UMW Toyota Motor recently unveiled the newest edition of its highly successful subcompact sedan, the Toyota Vios.
Keeping in line with Toyota’s trend of offering continuously improved vehicles, the carmaker has combined a number of advanced automotive technologies with all new specifications to give the all-new Toyota Vios superior ownership value.
“The response for the all-new Toyota Vios has been phenomenal with 5000 orders collected to date. This is a testament to the popularity of the all-new Toyota Vios in the Malaysian market,” says UMW Toyota Motor president Datuk Ravindran K.
“We are excited to kick off the year with the launch of the all-new Toyota Vios, which represents our commitment to provide customers with the best quality vehicles and services. We look forward to a promising year ahead, full of opportunities to drive Malaysia’s economic growth and development.”
The all-new Vios
A hit amongst Malaysians since its introduction in 2003, the new Toyota Vios boasts improved performance, quicker acceleration and advanced safety technology.
This makes it an even more compelling choice for those looking for a reliable, efficient and affordable car.
The car’s proven 1.5-litre DOHC Dual VVT-i engine has been improved to deliver stronger performance. With its new 7-speed CVT with sequential shiftmatic, the car also has quicker acceleration with enhanced fuel efficiency.
The new model comes equipped with the Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) feature, which offers enhanced safety for both driver and passenger. The TSS has the capability to alert the driver of dangers and will act autonomously to prevent or avoid a collision.
Other new features such as paddle shifters and an electronic parking brake add more convenience to modern motoring.
The all-new Toyota Vios doesn’t just exude a premium experience in terms of safety and performance either, as the car is also fitted with high-grade displays, redesigned seats for a more comfortable driving posture, and improved materials throughout the interior cabin.
Unparalleled manufacturing standards
Manufactured at Assembly Services Sdn Bhd (ASSB) in Bukit Raja, Klang, quality standards are met throughout the efficient assembly process – following the “Toyota Way”.
The latest iteration of the Toyota Vios is the first vehicle to incorporate state-of-the-art technology during assembly such as using ultra-high tensile materials, a continuous frame design and increased welding spots – to give the car higher body rigidity and reduced mass.
“The use of advanced technology in the assembly of the all-new Toyota Vios not only enhances the quality and efficiency of production, but also promotes the upskilling of our workforce, knowledge expansion within the industry and contributed positively to the local economy,” says Ravindran.
“We are proud to be driving growth in the nation through our commitment to quality standards and innovative manufacturing processes.”
A Vios for everyone
When it comes to purchasing the all-new Toyota Vios, customers have a wide range of options available, as the car comes in multiple variants with different accessories to help future Vios owners customise their vehicles to their liking.
The new model comes in two variants – the 1.5G (AT) Advanced and the 1.5E (AT) – and five colour selections, with the addition of the new Spicy Scarlet colour option.
The all-new Toyota Vios comes with a five-year warranty with unlimited mileage. Prospective owners can enjoy Toyota’s 24Seven Road Assist and a three-year free subscription for the Toyota Telematics System which monitors your car’s location at all times.
