KUALA LUMPUR: UMW Toyota Motor has launched the new Vios in three variants with updated styling and more cabin space as well as safety features.

The company is currently upbeat in terms of sales with close to 4,000 bookings and targets to sell more than 30,000 units before the end of the year.

Prices (without insurance) for the Vios start with the entry-level 1.5J at RM77,200.00 and is followed by the mid-range 1.5E at RM81,200.00, and the range-topping 1.5G at RM87,300.00.

The new Vios, with an improved 1.5-litre engine mated to a continuously variable transmission, is available in five colour choices (dark blue metallic, red mica metallic, attitude black, silver metallic and super white II) and is accompanied by a five-year unlimited mileage warranty.

Among the key features of the car are seven airbags, better driving dynamics, sportier looking design, updated interior and a new instrument clustre.

“Over the last 16 years, we have sold almost half a million Vios (more than 420,000 units), making it the most popular make in its segment,” said UMW Toyota Motor president Ravindran K.
