Images of the front have not been unveiled yet. However, the new Vios is expected to adapt the “Keen Look” design language set by the Corolla Altis sedan.

In Thailand, the Toyota Vios uses a 1.5-liter Dual VVT-i 2NR-FBE engine with 108hp at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. The engine will be paired with a CVT transmission as standard.

Apart from 1.5-liter engine, India-spec version can be offered with a 1.4-liter four cylinder diesel unit. In this market, the new Toyota Vios will be in the running with the Honda City, Maruti Ciaz, Volkswagen Vento and Skoda Rapid.
