Just last week after Honda Malaysia teased the arrival of the All New Honda City 2020 to Malaysia, Toyota, specifically in the Philippines has launched the Toyota Vios 2020 facelift.
So just what's new in the Toyota Vios 2020 facelift?
New three-tier headlights, a new grille and a new bumper to bring the whole package together. The headlights are now LED reflectors. The rear lights also get the same LED treatment, however, this only applies to the more premium variants. Fog lights that sit nicely into the new front bumper housing also come as standard on the upper trim levels.
The new grille by far is the biggest departure from the current Toyota Vios, the facelift just flows more seamlessly, it doesn't gape at you like a rapper with diamond teeth akin to the current version. It's more Sam Smith than Lil' Wayne which I think is a step up.
the Toyota Vios is the same as the current one. The same rear, the same wheel size options, Phillipines has the same similar fuel-efficient 2NR-FE Dual VVTi engine paired with a CVT-type automatic that we get here too.
It retails for RM91,200 in the Philippines for the range-topping 1.5G CVT.
How much will cost in Malaysia? When will it get here? - not so soon I think seeing as how we only received the current model last year. Why is everything so slow in Malaysia?
