UMW Toyota Malaysia has just announced that the all-new 2023 Toyota Vios is now available for pre-order by consumers. This time around, the manufacturer has reduced the number of variants from four to two, with the entry-level 1.5E and the top-of-the-line 1.5G being the only options. The factory has included many features as standard, making the specifications of the entry-level model quite impressive.


Visually, it’s clear that this generation of Vios has adopted Toyota’s latest family-style exterior design, complete with sharp LED headlights and taillights with a smoky effect. The front grille gives the overall look a more premium and sporty appearance. The E version of the car is fitted with Toyo Proxes CR1 tires with a size of 195/60 R16, while the top-of-the-line G version is equipped with Continental Premium Contact C tires with a size of 205/50 R17. It also features Sequential Indicator flow-style turn signals, adding to its impressive appearance.


The interior has undergone significant upgrades, with the factory utilizing a Dual Tone dashboard made of soft-touch plastics, elevating the overall quality of the interior. Other features include a 7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a digital air conditioning control panel. There is even an air conditioning vent for the rear seats, an essential feature for a family car. Additionally, the high-end models come with unique 64-color ambient lighting, an EPB electronic handbrake with Autohold function, a 360-degree panoramic camera, and more.

As for the powertrain, it features the familiar 1.5L Dual VVT-i engine paired with a brand new D-CVT transmission, delivering a maximum horsepower of 104 hp and peak torque of 138 Nm. The D-CVT transmission promises better fuel efficiency and faster acceleration, although we have yet to test drive the vehicle. The E version comes with drum brakes at the rear, while the G version is equipped with disc brakes on all four wheels, providing superior braking performance.

Safety Features

Regarding safety features, the factory has incorporated Toyota Safety Sense’s advanced active safety features throughout the entire lineup,
