New 2017 Toyota Vios facelift debuts

By Faiming_low on 23 Jan 2017

Attached Image Toyota Motor Thailand has just launched the facelifted Vios and it gets an updated Dual VVT-i engine that will be paired with a CVT transmission.

Attached Image Outputting 108bhp and 140Nm from the new naturally-aspirated 1.5-litre four, the 2017 Vios is said to be more fuel efficient than before. According to paultan.org, there is no manual override function for the transmission which is sounds like a step backwards to us.

Attached Image On the outside, the Vios gets a light but noticeable refresh thanks to the new bumpers with DRL lights, grill, headlights and tailights. The alloy wheels get a new design too.

Attached Image Inside, we could not spot anything different other than the new speedometer cluster design.

It is unknown when we will receive the new updated 2017 Vios.

Borneo Motors recently launched the updated pre-facelift Vios locally which already has this Dual-VVTi and CVT combo (SGCarmart site still shows specs of the old VVTi/4-speed auto model though). This is merely just a cosmetic upgrade.
