In truth, the Vios is a C-segment sedan which is set to take on players like the Hyundai Verna, Honda City and the Maruti Ciaz (Suzuki Ciaz). However, the new Vios, unlike its rivals, will not come with diesel engines. Concerning the reason, it’s simply because Toyota has sold the Vios as a petrol-only vehicle globally. Besides, adding a diesel engine to this sedan will result in numerous changes in the hardware. High cost is also an additional reason.
