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

UMW Toyota will be launching a new model on 17-December. 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 bot

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

RM 15k for a first-gen Toyota Vios - how to buy a good one, maintain and have fun with it

There’s plenty of advice out there that says “Hey, you’ve just started working, it’s best you get a brand new car because theyre reliable and cheaper to maintain!" Don’t get us wrong, its a very valid opinion. 17 years ago, this car was made at the plant in the background!But what if you’re the 10th dentist? Perhaps you want to eschew the monthly commitments and just plonk the cash for an older car thatll still take you around reliably.For that, the 2003-

One of the cars that stole last weeks thunder was the 2020 Toyota Vios GR Sport. Since we first broke news of the car a couple of months ago and all the way up to our Closer Look post, one thing has got one trump card that people have been talking about - its 10-speed gearbox. Brilliantly beautiful, but nearly 15 times the price of a Vios GR-S.Pretty much for good reason too. Name us a few other cars that come with 10-speed gearboxes.
