So now, the Vios comes in four variants – Vios TRD Sportivo, Vios 1.5G, Vios 1.5E and the entry level Vios 1.5J.

The development of the TRD Sportivo came from numerous feedbacks from customers who wanted sportier look on their Vios.

All the enhancements fitted to the TRD Sportivo are assembled here to reduce cost but not compromising quality and standards.

The Sportivo started its life as the Vios 1.5S and it is then enhanced with the addition of new exterior, interior and performance parts. The exterior includes front bumper spoilers, side skirts, rear bumper spoiler and aerofoil spoiler on the edge of the bootlid.

The styling of the aerokit is exclusive for Malaysian market.

Other than the bootlid spoiler, which is made of hard ASS plastic, other items are made of flexible polyurethane (PU) therefore made them more resistant to small damages.

The TRD Sportivo is sitting on 15” 10-spoke alloy TRD wheels, complete with TRD logo embossed on the edge of the rims and the centre cap, all manufactured exclusively by Enkei.

For the interior, the TRD Sportivo carries over the amber coloured Optitron meter of the 1.5S with new carbon fibre patterned inserts for the centre console ornament and armrest panels.

New black/red fabric trim dominates the seats and door panels. The seats are given a new texture with TRD Sportivo logo stitching for the front seats.

Shift lever knob is now leather-wrapped with red stitching and the carpet mats are blessed with TRD Sportivo emblem, also with red stitching. Door sills are now decorated with TRD Sportivo stainless steel scuff plates.

For those who’d sacrifice comfort for a little bit of fun, you can opt for the optional TRD suspension kit, which consist of coil springs and gas-filled telescopic shock absorbers. This lowers the car’s height by 10mm.

The car is powered by 1.5L 4-cylinder VVT-I 4-speed automatic with super Electronic Controlled Transmission or 5-speed manual. Standards are Anti-lock Braking System, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist.

All items are factory-fitted, which means the whole vehicle is covered by the 3-year warranty or for 100,000km (whichever comes first). Bookings can be made starting 16th June ’09 but the car will only be available for viewing in July.

The TRD Sportivo Vios is priced at RM90,900. Visit www.toyota.com.my for more info.
