Vios Pros & Cons

By Abhishek Katariya on May 20, 2022
Things We Like in Vios

Compared to the previous generation model, the new Toyota Vios manages to look fresh with a very contemporary upgrade in terms of exterior looks. The busier looking front end, along with flowing theme for the side profile and curvy tail lamps make it look fresh and very much updated.

The new Toyota Vios definitely feels premium and upgraded on the inside as well, as it feels bigger, more comfortable and richer in terms of comfort and convenience features. The introduction of a couple of more premium features from Corolla as well as roof-mounted AC vents does score full marks in pampering the inner occupants.

Being a pioneer of safety, the Toyota Vios is feature-packed when it comes to being equipped with safety features. Things like seven airbags, panoramic view monitor, blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert, tire pressure monitoring system and hill start assist are some features which are still not available in the competition.

Things We Dont Like in Vios

While Toyota has tried to make things look exciting, the overall performance levels from the powertrain doesn’t feel that enticing. The 1.5-litre petrol engine which powers the Toyota Vios neither is too involving to drive with its boring power delivery, nor it excels too much with its average fuel economy.

While the steering setup is soft and convenient for daily city driving, it does not feel too much connected with the driver, which might be a turn off for many driving enthusiasts.


Recent Updates of Vios

UMW Toyota Motor is about to introduce the new Vios, as suggested by its latest teaser which is a throwback of an old commercial released back in 2005. The video’s caption reads, “Don’t be fooled by the serenity of your surroundings as what is to come will excite you, definitely,” giving us all the right reasons to get excited. Though, throughout the teaser we didn’t get to see the new Vios, but without a doubt it is a solid hint for the updated sedan’s arrival. Recently launched in Thailand, the new Vios showcases a bunch of design and equipment changes. The safety side sees the addition of the Toyota Safety Sense suite of features, including Lane Departure Alert, Pre-Collision System. The mechanical side is expected to remain the same, i.e., a 1.5-litre VVT-i 4-cylinder unit making 107 PS and 140 Nm. The drive will be sent to the front wheels via CVT.

Vios Overview

While the segment of midsize sedans is no more as popular as it used to be once, due to the advent of more compact and midsize SUVs, the older players in the category are still enjoying good demand in the Malaysian market. One such offering is the Toyota Vios, one of the most popular products from Toyota in South-East Asia.

The Toyota Vios made its debut in the Malaysian car market with its first-generation model in 2002, and since then, it has been an instrumental model in the success of Toyota in Malaysia. Currently, the Vios is available in its heavily-updated version of the third-generation model, which is on sale here since 2020.

The facelifted version of the Toyota Vios currently on sale got a heavily revised front end and tweaks to side and rear profiles when compared to the version it replaced. All these visual updates do make it look relevant, despite the arrival of more modern offerings in the same space and the new launches in the SUV segments in the same price bracket. Toyota’s manufacturing facility in Shah Alam, Selangor in Malaysia happens to be the production hub for the Vios for the Malaysian car market.

For the Malaysian car market, Toyota has introduced the Vios sedan in three different variants – J, E and G, all of which come standard with the combination of a 1.5-litre petrol engine and a CVT gearbox, but differ based on features in and out. The colour options which have been made available in the Toyota Vios are Orange Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, Nebula Blue Metallic, Red Mica Metallic and Silver Metallic.


Toyota Vios Interior & Features

The cabin layout of the Toyota Vios has remained unchanged for a long time now, which does make the cabin look contemporary when compared to other cars from the rival automakers and even new-generation Toyotas like Corolla and Avanza. Having said that, the Toyota Vios has one of the most practical and well-laid out interiors on the market today. The all-black cabin of the Vios looks decent, if not bare-basic, with the contrast silver bits on the sides of the centre console and steering wheel adding to the premium appeal of the sedan on the inside. 

Seats and upholstery

While the J and E variants of the Toyota Vios offer fabric seats, the top-spec G variant is bestowed with premium perforated leather seats, with all of them finished in a theme of black. The rear seats of the base-spec J variant are fixed, but the same in the E and G variants get 60:40 split foldability. The rear centre armrest integrated into the rear seats of the Toyota Vios also features two cup holders. 

Comfort and convenience

The cabin of the Toyota Vios is not extremely feature-rich to woo the younger audience, but it still gets a lot of useful bits to make the cabin look new-age and practical. The instrument console of the Toyota Vios looks attractive with chrome surrounds for analogue dials and a comprehensive 4.2-inch full-TFT MID screen. The three-spoke leather-wrapped tilt-adjustable steering wheel looks simple and comes with round-themed buttons on it for audio, Bluetooth and cruise control buttons, with paddle shifters behind it.

The other features which help the cabin of the Toyota Vios look premium are a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a 6-speaker audio system, auto-dimming inside rearview mirror, push start-stop button, automatic climate control, leather front centre armrest and rear AC vents.

Entertainment, information and communication

The E and G variants of the Toyota Vios are specced with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is assisted by a 6-speaker audio system. However, the base-spec J variant of the Vios comes with a 2-DIN audio system which supports CD-player, radio, AUX-in, USB and Bluetooth.


There are plenty of storage spaces available in the cabin of the Toyota Vios. Apart from a wide glovebox on the co-passenger side of the dashboard, the cabin of the Vios has bottle holders within each door panel, two cup holders in the lower centre console and two cup holders in the rear centre armrest.


Vios Exterior

With this heavily-updated exterior, especially at the front, the Toyota Vios still looks very relevant in this day and age, when much newer vehicles are on sale in the country now. Compared to the previous version, this iteration of the Vios looks very sporty and commands attention.

