A refreshed face, a more modern cabin, improved refinement and a slew of standard safety features make the Vios even more of a value proposition.

Review
Have been driving my ride for over a year now and feel it is time to leave my personal feedback.

Last year my family of 4 said YES! After viewing the car and did a thorough test drive loading the car with 5 adults!

The engine has so far been performing quietly yet responsively to my touch with it's new 7-speed sport sequential shiftmatic gearbox delivering power whenever needed and never feeling under powered.

External noise isolation is on par with other makes that I have owned before (Subaru, Suzuki, Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes, Citreon, Chevrolet) and the sound system sounded exceptionally good after some adjustment to the entertainment system settings.

It is our family's first Vios and we are totally enjoying our ride.

What I like
New Model with Total Exterior & Interior Facelift.
Choice of 2 Tone Interior and Trimmings.
Spacious interior with flat rear floor.
5 Years Unlimited mileage warranty.
3 years/60k free servicing.
My Toyota App.

What I do not like
Headlights do not automatically switches off when engine is off.
Side mirrors do not auto folds in sync with engine on/off.
Doors do not auto lock upon drive off.
Limited storage spaces.
Dash cam w/o screen.
Thin floor mats.

Review
Took this car up and down Melaka for 4 days.
More spacious then older versions.
Seats are fine, rear leg room enough for an average adult.
Interior looks basic, with head unit also looking average (imagine an older version entry level smart phone, it's basic). Speakers are bad.
The drive - Wind noise and road noise is intruding at 90kmh and above. Beyond 110kmh, the steering does not provide good feedback and you can feel the car drifting side by side.
Fuel economy is really average. Engine is loud and weak. If you are looking to accelerate off, it is impossible. It will take its time to rev till the desired speed before settling down. Overtaking is bang average.
Not one I would want to spend tens of thousands as my car. This is coming from an ex Vios owner.

What I like
None, ok maybe the space and exterior design

What I do not like
Too much but it feels a step back,

Review
Settled on the Vios E grade after checking out several other alternatives in the same category (city, accent), hatches (note, jazz). The E series does not come with leather seats, nor with GPS.

Drive is smooth and predictable. Gas pedal is responsive. For its size, its an easy drive. Steering is rather light though. Fuel economy is good (14km/l) on first pump (mix of 70% Highway), and I expect it to improve after the initial servicing and run-in.

What I like
Sizeable boot space
Keyless entry and engine start
Generous width for its class
7 SRS airbags

What I do not like
No rear aircon
Middle armrest eats into the backseat

Review
Just bought the G Grade last weekend since COE is lower now. Rear room is bigger than what I expected, seats are comfortable as well. Boot space is pretty decent, it will get even bigger when knocking down the rear seats. The CVT gearbox is quite smooth but isn't the most exciting to drive. Engine can be quite underpowered since it's 1.5 L. At the end of the day this is a family car that serves it's purpose to bring me from point A to B so overall it's still value for money.

What I like
- Traction Control
- 7 Airbags
- Keyless entry and engine start
- Leather seats & steering wheel
- Auto headlights
- Reverse camera & Navigation
- LED DRL
- Knockdown rear seats
- Hill start assist and other braking controls
- Decent rear room
- Traction control
- Reliability

What I do not like
- Quite underpowered
- No rear aircon

Review
Vios was my first car that I had contact with. I learnt my driving lessons and passed the test with it. The car is not too small, not too big, and it looks neat. Easy to drive and steering is tight. As a newbie, I can handle it pretty well. Interior-wise is not so fancy. Just a simple audio system and weather control. Seats are comfortable and spacious. I would definitely recommend this to beginners.

What I like
Mid-Size
Stylish Exterior
Steering

What I do not like
No reverse camera
No playback controls on steering wheel
