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

Launched in 2019, should you buy a Toyota Vios over a 2020 Honda City or Nissan Almera?

2020 has been quite the rollercoaster, hasn’t it?

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

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.

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.

The 1.5-litre naturally aspirated heart of the 2019 Toyota Yaris is a familiar unit. The 2NR-FE engine is one that powers the Toyota Vios and has been in use since UMW Toyota gave the sedan an update in 2016. Back then, UMW claims that the new engine was an effort for better fuel efficiency, and the Yaris definitely proves itself to be a fuel sipping car. Mated to a CVT with seven sequential gears, the Yaris’ engine produces 107 PS and 140 Nm, 13 PS less than Honda Jazz.
