2013 Toyota Vios is launching soon in Malaysia !

 The 2013 Toyota Vios was spotted in Malaysia and few spyshots (of the TRD Sportivo Vios) were taken in an event that resembles product training day for Toyota dealers. This might probably means that the launch day of the 4th generation Vios is not far away!

The B-segment sedan market in Malaysia is a very competitive segment in the automotive industry. With the well known models such as the affordable Nissan Almera and stylish Honda City in the B-segment, Toyota Vios faces tough challenges in order to gain a stand. The same 1.5 litre 1NZ-FE engine coupled with a 4-speed automatic gearbox found in the previous 2 generation of Vios made its way into the latest Vios. Eventhough the technology might sound dated, the engine and gearbox are proven as reliable and fuel efficient, thus lowering cost of ownership.

 Grade J, E, G and TRD Sportivo will be available, J being the entry-level grade to the TRD Sportivo grade which will get all the goodies. Indicated price for the J grade starts from RM74k for the manual transmission (looks like Toyota is not interested in joining the lowest price competition currently won by the Almera at RM66k) to RM96k for the TRD Sportivo Vios. There is no confirmation on the equipment list for each grade, but the TRD Sportivo should have leather seats, keyless entry & start, GPS navigation and Vehicle Stability Control (VSC) as standard. Dual SRS airbags most probably would be standard across the range.

On a side note, Mitsubishi Attrage (sedan version of the Mirage hatchback) is also launching soon in Malaysia. Being a slightly smaller sedan and might come with a less powerful 1.2 litre engine, the Attrage will be priced lower than the Vios, and most likely to be even lower than the cheapest Almera. The Attrage is still a Japanese car with a boot, where it is Malaysian's favourite and will poses a threat to the Vios (and also other Japanese models) when it is launched.
