Toyota Vios 2013


The Toyota Vios is a four-door subcompact sedan developed for the South East Asia, China, and Taiwan markets.
Introduced in 2002, the Vios serves as a replacement of the Toyota Tercel (called the Toyota Soluna in Thailand and Indonesia), which filled the Asian subcompact market for a 1.5 liter  below the Toyota Corolla and Toyota Camry, both of which are also marketed in the region. The Vios is marketed alongside the Toyota Yaris in most countries in South East Asia, which offered another option for a hatchback, when it officially entered the region's market in 2005. In the United States, the second generation Vios is known as the Toyota Yaris sedan.
The new Vios is essentially a re-badged Toyota Belta sedan, which launched in November 2005. The model code for cars with 1.5 liter 1NZ-FE engines is NCP93. The engine is only available where the Vios is marketed, including the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei and Thailand. As was the first generation Vios, the second generation Vios is assembled at Thailand's Toyota Gateway Plant and also at the Philippines Santa Rosa, Laguna Plant. In the Americas it is marketed as the Yaris Sedan, replacing the Echo sedan, with production sourced from Japan.
In terms of reliability, there is one proof that the Vios is as reliable as death and taxes. It's a good thing indeed, but image-wise, it just kills the Vios. The Vios is a favorite of taxi fleets. Taxi fleets want something very tough, very simple, easy to maintain, sips fuel like a miser, and has very affordable parts that are readily available. Driving the Vios is okay--nothing really special--but there's also a sense of indestructibility about it. Resilience is a better word to describe the feeling of safety that the Vios offers. Whereas the City feels like a solid structure hewn from a single block of metal, the Vios feels like an organic, shape-changing and adapting material that wraps around you. It feels rubbery, less sharp, less precise to drive, especially when you're on the move. But traffic driving is a strong suit of the Vios because it's engine is very responsive low-down, whereas the City's engine tends to pull all the way to red line better with a slight loss in low-end grunt as a compromise.
There’s also a new 15-inch 12-spoke design alloy wheel wrapped by 185/60 series tyres. The wheel gets slapped on the 1.5E and 1.5J, and replaces the 14-inches from before. The change is significant for the 1.5J, as it previously had steel wheels with a cover.
Inside, the only change is with new seat material, complete with fresh fabric pattern. As for safety, the front passenger now gets a SRS airbag, replete with seatbelt pre-tensioner and force-limiter, making it two for the count.
The new Vios was designed for more comfort than handling. Interior is much upgraded with more convenience features, and flat rear floor.
