2007 Toyota Vios and photos

UMW Toyota Motor had a preview for the new Toyota Vios today, so here is the latest details on the variants of the Toyota that will be available in

The new Toyota Vios is bigger the previous version although it somewhat smaller because of Toyota Yaris hatchback Read more on the new Toyota which is in its second generation in Malaysia, after the jump.

Updated with more today, as my DVD drive was abit yesterday.

UPDATE #2: The official prices for the 2007 Toyota has been released by UMW Toyota The 1.5S costs RM88,100, the costs RM84,800 and finally the 1.5E costs RM78,700. here for more details .

The Vios is basically the sedan of the Toyota Yaris, in fact in countries the duo have been the Yaris hatch and sedan or the hatch and sedan. Over in Malaysia it uses the Vios in line with Toyota#8217;s plans for the region.

The new Vios a completely new chassis which has a wheelbase compared to the previous Cabin length is 1965mm and height is 1200mm. This to a 120mm increase in interior and a 5mm increase in interior height car is 25mm taller).

Total cabin internal is a total of 2,466 litres.

I am tall and I got into the rear and did not have any legroom problems. If I sit up and rest the back of my head the headrest, my head will the roof of the car, but if I sit up straight and my neck up straight as well, the tips of my hair touches the Neither my head nor hair the roof of the car if I slouch a little in the seat. This should you an idea about the car#8217;s headroom.

The rear has a flat like the Perodua Viva#8217;s, should help with the rear passenger#8217;s comfort.

Vios 1.5E and 1.5G (the 1.5E does not integrated audio)

Toyota 1.5S interior

The interior again uses a centrally meter panel and the overall is similiar to the Toyota Yaris. The sporty model uses meters for the center meter with multi-info display, the others use a conventionally backlit panel. I don#8217;t see why this by downgrading of spec is necessary as the Myvi gets Optitron

The multi-info display shows from the trip computer as distance traveled, trip A, B, real time fuel average fuel consumption, range and average vehicle

The 1.5G and 1.5S mid range and end sporty models feature a center dash layout an integrated CD tuner with MP3 and WMA speed-sensitive volume which volume according to how fast you are and steering wheel audio The Vios 1.5E base uses a 1-DIN audio with no steering wheel controls.

The climate control are arranged in a triangular fashion this allows the lower of the center dash area to be thinner, allowing for a little area to be built around it. A design has been used allows gate shifts for all gears #8211; no need to use an OD to get from 4th to 3rd at highway speeds.

In of safety, an SRS driver#8217;s airbag is on all models while the 1.5G and the gains an additional front airbag. Each SRS airbag comes with a corresponding and force limited seatbelt. brakes, EBD and Brake Assist is standard on all models.

All models have collapsible steering columns, an automatic impact fuel cut device, and whiplash lessening seats.

The 1NZ-FE engine has the same on paper (109PS at 6,000rpm and of torque at 4,200rpm) as the previous but Toyota says they made changes to the intake, and ECU programming to improve the low to mid-end even though final torque and horsepower figures the same. An electric power system is now used instead of the generation car#8217;s hydraulic steering.

Instead of a Super-CVT option available in other this engine is mated to a automatic gearbox which the same ratios as it#8217;s but the transmission control unit has been improved. Toyota#8217;s chief engineer Yoshihiro said that a 4-speed was picked for this region of customer feedback #8211; do not like the rubberband and stepless character of a CVT.

475 litres of capacity for the new Toyota Vios

If you there is no antenna protruding anywhere on the Vios as this new uses a glass imprinted on the rear windscreen. Not only this make the car more but this way there is no protruding for anyone to steal! The new car#8217;s has a capacity of 475 litres #8211; is 75 litres more than the generation Vios.

Of course, this boot can be extended by folding down the 60:40 split rear The boot opening is 680mm the road surface, which is low so that items load easily into the boot you do not have to lift it too high to get it in.

have expected the new Toyota to have a baseline model at under RM70,000 like UMW has indicated earlier, but apparently to UMW Toyota this could not be even though they #8211; apparently despite more parts locally before (local content is now at or a total of 149 parts including panels from Toyota Body Malaysia), prices for the Vios 1.5E had to go up by 3.5% and the by 1.7%.

UMW Toyota#8217;s director Dato#8217; David says this is because of the value of the Thai baht the Malaysian ringgit. It#8217;s too bad that they decided not to the price, but then again, if is the case I suppose UMW Toyota be happy at the same time they can be making more each Toyota Hiace to Thailand if the situation continues. a lower end manual transmission with a smaller engine can be at a later date to achieve the RM70k entry level price target?

I would say that Toyota has to smoothen out the strange rear to boot curve that sedans built from and the result is not too bad at all #8211; the car does not overly unbalanced, and the rear on the 1.5S helps to further out the rear curves. The car looks in real life compared to how it in photos.

Other than the spoiler, the 1.5S model#8217;s also includes a front and side skirts. It will quite unconventional to almost at first, but people will get used to it#8217;s looks I Despite the S intending to stand for the differences between the 1.5S and the are mainly of equipment level there is no sports suspension for the 1.5S straight from the

Toyota Vios 1.5E and interior

Toyota Vios interior

The 1.5S interior alot more premium the 1.5E and the 1.5G though, of the darker colours used psychologically is disassociated with the cheapish beige or light plastic that we#8217;re to seeing in A-segment and B-segment The Optitron meter and the amber-backlit for the integrated audio also better in my opinion than the version on the 1.5G.

For a full listing of what of the 1.5E, 1.5G and 1.5S levels offer, please my previous post on the Toyota specs. Prices remain at for the 1.5S, and RM85,300 for the 1.5G, but the has had it#8217;s estimated priced from RM79,200 to RM78,900. remain unconfirmed and the official will only be announced on the of October 2007.

Four are available and you will be able to see all of them in the pictures in this #8211; silver, black, and gold.

I will try to get a test sometime next month and to you my findings on how the Toyota Vios is on the road. If you want to see the car for yourself in the head on to the Mid Valley Exhibition today from 5pm to 10pm!
