Vroommm…. It’s my day out to test drive the Toyota Vios 1.5G! Well, I always thrilled when I get to drive new car. How about you? To me car is a necessity, without car I can’t imagine how to run so many errands in a day from one place to the others. I spent quite substantial amount of hours on the road everyday so I need a comfortable, durable and safe car at the same time reflects my personality as well.

What is your priority when you choose a car? I know this is a tough question, I faced the same situation like you before. After I graduated and started working I need a car to commute to work and it’s also part of my job requirements. Car priorities vary from one to the other depending on our budget, expectations, priority and also personality.

I always think that the Toyota Vios is family car until I test drive the Vios 1.5G recently. When I picked up the car at UMW Toyota Sales & Service Centre in Section 19 Petaling Jaya, Selangor my first glanced was Oh Wow! It’s eye-catching! I like the cool aerodynamic advancements design. Sexy baby… what do you think? It has solid, bold and dynamic sense of style that gives confident and the seamless curves are the new definition of stunning.

Smart Entry and Push Start system

I got the car key and can’t wait to vroom off! I enjoyed extra convenience of the Smart Entry and Push Start system. As long as the car key is in my pocket or handbag which is near to me, I no longer need to use the remote control to lock or unlock the car doors nor do I need a key to start the engine. Magic isn’t it? There is no magic, its technology.

Just pushed the button to start the engine and drive! The car pick-up is not too bad, very stable and smooth driving for long distance with fuel economy. Thanks to Toyota's reliable and proven Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence (VVT-i) engine technology. Comparing apple to an apple, the car responsiveness and performance can match the car price range.

The car seat is important too, ensuring I can have a comfortable long distance drive in the new black perforated combination leather seats. The 2015 ‘Value Beyond Belief’ concept by Toyota that has given the cabin an impressive and class-above feel is maintained. Travelling comfort over long distances is assured with the ergonomically-sound structure of the front and rear seats.

Spacious rear seats and rear flat floor

The spacious rear seats and rear flat floor make it more comfortable for passengers, more legroom and easy storage.

Did I mention about the car stability and impact absorbing body structure with high tensile steel that reduces the bump and bounce so that we all can enjoy pleasurable long drives. I can do my work or touch up make-up on the go.

Daytime Running Lights

What do you think of this new Daytime Running Lights? Not only it provides the visibility to others but also added the sleek and style to the car. For those who like a sportier look there is the optional 5-piece Aerokit.

Thanks to the advanced infotainment system in the car, it makes my journey more blissful. The new optional DVD-AVN system comes with a 7-inch capacitive touchscreen, connectivity with compatible smartphones that will allow connection to the internet, WiFi, HDMI, Bluetooth and even Voice Recognition. Besides using ‘sweep gestures’ for navigation, I can customize the display screen widgets. It comes with a reverse camera as well and images are shown on a screen with higher resolution.

506-litre trunk space (VDA)

Last but not least, most of us love the 506-litre trunk space (VDA). Girls usually carry many stuff in our car, one of the must have is shoes. I dare not count how many pairs of shoes that I have in my cars and sometimes we need space to store our shopping and etc…

The Toyota Vios comes with a 3-year/100,000 km (whichever occurs earlier after first registration) warranty, subject to conditions stated in the Owner’s Handbook. This reflects the confidence that UMW Toyota Motor has in the superior build quality of its vehicles, a hallmark of Toyota products.

Overall, to me the Toyota Vios 1.5G is Reliable, Comfortable and Affordable without compromising the performance, style and safety (ABS braking and SRS airbags); with the car price starting from RM 74,713. There are 5 exterior colours available – White, Silver Metallic, Medium Silver Metallic, Attitude Black, and Quartz Brown Metallic.

  3. If not only for the frequent floods in our city, I would have liked a small sedan like a Vios. Because of these floods, I am forced to buy a bigger car with higher clearance.

  6. Did you know that the recent accident in EDSA involving a collision of a passenger bus and a Toyota Vios literally crushed the Vios? BUT the driver of the VIOS is miraculously safe and sustained only minor injuries. So I guess that says a lot about this line. :)