At the front, the upper part of the grille of the Vios is the same as before, with a rounded Toyota logo sitting within a small body-coloured panel flanked by piano black bits with angular chrome slats between them. These chrome slats flow and integrate within the sleek looking angular full-LED headlamps, which are adorned with L-shaped daytime running LEDs.

It is the lower front profile of the front fascia of the Toyota Vios, which has completely transformed the identity of the sedan when viewed head-on. In the middle, the Vios now gets a Lexus-like large trapezoidal air dam with horizontal slats, all finished in black. The vertical fog lamp housings, which are positioned on the outer corners of the front bumper and house rounded fog lamps at their bottom, are also finished in a theme of gloss black.

Much hasn’t changed in the side profile of this version of the Toyota Vios when compared with the previous iteration of the sedan. The Vios now gets a new theme for the 16-inch machined alloy wheels, while it continues to get chrome-finished outer door handles and turn indicators integrated into the rearview mirrors. At the back too, little has changed in this version of the Vios, apart from new LED inserts in the combination tail lamps, a new boot-mounted slim-looking body-coloured spoiler and a slim diffuser at the bottom of the rear bumper. The reflectors are present in blacked-out housings in the corners of the rear bumper, which spread across the width of the bumper.

The Vios measures 4,410 mm long, 1,700 mm wide and 1,475 mm tall while having a wheelbase of 2,550 mm. The car weighs 1,145 kg, has a boot compartment of 506 litres and has a fuel tank capacity of 42 litres.


Toyota Vios Ride & Handling

The Toyota Vios shares its XP150 series platform with the Yaris hatchback and gets the same suspension setup of Macpherson struts at the front and torsion beam at the rear, both of which are armed with stabilizers. There are two different tyre sizes prescribed for the Vios – 195/60 R16 tyres for the G and E variants and 185/60 R15 tyres for the base-spec J variant.

Like most of the Toyota offerings, the Vios focuses more on comfort and ease of driving, rather than outright driving mannerisms. While the Vios might not be a perfect driver’s delight, it is an easy car to drive, with a comfortable suspension setup making the ride quality plush and smooth. 


Vios Engine & Fuel Consumption

Powering the Toyota Vios is a tried-and-tested and very familiar 1.5-litre four-cylinder 2NR-FE series petrol engine, which also powers some other potent offerings from Toyota like Veloz, Avanza, Rush and Yaris. This engine is the standard powerhouse in all three variants of the Toyota Vios.

This naturally-aspirated petrol engine is offered with a CVT gearbox as standard in all the three variants and is capable of pumping out a maximum power output of 107 PS and a peak torque output of 140 Nm. The engine feels smooth and refined and impresses with its linear power delivery. However, at higher RPMs, the engine feels a bit out of breath and is best enjoyed in the mid-range, where it shines with its refinement levels.

If driven sedately, the Toyota Vios is capable of returning a fuel efficiency figure of 17.24 kmpl in real-world driving conditions. 

Toyota Vios Braking & Safety

Apart from the heavily-updated front profile, another update that this version of the Toyota Vios received is an enhanced set of safety features. It is the first iteration of the Vios to get a set of autonomous driving assistance system (ADAS) features, which include a pre-collision system, lane departure alert and blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert.

The other important safety features of the Toyota Vios are a 3D panoramic rearview monitor, front digital video recorder, vehicle stability control, traction control, hill start assist, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensors and front, side, curtain and driver knee airbags. The Vios also had secured a 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating, which is a testimony to its safety.


Toyotas are generally considered to be reliable vehicles for a long term usage cycle, and the Vios follows the suit by offering a warranty of 5 years and unlimited kilometres. 


Vios Verdict

Toyota Vios vs the competition

The Toyota Vios is one of the oldest cars in the segment of midsize sedans, and its rivals are equally well-established in the market, which are as follows:

Honda City – The Honda City is the biggest arch-rival of the Toyota Vios, and has existed in the Malaysian car market for as many years as the Vios. Currently, in its fifth-generation version, which debuted in 2021, the new Honda City has grown bigger, which offers more advantages over the Vios in terms of space and comfort. There are two engine options on offer – a 1.5-litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine, which produces 121 PS of power and 145 Nm of torque, and a full-hybrid powertrain comprising of a 1.5-litre four-cylinder Atkinson cycle petrol engine, two electric motors and a battery, the maximum power and torque outputs of which are rated at 127 PS of power and 253 Nm of torque.

Nissan Almera – Another Japanese rival to the Toyota Vios is the all-new Nissan Almera, which is one of the newest cars in the midsize sedan segment. Based on the Micra hatchback, the Almera gets an extended boot compartment over the former, while retaining the interior of the Micra with different upholstery options. The Almera is available in Malaysia with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine as standard. Offered with a CVT gearbox as standard, this engine produces 100 PS of maximum power output and 152 Nm of maximum torque output. 

Mazda 2 sedan – Based on the Mazda 2 hatchback, the Mazda 2 sedan is the most compact five-door sedan in Mazda’s lineup for the Malaysia car market. One of the most premium and well-built compact cars on sale in the country, the Mazda 2 is available in Malaysia with a 1.5-litre four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine and a 6-speed automatic gearbox as the standard powertrain. This engine churns out a maximum power output of 115 PS, while the peak torque output is rated at 149 Nm.

 Final words

The Toyota Vios is not a car for a petrolhead who loves to be behind the steering wheel most of the time, nor it is for a buyer with a younger heart who adores and prefers to have new-age cool features in the cabin of his car. Instead, the Toyota Vios purely targets those car buyers who want a simple no-nonsense sedan, which offers a comfortable ride quality for both short and long drives, is easy to drive in every condition, and has a refined and reliable engine and is spacious enough for five people on board. All in all, the Toyota Vios is aimed at those family car buyers, who put their brains before their hearts while making car purchasing decisions.
