After much waiting, the Vios compact sedan from Toyota is likely to be launched in the country in second quarter of 2018. Reports indicate that the Japanese automaker might showcase the vehicle at 2018 Auto Expo event. Third generation of the Vios has been launched in Thailand last year and India might get the latest one. Post launch, Toyota Vios is expected to emerge as a strong competitor against Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, the new Verna and the Honda City.

Like the international one, the India-spec Vios will also get a 1.5-litre petrol engine which generates 106 bhp and 140 Nm of peak torque. The fairly powered engine will come mated to a 5-speed manual as well as optional 7-Speed CVT. Exclusively for India, the vehicle might be offered with a 1.4-litre engine which will be carried forward from the Etios. As for safety, the Vios is likely to get traction control, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX mounts for child seats, and dual airbags as standard, while the top-spec model might get ESP.

In terms of dimensions, the Toyota Vios measures 4420 mm in length and has a decent wheelbase of 2550 mm. Along with fairly decent interior upholstery, the vehicle will be offered with a touchscreen infotainment system. More details about the vehicle will be known in the coming days and far as pricing is concerned it is expected to be priced between Rs 7.0 - Rs 12.0 lakh (Ex-showroom).
