In anticipation of the upcoming Toyota Gazoo Racing (TGR) Vios Challenge in August, UMW Toyota Motor has opened up bookings for a special Vios called the Toyota Vios Sports Edition. The sporty Vios is inspired visually by the TGR Vios Challenge race car, based on the existing Vios 1.5 J AT.
Outside, the Toyota Vios receives the same aerokit as the race car, including a front apron, side skirts, rear apron and trunk spoiler. Completing the exterior of the Vios Sports Edition are blacked-out alloy wheels, Sport Edition emblem and body decal similar to the Vios Challenge race car.
Inside, the sportier Vios comes with exclusive sports fabric seats, sports gear lever, illuminated scuff plates, amber illumination and sports carpet mat. The rest of the interior is similar to the entry-level Vios, including the standard 2-DIN audio system with four speakers, fixed rear seats and Smart Entry with Push Start button.
Elsewhere, the Toyota Vios Sports Edition comes standard with sports suspension that lowers the car by 27 mm. The familiar 1.5-litre Dual VVT-i four-cylinder petrol engine continues to be offered on the sportier Vios, with 107 PS and 140 Nm sent to the front wheels via a CVT.
Those interested will need to fork out RM85,300, OTR without insurance. In comparison, the regular Vios 1.5 J AT retails for RM77,400. Vios Sports Edition buyers are backed by the company's five-year unlimited mileage warranty. Last but not least, buyers of the Vios Sports Edition will also receive a TGR polo T-shirt, cap and tumbler.
