Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) launched the 2020 facelifted version of the Vios compact car late in July this year. From the get-go, shoppers of the country’s most popular car get nine variants in all, making the Vios more diverse than ever to meet the wide-ranging needs of the Filipino car owner.

The biggest change in the facelifted Vios is the fog lamp/air vent assembly in the lower front grille, which now takes on a trapezoid shape as opposed to the reverse-trapezoid of the outgoing model. The air vent/fog lamp assembly that dimple the lower grille has also been retooled, now angled inward with a bit of curvature up top. The LED headlights have also been updated for a more cohesive look.

Inside, the infotainment system is now compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. What’s more this touchscreen is available across the range, save for the two low-rung models, which still have the 2DIN audio system of old.

We take a look at the differences between these variants to help you know which one is better suited to your lifestyle, budget, and other considerations.
