Interior-wise, a more modern design is carried over. Particularly, we can realize the 3-spoke steering wheel from the Toyota Altis in this new Vios. Standard amenities include Toyota Telematics infotainment system, fabric upholstery, push-button star, keyless entry, tilt and telescopic steering wheel adjustment, an acoustic glass windscreen and a reverse camera. In the meantime, the Toyota Vios G is mollycoddled with leather multi-function steering wheel, 60/40 split folding rear seats integrated with a center armrest with cup holders, single-zone automatic climate control and satellite navigation system.
