Toyota Vios 2013

As far as new cars go, surely few are as eagerly anticipated as this. The 2013 Toyota Vios entered the Thai market in March, not long after which we brought you a live gallery from the Bangkok show.

UPDATE: 2013 Toyota Vios now launched in Malaysia – click here for launch report

And now it seems our turn is nigh – our sister classifieds site has yielded a listing for the popular B-segment sedan that suggests a Malaysian launch in October.

Apart from stating that G and TRD versions will come with leather seats and push start, the ad doesn’t offer any other details of the equipment or trim levels that will be available here. An indicative price of RM80,313 is mentioned – but this has yet to go official, of course.

As you know by now, the 2013 Toyota Vios gets a new exterior and interior as well as projector headlamps (G and S grade only). At 4.41 metres long, 1.7 metres wide (including wing mirrors) and 1.475 metres tall, it’s slightly bigger than the outgoing car.

The familiar 109 PS/141 Nm 1.5 litre 1NZ-FE motor soldiers on, as does the four-speed auto ‘box. J, E, G and S grade variants are available in Thailand. Click here for full information and Thai pricing and specs, or here to go to the ad.
