Since its local introduction in 2003, the Toyota Vios has established itself as the Best-Selling Passenger Car Model in the Philippines with almost 320,000 units sold. From the first-generation XP40 and second generation XP90 to the third-generation XP150 and current generation models, the Vios has become an ubiquitous fixture on Philippine roads winning countless customers with its practicality, dependability and economy while endearing itself to car enthusiasts with its versatility and adaptability. From being driven as family cars and corporate service units to helping transport the masses as fleets of taxi cabs or showing its mettle as modified race cars, the Toyota Vios has done it all.

It would be a tough job for any automaker to improve on their best-selling passenger car, especially one that captured 38.6% market share of its segment in 2019. But, despite the economic uncertainties brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) rose to the challenge and officially unveiled the updated 2020 Toyota Vios. With its freshened modern design, the new updated Vios comes at the forefront of TMP’s drive to lead the resurgence of the local auto industry by responding to the Filipinos’ need for quality, efficient, and safe mode of transportation after the global pandemic. “You can count on TMP to stay true to our promise of making the world’s best Vios”, remarked TMP President Atsuhiro Okamoto, pertaining to the fact that the Vios is locally produced in Toyota’s assembly plant in Santa Rosa, Laguna. “In the process of producing the Vios locally, Toyota is helping the economy and providing livelihood to thousands of Filipino families.”
