Toyota displayed the 2017 Toyota Vios facelift at the Thai Motor Expo held earlier this month. The Toyota Vios is available in Thailand in J, E, G and S grades while the car displayed is the range-topping S grade.
On the outside, the Vios S features blackened projector headlights with a LED light guide, dark grey metallic front grille, chrome door handles and boot lid appliqué and exclusive, 16-inch alloy wheels.
For the interior, Toyota has used a black color scheme with contrasting red highlights on the dashboard, door panels and seats. Other elements worth noting include Sport analog meter, 7-inch multimedia infotainment system, leather/synthetic leather seat upholstery and metallic door handles.
The 2017 Toyota Vios is 4,420 mm long, 1,700 mm wide and 1,475 mm tall. It has a 2,550 mm wheelbase and a 145 mm ground clearance. It employs the 2NR-FBE 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i engine under the hood across the range. This four-cylinder petrol engine develops 108 PS at 6,000 rpm and 140 Nm of torque at 4,200 rpm. A continuously variable transmission sends power to the wheels.
Indus Motors Company (IMC) in Pakistan is currently in process of discontinuing the 1.3 liter Corolla XLi/ GLi variants most likely by July 2018, whereas according to reports local vendors have already started the development of Toyota Vios parts.
The Vios in Pakistan will carry the same 1.3 liter 2NZ-FE engine that comes with the current Corolla XLi and GLI, while the 1.5 liter 2NR-FBE engine can also be offered to take on the rival Honda City (1.3 & 1.5).
