Toyota Vios

Discontinued In

There is now a pretty strong that the 2013 Toyota with a new face will be in the second half of 2013. from the alleged leaked available on the internet showing being tested on the road, all sedans now sported a new grille or lifted and the Vios is the only one yet.

However, there are disturbing news went as far as 2011 that Toyota no longer produce the Vios or the version of the Yaris. If this this maybe a blunder on part especially in places Indonesia where Vios is sells pretty well.

The is that Toyota Vios is not an car type in itself but rather it is a version of the Toyota Yaris.

And now the Yaris sells a lot more the Vios, Toyota has decided to on the Yaris and drop the Vios to line its line up. The example is that similar car goes by the Belta in Japan and Pakistan is for just one class below the has been discontinued June year.

Although the Indonesian version of and Vios use the same 4 cylinders, 16 valve DOHC with engine code named it is very difficult to say if a particular car is the same car type with names in different countries. The is that each country has a different culture and car market simply changing the name may not be At what point can a car still be the same car when most of its and engines are difference?

The Toyota Vios certainly much better than the sedan version.

Another for the discontinuation is that the Vios is not and the Corolla can fill the void by the car, again, to stream its line up. This is also to justify.

Looking at both of the price point, the top of the line 1.5 TRD A/T priced at “only” Rp 269 million the entry level Grand New 1.8 G A/T Altis is priced at Rp 369 million. Rp 100 million price difference, the would be buyers will go for Honda City or the rumored New Baleno rather than up to the Corolla.

Simply put, in the city car Toyota does not have any car that can replace the Vios. The Agya which is collaboration Toyota and Daihatsu compete in a class.

It is also possible Toyota discontinued the Yaris version elsewhere but continues Toyota Vios

Last but not is the Vios sales performance. the Toyota Vios does not as good as the flagship Avanza or the it still one of the best seller of in Indonesia beating the Camry and the by a good margin.

If Toyota does decide to producing the Vios, it doesn’t that there will be no new sold in Indonesia, it will mean the current model stay for a while until decide that it is no longer to sell the Vios.

At the end of the day, is just what it is. Should decide to scrap the Vios, will be other models to replace it. This model may not at the moment in Indonesia but in all likelihood, is elsewhere.

It is also possible Toyota discontinued the Yaris version elsewhere but continues Toyota Vios exclusively for the market which mean there will be a 2013 lifted Toyota Vios just around the corner.

Vios    1.5 TRD A/T   Rp. 269,050,000
