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

Toyota Vios facelift rendered, do you like the Lexus-esque grille?

Malaysians have only been enjoying the delights of the 2019 Toyota Vios for a little over year. But the B-segment sedan was launched globally in 2017 and is due for yet another update come 2021. Indian Autos Blog’s digital illustrator got busy to show us their rendering of the facelift.The rendering of the 2021 Toyota Vios is based on the patent images of the 2021 Toyota Yaris that were leaked in May.

Which is better for you: 2017 Honda Jazz or 2019 Toyota Yaris?

The B-segment hatch market is the most popular market in the Asian region, so it is not a surprise that there are plenty of options for the picking.Out of all the options, the Honda Jazz and the Toyota Yaris reigns supreme, with only the Mazda 2 being close to holding a candle next to these two.Disclaimer: The Perodua Myvi don’t count. The car sits in a class of its own!Between the Honda Jazz and the Toyota Yaris’s offerings, many are hard pressed to determine which car is better sui

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

Honda City: Masih boleh bersaing dengan Toyota Vios baru?

Honda CityPada tahun 2014, Honda City telah dilancarkan di Malaysia. Ditawarkan dengan fungsi Stability Control dan 6 beg udara, Honda City laku keras dan sinonim sebagai kereta pilihan anak muda.Sedikit mengecewakan apabila Honda City menggunakan transmisi CVT berbanding kotak gear 5 kelajuan automatik sebelum ini. Selain itu, penggunaan drum brake pada tayar belakang berbanding disc brake juga merupakan satu lagi kekecawaan pada Honda City.Honda City tidak lari dengan perbandingan dengan

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. It was a car created specifically to be sold in the Asia-Pacific market taking over the small sedan segment baton from what ASEAN regions know as the Toyot

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

Pros and Cons: Toyota Vios - still can fight the 2020 Nissan Almera and Honda City?

October is about to be the hottest month yet - not in terms of weather, but in new car launches. The B-segment will be particularly busy, since well see the all-new Honda City and Nissan Almera coming into play. If priced right, the Proton X50 can eat into the sedans sales too.This leaves the Toyota Vios (alongside the VW Vento) as the only ones without the shiny all-new tag then.
