2016 Toyota Vios Review

The 2016 Toyota Vios was upgraded for previous model year, but seems like Toyota aims to make one more step forward and to offer its customers even more with 2016 model. Changes will affect the exterior and interior of the upcoming Vios, but the engine will, most likely stay unchanged.  These changes will be done as part of Vios’s mid-cycle refreshment. Here are the latest news about what we can expect from the upcoming 2016 Toyota Vios:

As we mentioned in the introduction, changes which may affect the exterior of the 2016 Vios are subtle but efficient. We can expect revision of the front and rear ends, as well as some feature upgrades. New Vios will adopt new grill, with bolder design and modernized details. Headlights will be reshaped in order to correspond with grill changes and equipped with LED lighting technology. Taillights and rear spoiler will also be slightly remodeled, but nothing extreme.  Current Vios already makes good sales results, so Japanese automaker doesn’t need to make some drastic alterations. This mid-cycle refreshment will majorly be refreshed and enhanced version of the current model.

Inside, we can expect slightly bigger changes than on the outside. Interior of the upcoming Toyota Vios will receive new trims, possibly new color pallets and feature upgrades. Materials will be enhanced, which will make big change on overall look of the cabin. Currently Vios is available in 4 variants, including G, E, J and S. All these options are expected to be carried over into the 2016 model year.
