Vios TRD Sportivo Thailand-15

Toyota has introduced the Toyota Vios TRD Sportivo in Thailand. Priced at 694,000 baht (RM73,985), the new TRD Sportivo is the middle variant of the Thai Vios range, sitting below the top S and G, but above the E and base J variants.

The TRD Sportivo adds on new 15-inch wheels (with 185/60 tyres), a black front grille garnish, LED daytime running lights, chromed tail pipe, front/rear bumper add-ons and side skirts.

Interior enhancements include black leather with carbon fibre-like trim on the seats, with matching interior trim, plus a reverse camera. No mechanical changes, so the 1NZ-FE 1.5 litre VVTi engine with 109 PS and 141 Nm carries on, paired to a four-speed automatic.

The TRD Sportivo add ons you see here differ from the kit that’s currently available in Malaysia, so it could be a preview of things to come. In front, the black strip above the Toyota logo is a new part, replacing the stock chrome item. The DRLs are still located below the fog lamps, but the new bumper extension looks more streamlined here, with the big lower grille’s original shape maintained.

There’s also a black lip that matches the black side skirts, and the wheels are new two-tone, 10-spoke items – with Toyota Racing Development centre caps, of course.

At the back, there’s a dramatic looking boot spoiler, and the entire piece of rear bumper add-on is in black. Our current item has a “floating” black piece in the middle. Each part has a small TRD Sportivo logo to mark it out as original. There’s also a black/red decal that “flows” from the headlamps to the front doors.
