Toyota has not been very successful when it came to sedans - except for the Corolla, the Toyota Etios is one the best cars in the market, however, it has been doing well as a cab. Many of them still bet by the performance and the post sales of Toyota.
The Toyota Vios will be positioned between the Etios and the Corolla and compete with the likes of Honda City and Maruti Ciaz. The octagonal grille and the wide open air intake makes up the front fascia, and must say it looks aggressive.
The rising shoulder line and the flared wheel arches give the Vios a sporty look. The rear profile is premium with wrapped around tail lamps and the large chrome strip makes up the sporty Vios.
