Malaysia to launch new Toyota model soon – 2021 Toyota GR Yaris or Toyota Vios GR Sport maybe?

Typical of such pre-launch teasers, details are intentionally held back but the tone and manner of the communication suggests something youthful, emotional and sporty. So we can safely rule out cars like the Toyota Fortuner and Toyota Innova, both of which are also due for an update, following a similar refresh for the shared IMV-platform Toyota Hilux. Could it be the new updated Toyota Vios and Toyota Yaris then? Bookings are opened for both models, both are yet to be launched. The Vios-Yaris t

Spied: Is this the new 2021 Toyota Vios facelift?

Remember the new 2020 Toyota Vios facelift rendering from a month ago? Well, it turns out that the rendering is quite accurate as the actual car has leaked on CarGuide.ph. Seen here are three variants of the updated Toyota Vios, which have been leaked ahead of its 25-July debut in the Philippines. 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

New Toyota Vios – This Or The Honda City?

UMW Toyota Motor introduced the new Vios earlier this year, refreshing its popular B-segment sedan with a completely new look and a generous dose of equipment. But does the updated Toyota Vios range have what it takes to lure buyers away from the popular Honda City? Specifications for Toyota Vios Engine: 1.5-litre, naturally aspirated, port injection, Dual VVT-i Power: 107 PS @ 6,000 rpm Torque: 140 Nm @ 4,200 rpm Transmission: CVT-type automatic, front-wheel drive Safety: 7 airbags, ESC, TRC, B

New 2020 Toyota Vios to add Gazoo Racing variant, launching in December

If you’ve been following our posts, you would’ve known by now that UMW Toyota Motor is expected to launch a new 2020 Toyota Vios facelift in December. You wouldn’t expect the company to sit idly while watching the all-new 2020 Honda City and 2020 Nissan Almera muscle into its territory right? As a follow up to that, we have received news that Toyota will also be adding a Gazoo Racing variant of the new Vios, possibly wearing the GR Sport badge. It’s a logical move because a Toyota Vios GR Sport

Malaysia akan lancar model Toyota baru nanti – Toyota GR Yaris 2021 atau Toyota Vios GR Sport, mungkin?

UMW Toyota akan melancarkan satu model baru pada 17 Disember. Sudah menjadi kebiasaan promo acah pada fasa awalnya, maklumat terperinci belum didedahkan. Tapi, cara dan intonasi iklannya berbunyi agak ‘hip’, ditujukan kepada orang muda dengan gaya. Oleh itu, kita dah boleh jangkakan yang ia barangkali bukannya Toyota Fortuner mahupun Toyota Innova, walaupun kedua-dua model ini sudah patut menerima kemaskini, meniru penambahbaikan yang baru seperti Toyota Hilux yang berkongsi platform IMV.

All-new 2020 Honda City taunts the Toyota Vios with LED headlights

A week after Honda Malaysia teased the all-new 2020 Honda City, they've done it again with today's post - this time confirming the availability of LED headlights. And they've paired the post with a particularly spicy caption too: Time to expose the pretenders. #nomatch #allnewcity #thetakeoverstartsnow A very bold claim to egg on the Toyota Vios. Speaking of which, last week Toyota Malaysia answered with a smart rebuttal claiming that the Vios is timeless. This time? It'd be interesting to see w

Toyota announces new TNGA platform for next generation Vios and Yaris

Toyota’s small cars family will be next in line to benefit from Toyota’s much vaunted TNGA platform. Short for Toyota New Global Architecture, the all-new TNGA platform has been the key reason why recent Toyota models like C-HR, Camry, and Corolla have been grabbing the title of best-in-class handling away from Mazda. Currently, there are three variations of Toyota’s TNGA platform (actually there are four if you include the Lexus LS’ GA-L). GA-C was the first of the TNGA platform series introduc

Yet another strong competitor has jumped into the mix of Thailand’s B-segment sedan market! Toyota Motor Thailand has launched the new 2020 Toyota Yaris Ativ 1.2L facelift.

Review: Toyota Vios - This over the Honda City?

(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, it's 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 wasn't particularly thrilled by the news. But p

New vs Old: Can the 2020 Toyota Vios still hold off the City and Almera?

Shortly after prices for the 2021 Toyota Vios facelift were announced, we heard you ask: 'What's new? What's still the same?" These questions are what we'll be answering in this article. Exterior - Hey there, good lookin' Like its recently-facelifted 2021 Toyota Yaris stablemate, the redesign makes the Vios look more mature.

Is the new 2021 Toyota Vios facelift a better car than the City and Almera?

The B-segment sedan race is heating up for sure with UMW Toyota just only announcing (estimated) prices for the latest 2021 Toyota Vios facelift. Malaysians are pretty much spoilt for choice in getting a brand-new B-segment sedan with rivals like the Honda City and the Nissan Almera also vying to get buyers. However, which of the three would be the right choice? We’ll take a quick look and compare the highest specs (highest petrol-powered variant in the case of the City) of the 3 popular non-nat

Nissan Almera finally outsells Toyota Vios in Thailand in February 2021!

The all-new Nissan Almera is an underrated gem for sure but in terms of sales, it is unmatched compared to the Honda City and the Toyota Vios even in Malaysia. In February however, Miss Mera did the unthinkable in Thailand when it overtook the Vios as the second best-selling B-segment sedan. According to the latest sales data, the Toyota Vios (which is sold as the Yaris Ativ in Thailand) was the second best-selling B-segment sedan in the Kingdom in January, behind the Honda City.

Complementing its racy intentions are new side-skirts and special wheels. A new bootlid spoiler and aggressive rear bumper with a diffuser complete the look. Checks with our sources reveal that the Vios GR Sport will wear a bespoke bodykit, unlike the Aerokit Pack
