Aside from launching the Vios GR-S, Toyota made significant adjustments to the subcompact sedan's prices. So for those planning to buy one, read this first. But before we dive into the pricing, you don't have to put down a safeguard bond to buy it. That's because the Vios is assembled in the Philippines.
Now, for the prices, and let's start with the 1.3-liter range. For the Vios Base and 1.3 J variants, the prices bump up by PHP 10,000 for both three and seven airbag models. The XE with three airbags goes up by PHP 6,000, while the one equipped with seven airbags sees an increase of PHP 55,000. As for the XLE variants, both manual and CVT-equipped models are up by PHP 10,000. That price increase also applies to both 1.3 E M/T and CVT.
But if you're in the market for the 1.5-liter versions, there is good news for you. All prices for those variants are lower than before. From the 1.5 G M/T, all the way to the 1.5 G CVT with White Pearl paint, the SRPs for these models drop by a substantial PHP 86,000. That means there are no more standard Vios models above the PHP 1,000,000 mark. These 1.5-liter models come with seven airbags and stability control as well.
So why the price adjustment? Per Toyota, this is due to the recalibration for the SRP of target variants. Toyota also factored in current customer trends, along with promos to entice those shopping for a subcompact sedan to visit their nearest Toyota dealership.
