. This room allows the sedan to accommodate five passengers (including the driver). Notably, the rear row can comfortably sit tall people while adjustable driver’s seat gives the driver flexible sitting posture albeit no lumbar support.

Concerning Toyota Vios interior design, the high-qualified plastic-wrapped dashboard is highlighted with an analog speedometer and a large tachometer display, oozing out a sporty vibe, long with center console’s modern design. The 3-spoke steering wheel which is made of polyurethane also contributes to the sport theme with energetic flat bottom and a triple-gauge display that is bedecked with nice dials to leak a somewhat sophisticated and youthful look.

4. Toyota Vios 2018 Philippines Review: Engine & Performance

Propelling the Toyota Vios 1.3 E AT is a 1.3L dual VVTi engine which is paired with a 7-speed CVT and is able to muster 98 horsepower and 123 Nm of torque.

No doubt about the Vios performance on city roads but we’re unsure that on highways. So, if you usually traverse through such kind of road, the City from Honda seems much better.

As to riding comfort, the sedan still provokes shaking while moving on rough terrains, not to mention road noise (even when it’s at low speeds).
