Due to make its full appearance in the metal at the Bangkok International Motor Show, Toyota has unveiled full specifications and images of its all-new Toyota Vios 2013.
There are four Toyota Vios 2013 variants that will hit the Thai market; the lower grade E and J variants, and the higher spec G and S versions. The lower grade E and J come with way too little for what we’d expect from a Vios, and even the G and S models fall short on improving its safety features and performance gains.
By Thai prices directly converted to Malaysian currency, the lowest spec 1.5J with Manual transmissions goes on sale for RM59,117 (559,000 Thai baht), and its highest spec 1.5S with Automatic transmission stands at RM77,625 (734,000 Thai baht).
Powering the Toyota Vios 2013 is the familiar 1.5-litre DOHC 16 valve VVT-I engine that offers 109PS, and 141Nm of torque. Missing the mark on our previous guesses, the transmission for the new S and G Grade Vios retains the same Super ECT four-speed automatic we’ve seen on the outgoing model. The lower-spec E and J models will offer five-speed manual options.
Immediately apparent, the new Toyota Vios 2013 has a completely redesigned face; sharper, more aggressive, and a huge improvement from the outgoing model. Its front grille features an upper chrome strip that’s sleek and meshes its way into the front projector headlights (S Grade). The bumper below appears more dynamic than ever before, and welcomes front fog lights on each side for improved visibility. Running down its sides, turn indicators have made their way onto the side-view mirrors, and chrome door handles are also quickly noticeable.
At the back, there’s a completely redesigned rear bumper, boot lid, and tail light arrangement. Unique to the S Grade are a chrome strip on the boot lid, and new 16-inch black alloy wheels. All variants will get the newly designed multi-reflector tail lights.
The interior has an all-new design as well, and returns to putting the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. The instrument cluster features a sporty three-binnacle design with red/amber backlighting, while the centre stack uses blue backlighting, with the air cond vents separating the audio controls at the top and the air cond controls at the bottom. It’s very different from the interior of it’s hatchback-bodied B-segment stablemate, the Toyota Yaris.
