Toyota Veloz Variants: Interior
Just like the exterior, both the Veloz G and Veloz V pretty much look the same when it comes to their interiors.
The Veloz V has a larger head unit, hence the thinner bezels on the screen
Both can accommodate up to seven occupants, with 60:40 folding second rows, 50:50 tumble down third rows, and the Long Sofa Mode which folds all the seats down. The seats on both variants are also clad in a combination of fabric and leather.
For the driver, both the G and V trims offer a leather-wrapped steering wheel with tilt and telescopic adjustment, and a seven-inch digital gauge cluster.

For entertainment, the Veloz V gets a nine-inch touchscreen, whereas the Veloz G gets an eight-inch touchscreen. Despite the size difference, both offer Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and USB connectivity. These are then patched to a set of six speakers.
Moving on to safety, only the top-spec Veloz V gets the Toyota Safety Sense driver-assist suite. This means that it comes standard with a pre-collision system, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure alert.

For standard safety equipment though, both variants of the Veloz are equipped with anti-lock braking with electronic brake-force distribution, stability control, ISOFIX child seat anchors, an engine immobilizer, and a car alarm, as well as a reverse parking sensor.
Lastly, both the Veloz G and Veloz V come from the factory with six airbags. Specifically, these comprise dual-front, side, and curtain airbags.
Toyota Veloz Variants: Engine
Under the hood, both the Veloz G and Veloz V use a 1.5-liter inline-4 gasoline engine. At most, it can make 105 horsepower and 138 Nm of torque. Both Veloz trims then use a continuously variable transmission with a sequential manual mode.

Toyota Veloz Variants: Conclusion
In conclusion, the main difference between the Veloz G and Veloz V is their safety kit. If you want a more comprehensive and more thorough set of safety features, you should go for the top-spec model. If that isn’t your priority, then go for the Veloz G.
As a whole though, the Veloz offers a lot of those who want a family-friendly ride that doesn’t compromise on looks. Then again, do give each variant a good ol’ test drive before settling on a final choice.
