It’s the New Year so Toyota introduces new refreshments to the Vios. By Jerrica Leong

We told you earlier that Toyota just opened up order books for their new facelifted Vios but now the new 2015 Vios is all set to roll. Toyota is proud to say that the Vios has been upgraded according to customer feedback as well as market trends and they hope that the Vios will be a car which meets customers’ high expectations.

Here are the refreshments that the 2015 Vios is spotting:
  • The Vios 1.5E and 1.5J variants now have the extra convenience of the Smart Entry and Push Start system.
  • The Vios 1.5G now comes with a black interior while leather upholstery still comes as standard.
  • Amber-coloured front foot illumination is now available in the Vios 1.5 TRD Sportivo to complement the sporty image while the Vios 1.5G comes in blue.
  • New for the Vios 1.5G and 1.5E are scuff plates on the door sills. These provide protection for the sills which may accidentally be rubbed by shoes upon entering or exiting the car.
  • The Vios now comes with a new infotainment system. The DVD-AVN system comes with a 7in touchscreen and connectivity with phones along with a reverse camera as well.
Powertrain remains the same in the Vios although Toyota admits to a little tweak here and there that may not be evident to owners. Choose from five exterior colours - White, Silver Metallic, Medium Silver Metallic, Attitude Black, and Quartz Brown Metallic after you’ve picked the variant of your choice along the lines of these prices (OTR):

TOYOTA VIOS 1.5G                             : RM89,990
TOYOTA VIOS 1.5E                             : RM84,300
