The revised front-end is far more aggressive-looking than the outgoing model, featuring a massive black one-piece grille design that looks like it was lifted off the Toyota Corolla Altis/Camry. It also gets deeper front fog light surrounds than the current Vios.
Despite receiving a new front-end, it appears that at least one variant of the updated Vios will carry on with the pre-facelift model’s alloy wheels.
What about Malaysia?
Considering that production of the current-generation Toyota Vios (and its Yaris sibling) commenced at the Bukit Raja plant back in 2019, it might take a while before the updated model is introduced in Malaysia.
As such, factoring in the lead-time required for local assembly, a late-2021 debut is likely - in time to keep it fresh when the all-new Honda City is introduced.
