It looks a lot like the 2018 Yaris Ativ.

Recently, the all-new Toyota Vios 2018 has been officially premiered in Singapore. This new sedan is closely akin to the 2018 Toyota Yaris Ativ in Thailand, but for a more potent engine. The Singapore-spec Vios is offered in two variants: E and G.

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.

On the topic of safety, both trims are furnished with:

  • 7 airbags
