Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) has introduced the Vios XE, which offers an array of technological features rarely seen in a subcompact sedan.
The new Vios XE an entry-level but top-quality sedan with Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that is priced at P735,000.
“Now more than ever, Filipino drivers will get to experience the comfort of automatic transmission while enjoying all the hallmark features of the Toyota brand,” said TMP first vice president Cristina Arevalo.
Under the Vios XE’s hood is the tried-and-tested 1.3L Dual VVT-i engine, which has proven itself to be a preferred powertrain for fuel efficiency.
The XE also shares the same safety features present across all Vios variants: a 5-star Asean New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) rating, seven SRS airbags, Vehicle Stability Control, Hill Start Assist, and Anti-Lock Brake System.
With the Vios XE, drivers can also relax on the road with a carefully curated playlist as the newly introduced variant comes equipped with a touch screen 7” display audio with CD/MP3, weblink for both iOS/Android, as well as Bluetooth, USB, and AUX connectivity.
In addition to its continuously variable transmission, the Vios XE makes the daily city drive easier with power steering, front and rear power windows, and power door locks.
“As a testament to the quality, durability, and reliability of its entire model lineup, Toyota brings together a new variant that combines the signature elements of an enduring automotive icon,” Arevalo added.
“And because it’s a Vios, customers can still expect to get the most out of their investment with the high resale value and reasonable maintenance cost that the model has been known for.”
The SRP for the current Vios lineup including the XE variant is as follows.
The new Toyota Vios XE comes in four colors: Thermalyte, Red Mica Metallic, Freedom White, and Alumina Jade Metallic — now available in all Toyota dealerships nationwide.
