Goes on sale later this year

Toyota has introduced the 2014 Vios at the Bangkok Motor Show.

Designed to appeal to first time car buyers, the Vios has familiar styling that echoes the Verso and Yaris. The entry-level model has a no-frills appearance, but higher-end variants are distinguished by projector beam headlights, chrome trim and 15- or 16-inch alloy wheels. Overall, the model measures 4410mm long, 1700mm wide and 1475mm tall with a wheelbase that spans 2,550mm.

Despite being aimed at the lower end of the market, the Vios has a stylish cabin with decent materials. Notable highlights include attractive gauges, metallic accents and a four-speaker audio system with MP3/USB/AUX connectivity.

Power is provided by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that develops 109 HP (80 kW) and 141 Nm (104 lb-ft) of torque. A five-speed manual is standard, but higher-end variants come equipped with a four-speed automatic.

The Vios will be built in Thailand and will be exported to more than 80 countries.

Toyota Premieres New 'Vios' Compact for Growing Markets
Vehicle to be Exported from Thailand to More Than 80 Countries

Bangkok, Thailand, March 25, 2013—Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announces that its vehicle sales and production company in Thailand, Toyota Motor Thailand Co., Ltd. (TMT), world-premiered the new "Vios" compact car at the Bangkok Motor Show today.

In an effort to bring the fun of driving and the joy of ownership to first-time car buyers, Toyota has designed the new Vios—combining a refined exterior with class-leading comfort and high fuel efficiency—specifically for growing markets.

Approximately 130,000 units of the Vios are planned for production in Thailand this year, with more than 80,000 for domestic sales and more than 40,000 for export.

At a press conference marking the premiere, TMC Managing Officer Kyoichi Tanada said: "the Vios is not only exclusively developed for Thai customers, but also for Growing Market customers. Thailand is a leading global production hub for new Vios exports to over 80 countries around the world."

In 1997, the Vios (known then as the "Soluna"*) was first produced and sold in Thailand. It was well-received and was ranked as the top-selling model in the Thai compact car market for ten consecutive years from 2003. Exports from Thailand to other countries in ASEAN began in 1999 and cumulative sales have reached approximately 187,000 units in seven countries.

True to its founding principle of contributing to society through the manufacture of automobiles, Toyota is committed to working toward the growth of the automobile industry in Thailand while continuing to develop products that exceed consumer expectations.

More of the same but I guess they will sell these like hot cakes.There is a need for moderately priced, efficient,everyday cars worldwide ,and Toyota knows that very well. Yen is at a low, made in Thailand. How can they miss.

I see so many idiots in WCF these days. I don't think WCF put Ferrari or Porsche photo on the home page to fool you. Clearly the photo is for a small Toyota so if don't like it then you don't have to enter the article and post stupid comments like who cares about this car or not interested ...etc.

Honestly, it's design has improved tremendously from the previous model, which over here in Malaysia, we associate it with a certain sea mammal that looks like a mermaid. But with a power-train unchanged since the first gen in 03', and the most expensive variant having only 2 airbags and no Vehicle Stability Control(VSC), much is left to be desired.

Love that stance. Looks like the ground hurts its tires. Freaking cartoonish appearance, taking the worst parts of a Mazda3 front end and the unliked 2012 Civic and shrinking them for the possibility of a Cars 3 movie.
