In fact, some car buyers are willing to wait for a specific color to arrive first in their preferred car dealership instead of getting what’s currently available. As such, choosing the car’s exterior color should be done ahead of time considering that it is not something you can replace easily once you wish for another look.

If you are planning to buy a Toyota Vios, deciding on which paint finish can be tricky as the subcompact sedan offered by Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) with a wide array of color options. So with that being said, we have listed down all the color options available for the Vios to help you make up your mind.

Plain and Simple

The Toyota Vios can be finished with a plain and simple look catered by the Super White II and Silver Metallic 1. The Super White II is available on the Vios Base, J, and 1.3 XE CVT, three of the most affordable variants of the model. Meanwhile, the Toyota Vios Silver Metallic 1 is also offered on the said variants but is available on the E and XLE variants.

Considering that the Super White II is available on the more affordable variants, it could take away the feeling of exclusivity as you will encounter numerous Toyota Vios models with this type of finish. 

But if that’s not an issue to you, then Super White II should be a fine choice. A car finished in white paint offers many advantages including a cleaner look as dust, watermarks, and dirt are not as visible as compared to darker body paint colors, and it reflects more sunlight so the cabin gets less hot especially in the summer.

Toyota Vios J Silver Metallic 1 paint option

If white exterior paint is not your thing, there’s always the Silver Metallic 1 for you. This type of finish shies a bit away from a common look white paint jobs offer. Toyota Vios Silver Metallic 1, however, might not good look like the Super White as it robs a classic Black-White combination.

Lower-end variants such as the Toyota Vios Base, J, and XE come with blacked-out side mirrors, exterior door handles, fog lamp housings, steel wheels (Base variant only), and grille. These blacked-out exterior features should complement the Toyota Vios Super White II paint job well, providing a balanced look in the finish.

Can’t decide between the two? Don’t worry as the Japanese automaker is also offering the Toyota Vios with the White Pearl Crystal Shine body paint available on the top-spec G and GR-S variants. This body paint provides a more premium white finish on the said variants as compared to those painted in Super White II.

The only downside of the Toyota Vios G and GR-S White Pearl Crystal Shine is that it is the only body paint option that comes with an extra cost. You must add Php 15,000 to the pricing of the said variants. As such, the flagship Toyota Vios GR-S White Pearl Crystal Shine is priced at Php 1,035,000, Php 1,020,000 if you exclude the premium paint.

Funky Appeal

Now, if you wish for a Toyota Vios that looks youthful, funky, and flashy, you can opt for the Aluminum Jade Metallic or the Grayish Blue Mica Metallic. The Aluminum Jade Metallic is available on the Toyota Vios J, XE, XLE, E, and G variants, while the Grayish Blue Mica Metallic is offered on the Toyota Vios XLE, E, and G variants.

The Aluminum Jade Metallic offers an almost aftermarket paint job as it is not common to be availed of by car buyers. Usually, white and black are the most common body paint car buyers go for so getting the Toyota Vios with the Aluminum Jade Metallic finish can provide you a distinctive and bright appeal on the go.

On the other hand, blue is one of the most common body colors of cars from various brands alongside white, gray, and black. So if you decide to buy a Toyota Vios Grayish with the Blue Mica Metallic body paint, it might not feel as exclusive or unique as compared to the Aluminum Jade Metallic finish of the subcompact sedan.

Toyota Vios E Grayish Blue Mica Metallic paint option

Overall, people would usually assume that a Toyota Vios finished in either Grayish Blue Mica Metallic or Aluminum Jade Metallic is driven by a young individual or someone who likes to look flashy on the road. If you decide to get one of these colors, just make sure to keep the car clean at all times to keep the bright color intact.

The Toyota Vios can showcase a look that comes with a premium, sporty, and aggressive appeal with the Red Mica Metallic. Blackish Red Mica, and Black 1 body colors. The Black 1 is available on all the variants except the lower-end Toyota Vios Base and J, while the Red Mica Metallic can be availed of on the J, XE, XLE, and E variants. Lastly, the Blackish Red Mica is offered on the E and XLE variants.

Toyota Vios GR-S Super Red V paint option

These are the three body color options that are commonly seen on the model aside from the common white finish. Just take note that most variants are designed with material black and piano black exterior details instead of chrome so the Black 1 might be something you need to think thoroughly before considering.

Moreover, the subcompact sedan can also be finished in the premium Super Red V paint which is available on the Toyota Vios G and GR-S. If you are thinking of buying the Toyota Vios 1.5 GR-S variant, we think it is only right to get the Super Red V body color to showcase a sporty appeal, as well as complement the red stitching on the GR-S’ steering wheel, shift lever, seats, and more. Unlike the White Pearl Crystal Shine, the Super Red V body paint doesn’t come with an extra cost. However, it is available on the said higher-end variants only.
