According to the spied photos, the Toyota Vios 2018 gets an almost similar exterior to the model displayed at international motor shows. Meanwhile, the front fascia receives a fresh look with a more aggressive grille and swept-back headlamps.

Under the hood, the Thai-spec 1.5L model is powered by the same mill which is currently offered on the Philippine market - a dual VVT-i unit. This engine is capable of cranking out 106 hp and 140 Nm of torque, works in a conjunction with a CVT. So it is expected that the all-new Philippine-spec Toyota Vios 2018 will retain this powertrain. Besides, a 1.3L option with a manual gearbox is also predicted to be equipped for the upcoming car.
