2019 vs. 2020 Toyota Vios: What’s the difference?
Toyota Motor Philippines finally took off the covers of the Toyota Vios 2020 more than a year after last year's model in late July.
While it is unusual for the number one Japanese car brand to take this long between the annual models of their bestseller, the release of the 2020 Vios was likely hit by the pandemic that swept the globe. Which begs the question: how different is the new model from its predecessor? We count how the new Vios stands out.
The Toyota Vios is currently seven years in its third generation, and many of the updates are facelifted. The most noticeable change is that the fog / vent assembly is in the lower front grille, which now takes on a trapezoidal shape, as opposed to the rear trapezoid on the outgoing model. The vent / fog light assembly that ponders the lower grille has also been retooled and is now angled inward with some upward curvature. The LED headlights have also been updated for a more cohesive look.
Although there have been a lot of changes in advance, the sides and back are practically unchanged. The side of the vehicle remains marked by sleek lines, while the rear has wraparound taillights and a large bumper. The front and rear bumper aprons give the city car a touch of sportiness. A new wheel design completes the exterior updates to the 2020 Vios model.
The new Vios finally got a touchscreen display last year, and this year's model offers a new function: With a size of 7 inches, the system is now compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, the two low-rung models still have the old 2DIN audio system. Other exclusive features of the top class 1.5 G version are shift paddles, a digital climate control system and the Eco / Sport driving modes.
The instrument cluster retains its white-on-black theme, making the numbers visible and easy to spot. Not to mention that the top version Vios is equipped with a push-start system and a wireless door lock with speed detection as well as a new function of the Follow Me Home lighting control system. Overall, the interior of the Vios remains respectable given its affordable price.
Mechanically, Toyota has not made any changes to the Philippine Vios market. This means that the top variants are still powered by a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that delivers 106 hp and 140 Nm of torque. Shifting takes place either via a continuously variable transmission or a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.3 liter engine also maintains its output of 98 hp / 123 Nm. The transmission is available in CVT, 5-speed manual transmission or both, depending on the equipment.

The top model is also equipped with a Toyota vehicle security system (alarm and immobilization) as well as a Smart Entry with wireless door lock and speed sensor.
