Toyota set to launch the Vios sedan in Auto Expo 2018
Toyota will launch a new compact sedan in India, with its unveiling set to take place at the next year’s Auto Expo. The all new Toyota Vios will mark the firm’s entry in the compact sedan section in India. However, the Vios that will come to India will most likely be in its 3rd generation when it comes to India as Toyota will reveal the new gen Vios at the Auto Expo-2018. Toyota recently launched the Vios facelift in Thailand.
The aesthetic designing in the new Toyota Vios gets new projector headlamps, V-shaped front grille with body colored cladding, vertical shaped LED DRL and LED parking lights. Apart from this, there is wraparound tail lights and a chrome strip on the tailgate. The India bound Toyota Vios sedan will be coming with both diesel as well petrol trims.
The 1.5 litre petrol engine will be capable of making a maximum power of 106 BHP and a highest torque of 140 Nm. The diesel trim will share its power with the Toyota Etios sedan. Since Toyota Vios is a C-segment sedan, it will be thrown at a very modest section in India. Hence, it will be up against all of the established players like Skoda Rapid, Honda City, Hyundai Verna and Maruti Suzuki Ciaz. Fascinatingly, the Toyota Vios that is expected in India is presently in its third generation in Thailand. It has already been spotted testing on the Indian roads.
