Here’s a promotional video from Indonesia for the new 2013 Toyota Vios, highlighting features including its “catamaran shape roof,” remote boot release and new interior design.

What caught our eye is a rather premium-looking touch-screen in place of the standard radio unit – something we don’t believe we saw in the Thai-spec cars. It features a DVD player, internet browser, finger gesture recognition, drag-and-drop icons, M-Toyota app, wireless auto answer, voice command and Bluetooth connectivity. No mention of navigation, though.

A quick check on Toyota Indonesia’s website reveals this system to be offered only on the G-grade cars. Indonesia gets E M/T, E A/T, G M/T and G A/T variants, priced between Rp 242.5 and 272.5 million (RM76,360-85,800).

Closer to home, the 2013 Toyota Vios has popped up on our sister classifieds site oto.my, in regular and TRD Sportivo forms. An October launch has been suggested for Malaysia. Full information and Thai pricing and specs here, and a live gallery from the Bangkok show here.
