The brand-new 2014 Toyota Vios is without a doubt an eye-turner, with its new layout and updated attributes; it has everything you need in a trusted city auto. Toyota is taken into consideration one of the most successful car manufacturer in the world, and they are leading the car market in South East Asia. Vios is also the most common car in the Philippines as a result of its reliability and gas efficiency when driving.
The third generation Vios showcases a fresh make over for both its interior and exterior. As a matter of fact, Vios looks outstanding from the side as much as its front end. Nevertheless, some individuals are not yet accustomed to its brand-new style that they assume it resembles the Honda City.
New Design – Inside and Outside
The 2014 Toyota Vios has two variations, E and G. The E is the standard version with its common attributes, while the G version is more desirable due to its elaborate devices and it has a more incorporated modern technology. Both versions have the indications on their retracting side mirrors, conventional fog lamps and door lock features. Although it coincides functions you see on many cars on the road today.
For the premium G variation, they mounted an “acoustic front windscreen,” which is crafted to remove roadway sound and to guarantee that you’ll have a smooth drive. The vehicle likewise has a significant front air intake vent, which will certainly provide you the impression that it is gaping at whoever is in front of it.
If you’re anticipating for a reverse electronic camera that will help your car parking, then you’ll be dissatisfied given that this option is not offered on both the variations. Taking into consideration that the majority of automobiles now on the marketplace have this attribute, Toyota has not yet embraced it on their autos.
For the G variation of the 2014 Toyota Vios, you will certainly discover in its front facility console the air conditioning system, 60:40 split back seat, multi-function steering, and its standard audio system. Additionally, in the main console box is the equipment stick, which is a little lightweight on the guidebook alternative unlike in Mazda 3 where the equipment stick has that solid feel.
One more significant adjustment is the dial screens, it went to the facility panel on previous versions prior to, now it’s found at the driver side. In fact, this is a benefit because you not need to turn your head just to see your speed and RPM, you can just look straight and find all the determines before you.
The 2014 Toyota Vios now sports a tachometer rev counter and blue-ring backlit speedometer where you will certainly discover all the info you need like the automobile’s fuel usage, odometer and various other basic data. Although, one of the things that would truly kindly you is the handiwork of its inside; the dash is stitch to excellence and you can even view some noticeable line of thread that would truly bring the details of its handiwork.
Accessories and Engine
Depend upon alternatives offered the price depends for 2014 Toyota Vios. And you could buy the complying with details. The optional DVD Audio– Video Navigation (DVD-AVN), reverse video camera. All this will certainly work in driving and you’ll like it.
The drive and trivialities
At 1,497 cc, I do not think we should expect much from the Vios. The in-line 4 trips rather smoothly, despite the fact that it was only placing out 107 equines from the VVT-i engine. My ride was reasonably quiet and smooth, less those loud clanks and rev sounds that the old Vios has the tendency to emit.
I really felt that the 4-speed gearbox could be a bit more polished, as it has the tendency to hop equipments unnecessarily. This was proven after a u-turn I carried out, when the gearbox suddenly decided that gear 2 was a bit too much for me to handle even at 20 km/h, and all of a sudden changed me down to 1, surging the RPM up by a massive level to hit 3,000. A similar experience when I was decreasing at the lights and chose to move off once more when it turned green. Unpleasant fool(s) and sound(s), I need to share.
If that’s fair sufficient, the fact that it holds a 4-speed drags you for quite a bit specifically when accelerating. So, don’t be distressed when your second equipment starts dragging over 40 km/h into the 50 km/h range.
The enhanced VVT-i engine is supposedly a lot more gas reliable compared with the old Vios. The gas container of the brand-new Vios holds a little above 40 litres of unleaded gasoline, however regrettably, I feel it’s 4-speed box would certainly not do justice to the fuel intake. The documented fuel usage for city driving stands at 15.8 km/l, or 6.3 l/100km, however at the fee it’s dragging its equipment throughout take-offs, this would be challenging to attain.
Toyota has now additionally included a “ECO” indication to aid “smarter” driving– in their words. It apparently is indicated to permit you to evaluate your very own driving designs in attempts to conserve gas, though I was told it is fairly pointless and not trustworthy. My Elantra has that and it does nothing close to just what it is supposed to.
2014 Toyota Vios Price and Conclusion
The 2014 Toyota Vios price differs from the tools you order with it. It varies from Euro 17692.16 OR $25,000. When I view the high quality and deluxe of the car we could claim that this is a fantastic rate.
Basically, the new Vios is a marvel from Toyota– and I should commend them for the initiative in this face lift. The drive is significantly smoother and quieter compared to the old one, and it’s design and styling two levels up. If you’re seeking a refreshing brand-new look that is not as sporty as others in its class, this could be the a lot more “toned-down-yet-still-luxurious” car for you.
Nonetheless, as I have actually pointed out earlier, if you’re the sort of driver who stresses on minute specifics and perfection in the automobile he takes care of, probably the Hyundai i30, which possesses a huge handful of state-of-the-art gizmos, would make a far better selection for you.
