SAFETY, STYLING & A BRAND NEW ATTITUDE FOR THE NEWLY-ENHANCED VIOS

Safety and styling are the two key areas that receive the greatest attention in the newly-enhanced Toyota Vios, giving the car a more athletic, dynamic and pronounced on-the-road presence.

Now sporting a more chiseled front bumper, the car’s makeover includes a new grille design, an Aero kit which comes fitted with a front lip, and defined by new triple bezel fully LED Headlights with built-in Daytime Running Light (DRL).

The new headlights are also wired with follow-me-home function for greater safety and convenience. This feature is extended throughout the introductory, intermediate and top of the range J, E and G variants respectively.

“The enhanced Vios has an even more dynamic presence with a front silhouette that is consistent with models such as the Corolla, Camry and the recently-enhanced Yaris. Yet, despite this strong family resemblance, the Vios projects its own unique personality that has made it popular with a diverse demographic of buyers,” said President of UMW Toyota Motor Sdn. Bhd.Mr. Ravindran K.

First launched in January 2019, the latest generation sub-compact 1.5-litre Vios has established itself as a popular-selling entry-level sedan, enjoying a sterling record in safety, reliability, practicality and has the distinction of being a big value for money proposition.

The first in its segment to have been awarded with a 5-star ASEAN NCAP safety rating, the enhanced Vios now comes equipped with Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) features that incorporates a pre-collision system (PCS) and a lane departure alert (LDA).

PCS is activated from 15km/h to reduce the risk of colliding with a preceding car, alerting the driver once it detects a vehicle within the colliding distance and assists to reduce vehicle speed as additional support to the driver.

LDA meanwhile, is activated from a speed of 50km/h and above, and alerts drivers to an unintended lane changes by giving a visual alert on the car’s Multi-Info Display and a beeping sound. This system can also be turned off at the discretion of the driver.

These are in addition to existing safety features built into the car in the form of 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), Brake Assist (BA), and Front as well as Rear Digital Video Recorders (DVRs). It is also the only car in it segment to be fitted with seven SRS airbags (dual front, side, curtains and driver’s knee protection).

The enhanced Vios also features an all-new 3D 360 degree panoramic view monitor, giving the driver a surround and unobstructed front, rear, top, sides and three dimensional virtual views of the vehicle.

To ensure that customers enjoy the best of navigation applications, connectivity and infotainment, the enhanced Vios is now topped with a 7” inch Android Auto-Ready & Apple CarPlay (AACP). Vehicle Telematics System is also made as a standard feature for the Vios (G&E variants) in line with the company’s direction to enhance Connectivity under its 360-T Plus brand experience.

Offered with a choice of two new colours, Orange Metallic and Platinum White Pearl, customers can also opt from existing colours available that include Dark Blue Metallic, Red Mica Metallic and Silver Metallic.

Available for online bookings and also at all authorized Toyota showrooms nationwide from today, the Vios is backed by a 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage. Prices will be announced soon and customers will continue to benefit from the current waived sales tax for new and locally-assembled vehicles.

Customers also will be able to perform online booking of this new model on the UMW Toyota official website starting 16th November 2020.

Toyota Vios Challenge Season 3 Concluded, Champions Crowned

Toyota has officially concluded Season 3 of the Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival and Toyota Vios Challenge which was cut-short no thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tengku Djan Ley Tengku Mahaleel was crowned as the overall champion of the Super Sporting class for professional drivers, while 16-year-old Hayden Haikal won the Sporting class for amateur drivers. Last but not least, TV personality Shawn Lee won the Promotional class for celebrity racers.

Having completed 75% of the series or three of the planned four rounds, the finale of Malaysia’s premier street racing series was originally scheduled for April 17-19 at the Sepang International Circuit.

However, the race was cancelled with the announcement of the Movement Control Order (MCO) and the advice against holding any public activities and gatherings until the end of the year.

According to Toyota, the final results were made after careful deliberation in adherence to and consistent with all provisions underlined by the technical and sporting regulations of the championship, and in discussion with the Motorsports Association of Malaysia (MAM), Malaysia’s governing body for motorsports.

The decision was also consistent with the best practices of other international motor-racing events.

Moving forward, UMW Toyota Motor said that season 4 will be an entirely different experience, offering racers, teams and participating dealers not only an enhanced racing format but also prize and reward structures.

The company also said that the Toyota Gazoo Racing spirit will extend beyond the Toyota Vios Challenge and provide racers with additional racing programs to compete in, such as the TGR e-Racing among others.

Summing up the season, President of UMW Toyota Motor, Ravindran K. said that the Toyota Gazoo Racing Festival and Toyota Vios Challenge has grown from strength to strength to fulfill the company’s three key objectives: to bring motorsports and Toyota’s racing spirit to the masses; to elevate Malaysian motorsports by introducing the concept of racing on street circuits; and successfully demonstrating the performance, reliability and durability of its vehicle to perform under extreme conditions.
