Toyota Kirloskar Motor has no representation in the segment between the Etios and Corolla Altis. The company initially expected to launch the Toyota Vios. The C2 segment is currently dominated by the Ciaz and the City. The Toyota Vios is a popular car in other South East Asian markets. This is thanks to its clean and trendy looks, efficient motors and high reliability. For India, however, Toyota is likely to launch an all new sedan that will closely resemble the Vios. The upcoming Toyota sedan could be ready for launch by the end of 2017. Its prices will fall in the Rs. 9 – 11 lakh range. Read on for more on Toyota Vios India launch date, price and other details.

Toyota is unlikely to bring the Vios sedan to India. However, they will launch a close relative of it. Test mules have been spotted on Indian roads on many occasions. This has lead many to believe the Vios is India bound. It has been almost a couple of years since rumours of Toyota Vios India launch first surfaced. However, Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) hasn’t yet announced any plans of bringing the Vios here.

Toyota Vios India Exterior – Design Review

The upcoming sedan will feature and exterior that will closely resemble that of the Vios seen here. It features clean straight lines all around. The front end features a sporty bumper. The headlights get projector units. At the back, the tail lamps cascade downwards into the rear bumper. While there is nothing exceptional about the design of the Toyota Vios, it is still a very smart looking product. One of the reasons why the Etios wasn’t able to attract too many buyers was its dull design. Thankfully, that is not the case with the Vios. However, the final production ready sedan for India will resemble the Vios, but will not be identical.

Toyota Vios India Interior – Design Review

The interior too borrows design cues from the Vios. Hence, it is likely to feature the same dashboard design. There is a high mounted audio unit with the AC vents placed below. This is slightly unconventional. The instrument console of the Vios features a set of three hooded dials. The final production ready Toyota Sedan is likely to get many features. These will include- touchscreen audio system, climate control, multi function steering wheel, etc.
