Toyota & Vios Edit
The Toyota Vios is one of the best-selling B-segment sedans in Malaysia, and for good reason. Besides the trusted reliability one would expect from a Toyota, the affordable price of the Toyota Vios is also one of its selling points. The Vios competes against other cars like the Honda City and Nissan Almera.

There are three variants of the Toyota Vios sold in Malaysia. They are the Vios 1.5G, 1.5E, and 1.5J.

For its price, the Toyota Vios offers a good safety package. Standard safety features available on all variants are Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Emergency Brake Distribution (EBD) and Brake Assist (BA), Vehicle Stability Control (VSC), Traction Control (TRC), Hill-start Assist Control (HAC), Emergency Stop Signal (ESS), rear parking sensors, and auto door lock.
