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.

The new Toyota Vios, correspondingly, comes adorned with the same front profile as the Thai Yaris with a slim upper grille and another large lower grille sided by halogen reflector headlights with daytime running lights (DRLs). Besides, the side is sleeker with 15-inch alloys while the rear facet is neater with extended taillights. As to the G variant, projector headlights with LED DRLs, 16-inch bi-tone wheels and LED taillights are all provided.

Interior-wise, a more modern design is carried over. Particularly, we can realize the 3-spoke steering wheel from the Toyota Corolla 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.
