UMW Toyota Motor Sdn Bhd decided to tease the new 2020 Toyota Vios facelift over the weekend on their official Facebook page, just two weeks after the company announced that the new 2020 Toyota Yaris Facelift is now open for booking.
Two teaser images were shared on Facebook in which one showed the front fascia of the new 2020 Toyota Vios, while the other also showed the face of the new Vios, but next to the new 2020 Toyota Yaris.
Besides the fact that UMW Toyota Motor is now inviting potential buyers to register their interest or to book the new 2020 Toyota Vios, no other details like the launch date, price, or the specifications have been revealed.
However, the specifications should be identical to the 2020 Toyota Yaris which is essentially the same car but in a hatchback form.
That being said, the list of features in the new Yaris which we can expect to be offered in the new Vios includes a new front grille, triple bezel full LED Headlights, and repositioned Fog Lights on more pronounced and carved front bumper than the outgoing model.
Where safety is concerned, we can expect the new 2020 Toyota Vios to come with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) features. The revised model should come equipped with a host of additional advanced safety features and now include a pre-collision system (PCS) as well.
In the Yaris, these features complement the Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), and Front as well as Rear Digital Video Recorders (DVRs).
Connectivity and infotainment in the revised Vios should feature a 7-inch Android Auto-Ready & Apple CarPlay (AACP). Since Vehicle Telematics System is now made as a standard feature for Yaris (G&E variants) as part of the company’s direction in expanding the Connectivity under the 360-T Plus brand experience, we can expect it in the new Vios as well.
Last but not least, the new 2020 Toyota Vios is expected to arrive with maybe one or two new exterior colour options.
