Inspired by the Toyota Gazoo Racing Vios Challenge race car, the appearance of the Vios Sports Edition is almost similar but can be registered for road use. It comes with a sports aerokit with a trunk spoiler and black-painted alloy wheels. Stripes around the bodywork are similar to race car.
The Vios Sports Edition also promises sharper handling with a sports suspension fitted. With this, the car’s centre of gravity is lowered by up to 27mm so it sits lower on the road. This reduces body roll during cornering, enhancing stability.
The sporty image is also reflected in the cabin with a special design on the sports fabric seats. The design with the Sports edition emblem is used for the exclusive carpet mats. The gear knob is also a sporty type while on the door sills, illuminated scuff plates with amber illumination provide protection to the bodywork while complementing the sporty image. Amber illumination is also provided in the front footwells to enhance the sporty feeling while also offering better visibility of the area.
Priced at RM85,300 (without insurance), the Vios Sports Edition comes with a 5-year warranty with unlimited mileage,subject to terms and conditions. Customer who buy the car will receive a complimentary Sports Edition merchandise which consists of TGR polo shirt than can be customised with their name, cap and tumbler.
UMW Toyota Motor is timing the new variant rollout with the Toyota Gazoo Racing Vios Challenge, which takes place next month.
