The Toyota Vios is a 4-door subcompact sedan developed for the South East Asia and China markets.

First generation (2003–present)

The first generation Vios was assembled at Thailand ‘s 1 million square metre Toyota Gateway Plant in Gateway City, Amphoe Plaeng Yao. Chachoengsao Province. as part of a cooperative project between Thai engineers and Toyota’s Japanese designers.

The Vios in Thailand, Indonesia. Singapore. Brunei. and Malaysia. and Taiwan is powered by 1.5 liter 1NZ-FE engine with VVT-i. The smaller 1.3 liter 2NZ-FE engine is offered in the Philippines.

In China, the Vios comes with an 8A-FE engine. Trim levels for Southeast Asia include J, E, S, and G, while the DLX, GL, GLX, and GLXi are offered in China .

The first generation Vios was adapted from the Toyota Platz with modified body panels, which created a significantly different appearance, although portions of the car feature design cues from the E120 Corolla [ citation needed ]. In late 2005, the Vios received minor cosmetic changes for the 2006 model year. The front bumper, grille, headlights, and tail lights were freshened; also new were the wheels and interior trim.

In other uses, the first generation Vios is adopted as a racing vehicle in Touring Car Championships in Indonesia and Thailand. The car is also in use as taxicabs in Indonesia but features lesser equipment and is specially rebadged as the Toyota Limo . This is not to be confused with certain taxis with the same name in Thailand. which uses Toyota Corollas.

The Vios in the Philippines has 3 grades: the base 1.3 J with a l4 2NZ-FE engine, VVT-i. 13 steel wheels and a central instrumental digital display. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.3 E is the same as the J grade, only that it had different wheels, which is a 15 alloy 5-spoke wheel.

The 1.5 G is the top-of-the-line segment, either mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission or 5-speed manual transmission, and the same wheel as to that of the E variant. The only difference of the 2003 Vios to the 2007 is their air dams and their fog lamp casing.

Vios Turbo

A Turbo variant of the first generation Vios was made available in Thailand only, boasting a turbocharged 1.5 liter engine with an air-to-air intercooler that produces 143 PS with light boost. Standard on the Vios Turbo are a functional scoop on its hood, wrap-around body kits, stiffer springs, firmer shock-absorbers and 16 alloys. The transmission ratio differential ratio were based on that of a Toyota MR-S. Vios is the top selling car in the world in 2009
