Previously, DRLs were included in the Vios only if buyers stumped out the extra cash to opt for the Aerokit package that consist of a front lower lip, rear lower lip, side skirts, and a duck tail rear spoiler.
No other alterations were made to the Vios, but running changes added to the vehicle since its launch in 2013 has seen it quietly acquire a commendable level of amenities across the board.
Currently, all variants of the Vios are fitted with keyless entry, alloy wheels, anti-lock brakes, reverse sensors, dual frontal airbags, and JPJ-compliant Toyota Premium Security & Solar Film as standard. We await the introduction of electronic stability control, however.
Later this year, the Vios is due for a more significant upgrade that will see the introduction of a new 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i engine from the NR family to replace the long-serving 1NZ-FE powerplant currently in use.
In its current 2016 guise, pricing of the Vios is as follows (OTR with insurance, private individual registration in Peninsular Malaysia):
- 1.5J M/T – RM77,980
- 1.5J A/T – RM81,880
- 1.5E A/T – RM87,580
- 1.5G A/T – RM93,380
- 1.5 TRD Sportivo – RM97,980
