Toyota’s Honda City & Hyundai Verna rival the Yaris Ativ / Vios sedan spied again!

Toyota is readying an all-new executive sedan to take on the segment dominated by the Honda City, Hyundai Verna and the Maruti Ciaz.

Images of the rumoured Toyota Vios sedan has been doing the rounds for a few days and now new spy images have emerged showing even more details of the new executive sedan. The new images detail the front end as well as the interior of the car.

The Toyota Ativ / Vios is already being sold in some of the Asian markets and we should get the same model. Images suggest the sedan will have large sweptback headlights with DRLs integrated on the bumper and fog lamp shrouds. Interiors of the cars are a premium affair with a dual-tone finish with black plastics and beige upholstery for the seats. There is a sporty steering wheel with three spokes as well. The centre console has a silver finish and also has a touchscreen infotainment system,, which is the norm now.

Coming to the engines, the Toyota Vios sedan will be offered with petrol engines for now, and a diesel option introduced later. There should be an automatic option with a CVT box on offer as well. With the Auto Expo close by, Toyota should give more information of the new sedan in the coming weeks.
