Toyota Vios (Honda City rival) spied testing in Bangalore once again

Toyota Vios has been spied on test once again in India. New spy shots offers a better look at the upcoming new sedan. The Toyota Vios spied, is currently in its third generation. It is exported to some 80 countries from Thailand.

It is powered by a 1.5 litre petrol engine developing 107.50 hp max power @ 6,000 rpm and 141 Nm peak torque @ 4,200 rpm, made to 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.

Toyota Vios will sit right in between Etios and Corolla if it launches in India.

Spied Toyota Vios does not seem to be testing for launch in India, rather trying out climate, road conditions and the like for quality calibration.

India is a testing ground for many global cars and it seems Vios has taken a trip to India for no further reason. Toyota Kirloskar Motor has never indicated bringing such a product to India, but if they do launch the car here, it may not turn out to be a bad move.


But Toyota has a good reputation in India, which might help Vios gain good attention if not large sales, if it is introduced in India. Toyota Etios sedan manages over 2,000 units a month, same with hatchback version including Etios Cross (mentioned to give a perception of the nameplate’s performance in the country), and Toyota Corolla Altis sells around 1,000 numbers.
