Toyota Vios

Giant Toyota is bringing out the arsenal! We’ve just seen the production next-gen Corolla Altis uncovered for the first time, and now comes spyshots of the upcoming third-generation Toyota Vios! This is big news, given how popular the B-segment Vios is in Malaysia and the ASEAN region.

Amazingly, this set of spyshots show the new Vios without an inch of disguise, and wearing model number plates as seen in official pics.

From these pics, the new Vios appears larger and sharper. It looks more handsome too, shedding the bulbous “dugong” face of the current car for a V-shaped nose that integrates grille and headlamps – the same arrangement seen on the next-gen Corolla Altis and Auris hatchback.

At the back, the tail lamp cluster is much larger now, and is wrapped around the sides. There’s also a chrome bar linking both ends above the number plate. Looks good, and my initial impression is that it looks like a car from a larger class (like the current Altis), and a proper sedan without hatchback roots.

The new Vios, what do you think?
