Review: Honda City vs Toyota Vios, does Toyota Vios have any advantages?

(2019 Toyota Vios prices and specs | Gallery)To begin with, a full disclosure – my daily is a 2014 (third generation pre-facelift) Toyota Vios and some bias may be involved in this review, but not in the way that you think, its actually against the Toyota Vios.Personally, the Toyota Vios has never been appealing because to me, it is merely a means to avoid our national brands. And when my family decided to get one back in 2014, needless to say I wasnt particularly thrilled by the news.2014

Review: 2020 Toyota Vios GR-Sport - The ride and handling champ in class

BMW has M Sport, Mercedes-Benz has AMG Line, Volkswagen has R-Line, and I guess you can see where this is going - Toyota has GR-Sport (GR-S). The first Toyota in the Malaysian market to get that treatment is the 2020 Toyota Vios GR-S.Just to recap, the Toyota Vios GR-S sits at the top of the model lineup. It gets sporty looking bits inside and out, with aggressive looking bumpers and larger wheels. More interestingly, the suspension has been retuned and the CVT features 10 virtual ratios.Also re

Toyota Vios vs Honda City; How do they compare?

The hottest car segment is undeniably the B-segment sedans. You can’t talk about the Honda City without mentioning the Toyota Vios and likewise. But have you ever compared the two cars’ equipment list side by side?For this comparison, we compare the range topping Toyota Vios G variant against the Honda City V variant and City Hybrid as well.Toyota made a huge mark when they debuted the Vios in 2003, but the third generation, unfortunately, let the model down allowing the City to

Honda City vs Toyota Vios vs Volkswagen Vento – which B-segment sedan is for you?

Honda City is Honda’s volume leader in the non-national B-segment market, having sold a total of 31,357 units last year. The popularity is attributed to a well-rounded package and specification that people have come to expect from the H brand.(2017 Honda City Gallery | Specifications | Full Review)Honda CityTrailing behind with 23,986 units is the original B-segment favorite, the Toyota Vios.

Deal breaker: We love the Toyota Vios but this is why we would pick the Toyota Yaris instead

On paper, the Toyota Vios has got it all. 7 airbags, 360-degree Panoramic View Monitor, brilliant driving experience, a supremely quiet cabin (69 dB at 110 km/h based on our tests) and more in a very attractive price starting from RM 77,200 to RM 87,300 for the range topper.But there is one deal breaker that has us halting and reaching for the Toyota Yaris brochure (which, mind you, is very similar to the Vios’) instead, and that is the very annoying blind-spot monitor beep.Yes, both the V

The Toyota Vios hasn’t been around as long as you think!

The Toyota Vios has its ups and downs but there is no denying that it is still a hugely popular car. You can’t walk 10 steps without stumbling over one in a parking lot. The Vios seems like it’s been around for years, 18 years to be exact. Wait what? But it feels longer!It’s true that the Vios started life only in 2002.

2021 Toyota Vios全新改款,会是比City和Almera更好的选择吗?

UWW Toyota在几天前刚刚公布了最新的2021 Toyota Vios改款的预估价格表,这无疑是让早已打得火热的B级轿车市场继续升温。对于大马人民,有太多的B级轿车可供选择了,像Honda City和Nissan Almera这样的竞争对手也在竞相争取买家。不过,这三者,到底谁才是最佳选择呢?我们会对三款人气最高的非国产B级轿车进行一次简单的讲评,并用三者的最高配规格(City则选择的是汽油动力的顶配车型)进行一次对比。配备:City最平价首先,目前Vios的价格表还只是预估值。UMW Toyota将会在12月正式公布价格,Vios也将在12月与改款Yaris一同发售。拥有所有配备和功能的顶配版本标价预计为RM 90,400起跳,我们在下文中会进行详细的分析。这个价格听起来并不便宜,实际上,Vios改款的顶配确实要比改款前的同规格Vios贵了RM 3,100。改款Vios的动力系统没有变化,将继续沿用1.5升的2NR-FE引擎,搭配一具CVT自排变速箱。与此同时,从上方的价格表就可以看出,City是这三者中价格最低的,但它搭载的1.5升4缸i-VTEC引擎却是动力输出最大的,最高
