By CARSIFU | 9 January 2015

SHAH ALAM: The 2015 Toyota Vios has been upgraded significantly to make it even better value for money.

Depending on variant, on-the-road prices for the enhanced 1.5-litre Vios range from RM74,700 (J model; manual) to RM94,800 (TRD Sportivo).

It has a 3-year/100,000km (whichever occurs earlier) warranty.

The Vios 1.5E and 1.5J variants now have a Smart Entry and Push Start system which means all Vios owners no longer need to use the remote control to lock/unlock the doors nor do they need a key to start the engine.
