This seems to be the first time it has been caught on the local roads

The Toyota Vios 2018, also known as Yaris Ativ in other markets, has previously been unraveled in the Singapore Motor Show. However, this seems to be the first time it has been caught on the local roads. Despite the subtle concealment, the all-new Vios' appearance seems to be pretty similar to its Southeast Asian version Yaris Ativ.

To be more precise, its look reminds us of the refreshed PH-spec Toyota Yaris 2018 that was introduced in December 2017 with a set of upswept head lamps, lower-positioned radiator intake/grille and a big inverted trapezoid.

According to what we have seen in the model displayed at Singapore Motor Show, the Toyota Vios 2018 interior is given with revised dashboard and fresher layout. While the Thai-spec Vios is offered with 1.2L powertrain, the PH-market Toyota Vios version is expected to come equipped with the same 1.3 and 1.5L engines found in the Singaporean model.

So, let’s wait and see!
