UPDATE: We now have full details on the 2013 Toyota Vios. Click the link to read our detailed story from the 2013 Bangkok Motor Show where the Vios was launched.
These are the first official pictures of the new 2013 Toyota Vios B-segment sedan, set to make it’s global debut at the 2013 Bangkok Motor Show this week.
They basically confirm the spyshots that we’ve seen previously – the new Toyota Vios now takes on a sharper and sportier look, a huge departure from the previous rounded looks that we’ve all learned to associate with a certain animal. These images feature foglamps, while the car in the spyshots didn’t.
This new sharper design language first appeared its debut on cars such as the current generation Toyota Prius, and the US market Toyota Camry and Toyota Avalon featured this design language as well. After this new Vios, the next car to get it will probably be the new Toyota Corolla.
We don’t have a rear view of the new Vios in this set of official photos, but if you’d like to check it out you can refer to our previous spyshots of the Toyota Vios snapped in an undisclosed location.
The interior has an all-new design as well, and returns to putting the instrument cluster behind the steering wheel. The instrument cluster features a sporty three-binnacle design with red/amber backlighting, while the centre stack uses blue backlighting, with the air cond vents separating the audio controls at the top and the air cond controls at the bottom. It’s very different from the interior of it’s hatchback-bodied B-segment stablemate, the Toyota Yaris.
We’ll bring you more details on the 2013 Toyota Vios from the Bangkok Motor Show 2013 this week, but in the meanwhile, do share with us what you think of the new Vios – is the new styling to your liking?
