Toyota India finally plans to debut the Vios in India at the 2018 Auto Expo.

Also known as Yaris Ativ in many markets, the Vios has been in Toyota’s pipelines since a few years now. The Vios is Toyota’s take on the segment dominated by the Honda City, Maruti Suzuki Ciaz, Hyundai Verna and Volkswagen Vento. It will be positioned above the Etios as a flagship sedan. The Vios has been spotted testing on the Indian roads on many occasions already.

As far as the specification is concerned, the Indian-spec Vios will be similar to the ASEAN-spec launched in Thailand and Singapore. It will measure 4,425mm in length, 1,730mm in width and 1,475mm in height with a wheelbase of 2,550mm and a 133mm ground clearance. Powering it will be the 1.5-litre VVT-i petrol engine that produces 105bhp and 140Nm of torque. The oil burner could be the 1.4-litre D-4D diesel engine that develops 87bhp and 205Nm which also does its duty in the Corolla Altis. Toyota might offer the five-speed manual as standard with the option of CVT as well.

The Vios is a handsome looking sedan finished with the same design language as the modern Toyotas like the Prius and the Camry. It carries sleek LED headlights with DRL and similarly designed tail lights, stylish 16-inch alloy wheels, large gaping grille with air vents and subtle overall styling. On the inside, expect all the features that can be offered in this segment like a touchscreen infotainment system, climate control, sunroof, rear AC vents, and dual-tone cabin. The Toyota also boasts of the best-in-class cabin space which could give it an instant upper hand over its direct rivals.

We expect Toyota to keep the prices competitive. The Vios will fall in the price bracket of Rs 8 – 11 lakhs.
